Re: [python-189] Python For Beginners

Are you planning on having your audience already have programming experience? Knowing that might help you better plan your schedule, e.g. the logic of an if statement in python is pretty universal if someone has programmed before. But for someone who never as you might need to spend more time on distilling that logic to someone so that they can understand it.

Best of luck with the class.

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.
