You will receive an introduction to the programming language – Python. The introduction is based on the professional python programming course developed by the university of Michigan (free of charge). The course provides an introduction to the professional python programming course after which you will have the tools and knowledge to continue the programming course by yourself (on the coursera platform). When you have finalized the course, you will receive a professional certificate to boost your CV.
KPMG will host these sessions, to give you a chance to ask your questions and support you along your coding journey. KPMG professionals are able to share their experiences of working with python in business.
The classes will be hosted online and will be given in English. The course is an entry level programming course and therefore most applicable for people with little to no experience in programming. Only your curiosity and commitment is required!
