CIS 4540 - Python Summer 2017 Jose Perez-carballo everything is in moodle please let me know if you are not enrolled in moodle initial roll call you can learn python by yourself so, what are we doing here? it can be argued that in the very near future, those who do not possess programming skills will become unemployable.[spronck 2017] Most of the following quotes are from the book even if I don't say it explicitly Being able to write computer programs not only entails knowing what specific code statements mean and do; it also entails having the ability think like a programmer, and to analyze problems from the perspective of solving them with a computer program. Such skills cannot be learned from a book, they can only be learned by actually creating programs. [spronck 2017] This book assumes that you have no programming skills at all, but are willing to learn. You should also have the ability to think in abstractions. [spronck 2017] If you stick to the basic chapters (everything up to dealing with text files), if you have no programming knowledge at all, you should count on having to invest between 100 and 200 hours to get to the finish. Learning everything that the book has to offer will take between 200 and 400 hours. [spronck 2017] syllabus Python is a powerful language, it is easy to use, it offers all the possibilities that any other computer language offers.
