The Berkeley Python Boot Camp Fall 2013

One of the best ways to learn a programming language is to take an intensive class for a few days and immerse yourself in it: as one example, you may be familiar with the Sci Coder classes. UC Berkeley has just hosted a Python boot camp for three days, from August 26 through August 28, aimed at rapid teaching of Python to persons already familiar with programming in languages such as C and Java, through lectures, demos, panels and breakout sessions.

You can find the program at The topics include basic Python,  Advanced Data Structures, Functions and Modules, and scientific packages such as numpy, scipy and matplotlib.

The lectures have been posted on GitHub at and many of the classes are on youTube at You can also follow the action on Twitter at #pyboot.

Here is the video of the part of the first day’s sessions:
