Learn Python via Cool Projects
The Python for Scientists and Engineers course, based on my highly successful Kickstarter, seeks to teach you advanced Python by building awesome projects.
Practice, not theory
The course will be heavily practical, with little or no theory. The goal is to get you using Python for real world engineering applications. For each topic, we will choose a real case scenario and build a quick solution in Python to solve our problem.
These are the topics we will cover:
Introduction to Python
I will cover the basics of the Python, specifically for the programmers wanting to use Python for engineering.This will be a quick introduction to Python for people who know at least one other programming language.
