This bootcamp is an intensive 2-day program designed to build a strong foundation for learning the Python programming language through expert instruction.
When: August 26–27, 10 AM - 4 PM
Where: Ryerson University, 350 Victoria St, Toronto, ON
General Admission: $99
Day 1: Objects and Control Flow
You will learn how "everything is an object" in Python and how the power of objects are accessed with their attributes and methods. You will learn how to control the order of execution with conditional and looping statements.
Day 2: Data Structures and Functions
You will learn how more complex objects such as tuples, lists, sets, and dictionaries are used in nearly every program to contain data. You will learn how to modularize programs into separate pieces by writing functions to handle individual tasks.
This course targets those who have little to no programming experience and would like a thorough introduction to the most important fundamentals of the Python programming language.
You will spend the vast majority of the time completing exercises and projects. Ted covers the most important topics during short, live coding sessions and then spends the rest of the time answering questions as you complete the assignments.
