Appearing in the bowels of the European Organization for Nuclear Research back in 1989, web technologies have come a long way. Today it is a whole system of protocols, languages, software environments, applications. Most of the information contained on the World Wide Web is available in a convenient form to any user with access to the Internet.
But behind a clear facade lies a rapidly growing stack of technologies with unlimited potential and revealing a lot of opportunities for both network users and web developers. There are many tools in the arsenal of specialists to solve almost any task, but none of them can be compared with the Python language.
According to the popularity rating of the PYPL programming languages, Python currently ranks first with a 28% share and steady growth. It appeared only two years later than the World Wide Web and has now supplanted a significant part of other languages. And this is not surprising.
Python is widely used in such fundamental areas as:
- big data;
- machine learning;
- statistics and visualization;
- system administration (as a scripting language);
- game development;
- creation of software for almost all areas of human activity;
- web applications.
Python is easy to learn and is often recommended by experts as the first programming language to learn. This means that everyone can master it thanks to its convenient syntax and very nice, logical visuality of the program code.
It is no accident that the young generation is already studying all kinds of literature on this topic, communicates in thematic IT blogs, writes trial programs, and builds own personal trajectories of professional development. If your child is interested in the IT, programming languages and new technologies fr om an early age and has already paid attention to Python, then it’s time to start an in-depth learning. But wh ere should one start? Even independent learning with the classic two-volume book by M. Lutz “Learning Python”, it will take months to read.
Especially for solving such problems, the CODDY programming school together with the Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics of Moscow State University names after M.V. Lomonosov developed a new, unique educational project to create web applications in Python for children aged 13-16.
Partnership of the CODDY school and the Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics of MSU has experience in launching successful projects, so the course on web development is aimed at advanced level students - those who already have basic skills in working with the Python programming language.
Candidates will be selected based on the results of special testing aimed at revealing the level of Python proficiency. Graduates of our previous course “Development of chatbots and games in Python” also organized and conducted jointly with colleagues from Moscow State University will be able to take part in the course without an entrance test.
The duration of the course is 7 months. Its distinguishing feature is a more in-depth learning of Python as a web development language, as well as unique classes in oratory, team building and project presentations, developed by teachers from Moscow State University.
· Consolidation of knowledge of types and data structures;
· Advanced learning of object-oriented programming;
· Formation of skills for working with the command line and web application infrastructure;
· Development of web applications using the unique and convenient Flask microframework, which is successfully used in global diverse services, such as Netflix, Airbnb, Uber, Lyft, as well as social networks and media platforms, such as Reddit, Pinterest and LinkedIn;
· The study of various aspects of the use of templates, web forms and databases when creating a web application and much more.
An important part of the course will be the development and presentation of own projects, in the process of which students will train their skills in the technical aspects of web development, as well as in marketing and innovative project management. The commission of experts will include teachers from Moscow State University, teachers from the CODDY programming school and representatives of leading Russian IT companies.
