This language is now the computer language used by all leading second and third level institutes. Due to teacher demand, we are running a 3-day workshop in Wexford just drop us an email for details.

Python is currently the most popular language for teaching introductory computer science courses at top-ranked U.S. Universities. Specifically, eight of the top 10 CS departments (80%), and 27 of the top 39 (69%) teach Python in introductory CS0 or CS1 courses.

Python is a general-purpose programming language created in the late 1980s and named after Monty Python, that’s used by thousands of people to do things from testing microchips at Intel to powering Instagram, to building video games with the PyGame library.
