Upcoming Public Classes

Introduction to Python, Washington DC, May 11-13, 2010


Why Python?

Python lets you get more programming done in less time, and helps you integrate your systems more effectively. Existing programmers who learn to use Python see almost immediate gains in productivity and lower maintenance effort.

So it's no wonder that organizations large and small have discovered the benefits of Python for themselves. Whether your needs are in the world-wide web, enterprise requirements planning, graphical user interfaces or almost any other application area Python offers the support you need. It also has one of the most supportive communities in the open source world, so when you need help it's available right away!
