Python is a highly in-demand programming language with a design philosophy emphasizing code readability, allowing for fewer lines of code not possible with other programming languages.
Why you should learn Python...
Python is easy to learn. The overall structure of Python is very clear and easier for new programmers to learn.
Python is a widely used, in-demand language. Google, Yahoo!, Disney, Nokia, and IBM all use Python. Because Python is so widely used, Python is frequently listed in the top in-demand programming jobs (sitepoint.com).
You will learn much more than just Python. Our course is designed to not only teach you the Python programming language, but also the real world skills of professional programmers, such as: SQL, Git, Github, Test Driven Development, Pair Programming, and many more.
Beginner Python Programming Course | 13-weeks | Tuition $6,000
DAY course (10:00Am-1:30pm) • Tues, Thurs, & Sat • 500+ study hours
Programming with Python provides students an intensive 12-week introduction to the Python programming language, SQL databases, and the Pyramid web development framework.
Designed for problem solvers without any programming experience, it covers both front and back end development, and the many industry tools junior developers use on a daily basis. Students in this course have a unique opportunity to discover how all the pieces fit together.
As part of the course, each student will build their own database driven web application that they deploy to a cloud-based server. They will learn to automate the many aspects of a development cycle so they can focus on solving problems and writing code.
In addition to writing code, students will learn to communicate their programming ideas. Students are expected to write about the problems they encounter during the course, and the discoveries they make in solving them. They will be encouraged to research topics that interest them, and present these discoveries to their fellow classmates.
Students will also code in pairs and groups, a practice that produces higher quality code and deeper understanding of programming design.
A general breakdown of the course:
- Introduction to Python and Programming Fundamentals
- SQL Databases and the Back End
- Web Development and the Front End
- Pyramid and Application Frameworks
Students in this class should expect to spend 20-40 hours outside of class each week doing homework and practicing the skills taught during class. Each class is recorded for further review of the classroom content. This allows students to practice skills learned via repetition.

Whether it is taking a risk, learning something new or just daring to believe in yourself when nobody else will, history has always favored the brave. From authors who consistently make the New York Times Best-Sellers List to epic guys in history books (and even a YouTube sensation who skyrocketed to super-stardom), here are 4 risk-takers who prove that in order to make history… you have to make the future notice you.
The field of technology is an exciting industry and full of life-long opportunities. In a time when many other industries are static or even shrinking, it almost seems as if the field of information technology is just getting started. For those looking for a satisfying and fulfilling career, that certainly is music to their ears. As with any other field though, there are many different types of working environments available and what is a good fit for one individual might not necessarily be a good fit for another. In order for you to get the job you really want, it is advisable to do a little self-analysis work before you determine the right work environment for you.
PC, consoles, handhelds and mobile. With the right core of coding skills, game design on any and all of these platforms is available to you. A career as a game designer has potential trajectories you may not have even thought of, however.
There are more opportunities than ever for programmers who want to work in emerging computer technologies. From The Internet of Things (IoT) to blockchain to virtual reality, there is no shortage of exciting fields that can provide novel work with bountiful pay and high personal fulfillment.
When you're starting out to learn coding, what language should you learn first? There's no universally accepted answer, but Ruby on Rails offers a strong case. Rails provides a complete framework for using the Ruby language, it makes doing simple things simple, and there's lots of community support.
Python is a multi-paradigm programming language that has primarily been developed as a more concise, straightforward and easy to understand alternative to other major languages such as C, Java and Perl. Python programming is designed to be highly standardized, with a clear protocol for any task and little to no need for coming up with elaborate patchwork solutions to get something done.
Tech media continues to analyze The Internet of Things, though it's perhaps still a mystifying subject for you if you haven't caught up. Otherwise known as IoT for short, this technology is already revolutionizing the way we look at Internet creating more efficiency in our lives. With 18.2 billion connected devices already available around the world, this is only going to double to 50 billion within the start of the next decade.
