Frequently Asked Questions

1. Who is this course for?

This course is aimed at engineers who are new to Python programming, but who have experience writing code in at least one other programming language. In other words, if you already understand the concepts of a variable/data type/loop in the context of computer programming, and you would like to learn the neat things that you could do with Python, then this class is for you!

2. Is this a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course)?

Absolutely not. Unlike other internet courses, this course is completely live. Your instructor lectures in real time (either on-site, or live on-line) and can answer questions and provide real-time, tailored feedback so you can reach your goals as fast as possible. At Edlitera, we believe nothing beats the experience of learning live from an elite instructor with extensive industry experience. 

3. What is the format of this course?

The course combines lecturing, hands-on exercises to be solved both individually and in pairs, as well as one or two larger projects that require participants to use their newly acquired knowledge to solve real-world problems.

Exercises and projects are chosen to be relevant to the type of problems that your team encounters daily. Our goal is to deliver practical, immediately applicable knowledge, and to empower your team to hit the ground running after each training. Our instructors can teach this course on site at your offices or live online.

4. Can you tweak the content of the course for my team?

Of course! While we do offer a standard version of this course, we can also work with you to tailor the content such that it fits your team's priorities perfectly.
