Why Python

Sebastian Heimann, Institute of Geophysics, University of Hamburg, 8.2007

The Informal Python Boot Camp

This will be a course about pragmatic and practical programming. It will neither be a beginners course nor will there be any super-advanced stuff teached. Focus will be on programming style, elegance, modern and simple techniques and to give starting points for own explorations rather than giving a purely technical introduction to Python.

I have choosen to use Python as the programming language to go, because of the reasons summarized here. I have to admit, that I am not really an expert on Python. If you know Python, you are invited to help!

Who is invited?
