Our Python training course will show you why, in programming terms, Python has every angle covered. It is used extensively in the cloud, and is one of the first languages to support Google App Engine. Python is popular among scientific communities through the SciPy package. It's simplicity makes it easy enough for beginners who use a Raspberry Pi, which was originally targeted to run Python. System administrators, looking for more than shell scripts, also take to Python, given the extensive library support available.
Python is a dynamic language, object-oriented and has features enabling its use as a functional language. It also supports meta-programming structures and aspects of Lisp and Haskell.
Python can be used very effectively for rapid Test Script development and through hands-on practicals, you will see why Python is simple enough to be used to teach young children to program, advanced enough to be used by M.I.T. to teach computer science and is perhaps the most widely used dynamic language with many high quality, open source libraries and frameworks.
