The Goal

  • Cover enough Python to get kick started with the series.
  • Enable you to explore other Pythonic stuff on your own.
  • Have fun while programming!


  • RTFM
  • Ask them when you got them.
  • It’s easy to get lost so try not to be on auto pilot mode.
  • Try it before you ask!


  • Mile wide & meter deep!
  • Generalist approach.
  • Mix of theory & exercises.
  • A little bit of programming experience is preferred but not necessarily in Python.
  • Python 2.7.x
