Programming for Testers 5th December 2022

This course is run over 3 days.

The price shown excludes VAT. There is no exam with this course.

This course has been selected for testers, to provide an introduction to coding. It is suitable for those new to programming or Python.  We have chosen Python due to its ever growing popularity - it is now tipped to overtake Java and C for top spot as programming language of choice. 

We create a can-do mindset in class.  The teaching is carried out in very small bite-sized chunks – you learn then you do – when you do it yourself, it sticks. We immerse you in the developer world, and you will create your own programs from the start.

Note that you must have a laptop with Python and associated libraries installed – these are all freely available and we will send full instructions on how to download them.
