Dust off that project or porfolio
You'll be glad you did. Education is just a small part of learning- practical experience is much more important . Rather than using 'code along with me' type examples or academic examples, we encourage students to apply knowledge on their own from day one.
We focus on the fundamentals
We focus on fundamental programming, web application development and analytical skills rather than a particular qualification, credential or flavor of the month framework. We use the popular script language Python as well as tools like Flask, kivy and Jupyter.
Who uses Python?
You will find Python used in tools for app creation, web servers, machine learning, data analytics, low cost hardware devices, etc. Python is the language that is most widely taught today and is likely to remain very popular in the future as University students graduate and become the creators of new technology and startups.
You will learn the 'full stack'
Our courses are short but we still teach the 'full stack' which means coverage of programming from the database and server end ('back end') through to the code used on the app or browser to interface with the user ('front end'). We also cover SQL databases. Student work on projects of their own choosing or follow along with our examples.
You're in the right place to get started
You don't need programming experience. Our meetup group and short courses are aimed at introducing you to programming, analytics and/or improving your existing skills.
