Target group

Working professionals with a basic understanding of Python programming seeking to build their understanding and skills with a view to practical application in their respective fields.

Prerequisites

To fully benefit from this course, participants should have a foundational understanding of Python programming. Prior experience with another coding language is beneficial but not mandatory. As this is an online course, participants will need to ensure access to a laptop or PC, a headset with a microphone and a reliable internet connection in order to participate effectively in live Q&A sessions and collaborative discussions. Participants are encouraged to bring their real-world challenges to the course, fostering a dynamic learning environment where the acquired skills directly address professional needs.

Dates

Virtual classroom sessions:

  • September 13, 2024 (Friday), 15:00 - 21:00 (CET)
  • September 20, 2024 (Saturday), 09:00 - 17:00 (CET)
  • October 05, 2024 (Saturday), 09:00 - 17:00 (CET)

Following the conclusion of the first two virtual classroom sessions, participants will undertake a period of a self-study (of 20-30 hours). This independent study phase will be accompanied by the lecturer, up to the date of the final on-site session. The lecturer will support participants for approx. 8 hours online, in the form of an open consultation, a small group workshop (or similar), by arrangement.
