Your new hires don't know Python

You have a Python-heavy code base. You've just hired experienced developers who don't know Python. You want to empower your new hires learn Python well, but you don't want to drain resources from the rest of your team.

If only they understood the Python way to do things

You want your new teammates to become proficient Python developers. If they start writing code in a more Pythonic fashion, it'll shorten the lag time between releases of your code and it'll boost their confidence and allow them to feel like a core part of your team.

Python Basics for experienced developers

When learning a new programming language, we always compare what we're learning to what we already know. Your developers will learn Python from the perspective of an already experienced programming. In the remote training course, Python Basics for JavaScript developers, we embrace that mentality by comparing and contrasting Python to other programming languages we know.

As we learn, we'll anchor our mental model of the Python world with our knowledge of JavaScript, C++, Java, C, or Perl. All new Python knowledge will be re-enforced by comparisons to other familiar languages. We'll discuss what's different, what's the same, and what doesn't work quite the way you might expect.

How it works

We'll meet online via video chat, 3 hours every day for 1 week. In between our sessions, your developers will work through many short programming problems, practicing test-first development along the way.

We'll cover:

  1. Variables and Conditionals
  2. Modules and Functions
  3. Lists and Loops
  4. Dictionaries and Iteration Tools
  5. Classes and Objects
  6. Code Style

Between remote training and individual exercises, your developers should expect to make a 20 to 25 hour time commitment during our week of learning together.

Don't take my word for it

“Everyone enjoyed Trey's training. I highly recommend it!”

John Coogan, Co-Founder & CTO at Soylent

“If I was learning programming again, I would definitely seek mentorship from Trey.”

June Clarke, Director at The League of Amazing Programmers

Still have questions?

» My developers learn quickly: can't we skip over the introductory material?

I will move at the pace of your developers and we'll go as deep as we need to in each section: we don't stay surface-level, even for introductory material. We'll be diving into very Python-specific features pretty quickly.

» Will you sign an NDA?

I can provide you with my own NDA. I will not sign your NDA without an additional fee.

» Can't my developers pick up the basics on their own?

I'm certain that your developers absolutely can learn Python on their own, but it may take them much more time and they may end up writing Python code that looks like JavaScript. You want your developers to write Python like a native.

No problem. Shoot me an email.

About Trey

My name is Trey Hunner. I am a director at the Python Software Foundation and a member of the Django Software Foundation.

I have a background in full-stack Django web development and many years of experience in front-end JavaScript development.

My classes are usually slide-free and exercise-heavy. I teach with my hands on the keyboard. We learn by doing, not watching.

Let's talk now

I want to help your developers level-up their Python programming skills. Want to talk about whether my remote training course is right for your team?

Availability is limited

I'm only available for one to two remote trainings each month. Scheduling is first come, first served and I'm often fully booked two to three months out. The sooner we talk, the sooner I can help your team.
