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.

Day 1 – computational thinking

  • Basic concepts of programming
  • Variables and variable types
  • Arithmetic evaluation rules
  • Looping Constructs
  • Problem Solving
  • Plenty of practical exercises throughout the day

Day 2 – extending Python

  • Procedures and Functions
  • Lists and List handling
  • Data acquisition and manipulation
  • CSV Files and Excel databases
  • Extending Python with Libraries
  • Integrated Development Environment Features
  • Shortcuts
  • Built in Methods in Python
  • Error Trapping
  • Plenty of practical exercises throughout the day

Day 3 – building your own program

Here we bring it all together by finding the relevant libraries to create our own program - so that you can see how this is done, in principle.
