(COMPREHENSIVE) INTRODUCTION TO PYTHON

Although this course may appear to those new to Python, it is also
perfect for those who have tinkered with it and want to "fill in the
gaps" and/or want to get more in-depth formal training. It combines
the best of both an introduction to the language as well as a "Python
Internals" training course.

We will immerse you in the world of Python in only a few days, showing
you more than just its syntax (which you don't really need a book to
learn, right?). Knowing more about how Python works under the covers,
including the relationship between data objects and memory management,
will make you a much more effective Python programmer coming out of
the gate. 3 hands-on labs each day will help hammer the concepts home.

Come find out why Google, Yahoo!, Disney, ILM/LucasFilm, VMware, NASA,
Ubuntu, YouTube, and Red Hat all use Python. Users supporting or
jumping to Plone, Zope, TurboGears, Pylons, Django, Google App Engine,
Jython, IronPython, and Mailman will also benefit!

INTERNET PROGRAMMING WITH PYTHON

This is a one-day course with lecture and lab exposing attendees to
FOUR distinct areas of Internet programming:

* Network Programming using Sockets -- we introduce client/server
architecture and how to program sockets using Python.

* Internet Client Programming -- we learn how to use Python's standard
library to create FTP, NNTP, POP3, and SMTP clients

* Web Programming -- before you jump on all the web framework
bandwagons, it's a good idea to learn basics and the basis of how all
web servers deliver dynamic content back to the client browser to
prepare you better when jumping to a full-stack web framework

* Intro to Django -- a lightweight introduction to the Django web
framework including whipping up a very simple blog application in
20min!
