This interesting Python Programming course is unique and fun because of its approach: we learn to program by writing game programs. While it’s enjoyable and engaging, we cover the fundamental computer programming concepts and techniques. Topics include variables, memory, branching, loops, data structures, functions, file handling, exceptions, object-oriented programming, GUI programming, multimedia programming, and program planning.

Who should attend:

Old or young, we all love games. Learning by doing and learning while having fun, makes getting to grips with techie-concepts, standards and techniques does not have to be boring. Well ok then, adults attend on separate days.

For the Professionals:

The techniques learnt are just as easily applied to accounting systems, stock control, scientific programs and mathematical models.
