So, you’re sequestered – what a great time to commit to professional development! How about learning to code with Python?

So, you’re sequestered – what a great time to commit to professional development! How about learning to code with Python, the fastest growing and possibly the most popular programming language? 20Fathoms and tccodes are delivering new virtual services, and we’re excited about this opportunity to support and extend teclado’s “30 days of Python” project. We’ve been using their content for prior workshops, and Jose Salvatierra, the instructor, is exceptional!

What to expect from teclado?

teclado is providing a series of blog posts designed to guide you through the fundamentals of Python coding. They’re adding exercises and project to make sure you have a solid understanding and ability to use the basics. Content starts on April 1, but you’ll be able to catch up if you’re late. The training series is free! See the blog below to sign up for notifications.

What to expect from 20Fathoms and tccodes?
