Tech For Development -T4D would like to invite you to a high impact Training Course in Python Programming masterclass to be held in Nairobi, Kenya from 16th to 20th Dec, 2019

Course Description

Python is an interpreted object-oriented programming language. It is open source, so the interpreter and source are freely available and distributable in binary form. Python has many built-in high-level data structures and utilizes dynamic typing and binding, making it an excellent choice for both scripting and application development as it can be used for everything from web development to software development and scientific applications.

Programming in Python can be extremely quick and productive owing to the lack of a compilation step as well as the built-in debugger (also written in Python).

Who should attend?

  • Beginners with no previous programming experience.
  • Anyone looking to build the minimum Python programming skills necessary as a pre-requisite for moving into machine learning, data science, and artificial intelligence.
  • Existing programmers who want to improve their career options by learning the Python programming language.
  • If you are an expert Python programmer with extensive knowledge, and many years’ experience, then this course is probably not for you.


  • A computer (Windows, Mac, or Linux).
  • No prior knowledge of Python is required.
  • No previous programming experience needed.
