Tutorials, Python Courses: Online and On Site

Introduction

box Although Python is an easy to learn and powerful programming language as it is known in common parlance, there is nevertheless need of a good introduction and tutorial on the Python language.

Why yet another documentation and tutorial on Python? Aren't there enough websites with tutorials and books dealing with Python? Isn't there already everything said about this great programming language?

These were the questions which came to our mind, when we started this website in June 2010. Yes, there are lots of tutorials and introductions, but we wanted to present a different approach, with other - more interesting - examples, better explanatory diagrams and so on. We had a lot to build on, above all the longstanding experience of Bernd Klein as a computer scientist and Python lecturer. Actually, this online course is based on the material from the classroom training courses of Bodenseo and his book on Python.

A Course is not a Course

The question is ambiguous. First we want to explain, why this website is called "A Python Course". This website is seen all over the world and the expression "course" has varying meanings in the English speaking world. Both in the United States and Canada, a course is a teaching unit, which might last e.g. one academic term. The students normally get a grade or some academic credit for attending the course, usually after having passed an exam.

In the United Kingdom and Australia the term "course" usually defines the complete programme of studies required to complete a major or a study path leading to a university degree. The word "unit" is used in the UK to refer to an academic course in the North American sense.

On the one hand, we had the US and Canadian sense in mind: Our Python is one teaching unit and when you have successfully passed it, you are capable of programming in Python. On the other hand, we had the original meaning of the word in mind: A "course of instruction" as it might be used in book titles like "A Course in Programming Python".
