Questions & Answers

Who is Powerful Python Bootcamp designed for?

Bootcamp students have a long tail of job titles. These include Data Scientists & Engineers; Software Engineers & Developers; Network Engineers; Security Engineers; Web Developers; Test Engineers; Devops/SREs; QA Automation; and many more. The common thread is technology professionals writing Python code as part of their normal work.

What are the prerequisites?

The Bootcamp is not for complete beginners. But you do not need to be a master Pythonista, either.

If you can write simple Python programs using functions, dicts and lists, and run them on the command line, you likely qualify.

To be sure, do the sample coding exercises. This will accurately tell you what the Bootcamp is like, so you can make your own decision.

How much time does this take?

We recommend you invest at least 5 hours per week, and attend at least one group mentoring session per week. Of course, more is better, but this is designed for busy professionals to fit into their schedule.

Do you have case studies or student testimonials?

Yes, many. Watch and read them, in the students' own words, right here.

Can I see some sample coding exercises?

Certainly, right here.

When are the group mentoring sessions?

Typically, there are two sessions per week, on Tuesday evenings and early Friday afternoon. The exact times occasionally shift.

What if I cannot attend the session live?

No problem. You can submit your questions ahead of time, and the instructor will answer them on the recording.
