Toward the end of the course fundamental object-oriented concepts are addressed, as well as database connectivity and GUI (graphical user interface) development.

Audience Profile:

This course is intended for new developers or developers who wish to transition to the Python platform. For those that are new, Python makes an excellent first programming language.
