S Python Class - Educational Materials

S Python Class - Educational Materials
Welcome to Google's Python Class -- this is a free class for people with a little bit of programming experience who want to learn Python. The class includes written materials, lecture videos, and lots of code exercises to practice Python coding. These materials are used within Google to introduce Python to people who have just a little programming experience. The first exercises work on basic Python concepts like strings and lists, building up to the later exercises which are full programs dealing with text files, processes, and http connections. The class is geared for people who have a little bit of programming experience in some language, enough to know what a "variable" or "if statement" is. Beyond that, you do not need to be an expert programmer to use this material. This material was created by Nick Parlante working in the engEDU group at Google. Tip: Check out the Python Google Code University Forum to ask and answer questions.

Tutorial to set up PCSX2, the best emulator for PS2 The end of the previous generation of console games and the start of the current one has been heralded by loads of remakes of games less than a decade or so old, the so-called HD re-edits. Nevertheless, there is an economic alternative to such silliness (at least in most cases): the now-ancient PlayStation 2 continues to this day to be a source of titles to revisit, and an emulator like the program PCSX2 can give a layer of allure that lets you go back and enjoy them, complete with perked-up graphics. Here is a short tutorial to configure it. BIOS and gamepad setup Once you’ve installed the emulator you’ll get a wizard that lets you select the default plugins and the language for the interface.

Pandas Pivot Table Explained - Practical Business Python Introduction Most people likely have experience with pivot tables in Excel. Pandas provides a similar function called (appropriately enough) pivot_table . Best Python Resources The Python community is amazing at sharing detailed resources and helping beginners learn to program with the language. There are so many resources out there though that it can be difficult to know how to find them. This page aggregates the best general Python resources with descriptions of what they provide to readers. New to programming

Assignment 1 § Bioinformatics Algorithms (Spring 2013) Due Feb 6th Goal This class will draw from Biology and from Computer Science. Most of us are more comfortable in one are than the other. The purpose of this assignment is to get over some initial roadblocks: being able to run a Python program, knowing where to find genomic information, and putting the two parts together to count the frequencies of the 4 bases in two different organisms. Dive Into Python 3 You are here: • Dive Into Python 3 Dive Into Python 3 covers Python 3 and its differences from Python 2. Compared to Dive Into Python, it’s about 20% revised and 80% new material. Why you should play PS2 classics on PC, not PS4 Game fans had a lot to be excited about at Sony’s PlayStation Experience last week. Psychonauts 2, for example! Many of the more promising games that showed up on Sony’s stage will also be making their way to the PC, but one of the biggest announcements—or at least the one I saw the most excitement about—wasn’t about a new game. It concerned eight PS2 classics, including Dark Cloud and GTA III, being made playable on PS4... via emulation, at $15 a pop.

Tech Giants like Cisco, IBM, Mozilla, Google, Quora, Hewlett-Packard, Dropbox, and Qualcomm are using this language owing to its simplicity and elegance. Most developers prefer Python over the plethora of programming languages out there because of its emphasis on readability and efficiency. There are several reasons why you should consider Python training.

The Python Tutorial Python is an easy to learn, powerful programming language. It has efficient high-level data structures and a simple but effective approach to object-oriented programming. Python’s elegant syntax and dynamic typing, together with its interpreted nature, make it an ideal language for scripting and rapid application development in many areas on most platforms. The Python interpreter and the extensive standard library are freely available in source or binary form for all major platforms from the Python Web site, and may be freely distributed. The same site also contains distributions of and pointers to many free third party Python modules, programs and tools, and additional documentation.
