If you have not registered and want to attend please contact Deb Wilson This Introduction to Python Programming class is geared towards GIS users who have never programmed anything in their lives. It will go over the basic fundamentals of programming with Python and finish up with laying the foundation of using Python within the ArcGIS framework. Topics will include "What is Python?", "How do I Python?", and "What about Object Oriented Programming?". There will also be an exhibition of using Python within the ArcGIS Desktop environment as well as stand alone scripting.
