Python beginner to the REST API

This 2-day course provides an introduction to the programming environment and explores the basics of Python. You will work in a Linux environment to learn Python expressions, functions, variables and modules. By the end of the course, you will be able to write a basic Python script that includes built-in functions and modules.

If you haven't used Linux before, you will also learn some basic Linux.

We will focus on how to use online documentation and resources so that you understand the general programming flows and how to find solutions.

Who is this course for?

Those who want to know what the python hype is about and want to get started in programming. Not only will the course teach the basics of python, but you will gain an understanding of different ways to use python and how you can use the skills that you build in this course to apply it to different problems. 

After this course, you should have the confidence to take on new programming challenges to enter new areas of expertise, like in network scripting, pulling data from different sources and repackaging it, or something like using the OpenAI API.
