This carefully constructed course will take a programmer with a basic understanding of Python to the next level. You should feel comfortable with Python loops, variables, functions, and classes. From there we build your knowledge and cover some of the more exciting aspects of Python that tend to bite new Python programmers.
The teaching will be combined with drone programming — we will use the constructs to help us program a drone.
With a unique, fast-paced combination of lecture and lab, the student will not only listen to the material but try it out themselves (on a simulator or a real drone).
In addition, attendees will receive a copy of the slides and a cheatsheet covering the material.
Bring a laptop with Python (2 or 3) installed and a desire to learn the basics.
If you have an ARDrone feel free to bring it.
The tutorial will cover:
Matt Harrison runs Python training/consultancy shop MetaSnake. He is a Python user, presenter, author, and user group organizer. He helps run the Utah Python user group. Matt authored Treading on Python Vol 1 and 2. His work experience covers search, business intelligence, and data science.
