Applied Python

In this project-based course trainees first learn how to work on a remote Linux server via ssh using Vim and Bash. Then they learn how to use a desktop IDE, and how to use Git and Github. After that they complete several projects under the supervision of senior NCLab Python instructors, gaining proficiency in event-driven programming and client-server programming. They also learn how to work with Docker, and how to create and use Jupyter notebooks.

Note: This course is only available as part of NCLab’s Python Developer Career Training program.
