Re: [python-189] Python For Beginners

Hi Josh,

I think you are right that this would not fit in a day, especially with the web application portion. The interesting thing about Python is that it is such a regular and straightforward language that students pick up the basic concepts fairly quickly. The web app part might need to be a separate course though.

Thanks for your feedback.

That looks more like a week-long course to me.  Certainly it would be
impossible to cover in one day.
