As a complementary activity to the 2019 Symposium, DBSS is organizing a one-day course on Python, an interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. Its high-level built in data structures, combined with dynamic typing and dynamic binding, make it very attractive for Rapid Application Development, as well as for use as a scripting or glue language to connect existing components together. Python supports modules and packages, which encourages program modularity and code reuse. The Python interpreter and the extensive standard library are available in source or binary form without charge for all major platforms, and can be freely distributed.

The course will be provided by Lorence Helwani in 2 sessions (9:00-13:00 and 14:00-17:00) on September 26th, in the installations of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (HvA) located at the Amstel Station in Amsterdam. The registration fee is included in the registration fee for the DBSS Symposium or free for DBSS members.
