Google Python Class Day 1 Part 1

Google Python Class Day 1 Part 1

PYTHON This is the third post in the article series “Playing With Python And Gmail”. This will be a tutorial on how to send mails using Python smtplib through Gmail SMTP. The smtplib module defines an SMTP client session object that can be used to send mail to any Internet machine with an SMTP or ESMTP listener daemon. [vinod@mercury ~]$ python Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Jan 24 2010, 14:53:14) [GCC 4.3.2] on linux2 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import smtplib The first step is to create a SMTP connection to the server. The smtplib.SMTP class encapsulates an SMTP connection.

s Python Class - Google's Python Class - Google Code 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.

Python Utilities - Google for Education In this section, we look at a few of Python's many standard utility modules to solve common problems. File System -- os, os.path, shutil The *os* and *os.path* modules include many functions to interact with the file system. The *shutil* module can copy files. os module docs filenames = os.listdir(dir) -- list of filenames in that directory path (not including . and ..). Python Introduction - Google's Python Class - Google Code Python is a dynamic, interpreted language. Source code does not declare the types of variables or parameters or methods. This makes the code short and flexible, and you lose the compile-time type checking in the source code. Python tracks the types of all values at runtime and flags code that does not make sense as it runs. (todo: link here to the companion video segment for this section) An excellent way to see how Python code works is to run the Python interpreter and type code right into it.

Python — imaplib IMAP example with Gmail I couldn’t find all that much information about IMAP on the web, other than the RFC3501. The IMAP protocol document is absoutely key to understanding the commands available, but let me skip attempting to explain and just lead by example where I can point out the common gotchas I ran into. Let’s start by searching our inbox for all mail with the search function. Use the built in keyword “ALL” to get all results (documented in RFC3501). Learn Python in 10 minutes NOTE: If you would like some Python development done, my company, Stochastic Technologies, is available for consulting. This tutorial is available as a short ebook. The e-book features extra content from follow-up posts on various Python best practices, all in a convenient, self-contained format.

Learn Python The Hard Way Warning If you skipped Exercise 0 then you are not doing this book right. You must read every single thing I write here and read it carefully. For example, are you trying to use Python 3 for this book? I said in Exercise 0 to not use Python 3, so you should not use Python 3. Are you trying to use IDLE or an IDE? Python Gmail IMAP : part 1 « Loose Morels January 23, 2010 by verpa This is part 1 of my explanation of my gmail_imap (python) example library, please refer to parts 2, 3, 4. As I said before mocking Google for the lack of a Gmail API, we’re forced to turn to IMAP. This being an exercise in python, I turned to the standard library docs, and got no help … worse than no help, confusing ‘help’. Next up, I think we should repent and turn to Google to help us find example code that will show us the proper way to deal with imaplib.

The Lair of the Python Welcome to the home of the Voidspace Python pages. Not a snake, Python is a dynamic scripting language with a beautifully clean syntax. There's lots of code here to peruse, as well as the Techie Blog which explores life from the point of view of a Pythoneer. Python is a dynamic, object orientated, programming language. Its focus is on allowing the programmer the maximum freedom and expressiveness.

Python Course Uta Priss This is a generic version of a class "Computer Programming for Information Management" that I taught twice a year at the School of Library and Information Science, Indiana University Bloomington. The materials in this course are mostly self-explanatory and can be used for self study. (There are some references in the materials to Indiana University accounts and settings which should be ignored.) Notes: 1) The materials in this course are copyrighted.

imaplib - IMAP4 client library imaplib implements a client for communicating with Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) version 4 servers. The IMAP protocol defines a set of commands sent to the server and the responses delivered back to the client. Most of the commands are available as methods of the IMAP4 object used to communicate with the server. These examples discuss part of the IMAP protocol, but are by no means complete. Refer to RFC 3501 for complete details. Variations Python Exercises Why Turing/Java/Python in grade 11? The choice of language for grade 11 is something I assume most schools take fairly seriously. I've been teaching 13 years and every year I review my choice of languages and ask myself if they are the best choices. I assume I'm not alone in this. Every language has Pros and Cons.
