Advanced and scientific Python


This page lists a number of materials available for Python classes and seminars. Depending on the overall programme of the course, you may be asked to look at some of those pages in a different order.

Regardless the course you subscribed, the objective is always:

A first experience in programming is preferable. This course does not focus on basics of programming (conditions, loops, functions). Basic structures are just a quick reminder.

Participants to classes are all considered adults. Enough material is provided to get proficient quickly and ask questions when needed. Obviously, the more assiduous you are, the better, and learning practices best suiting you are in your hands. In particular, it is perfectly acceptable:


Programmation Python avancée

Some of the materials offered here is directly taken from the book
Programmation Python avancée.

The book (in French) is neither required nor really necessary for the seminar; it however brings a lot of advanced complementary materials for the curious reader.
