Multi purpose programming with Python

Course Details:



Python is an interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. Python's simple, easy to learn syntax emphasizes readability and therefore reduces the cost of program maintenance. Python supports modules and packages, which encourages program modularity and code reuse.


The total duration of winter training is 80 Hrs. Training generally gets conducted on 5 days per week, for 4 hours daily. The full course takes upto 1 month time to complete(will be extended if required).
