Python Fundamentals Class on Nov 27 in San Francisco, CA

Thank you for your interest in Python Fundamentals Training Course.

[top] Who is teaching this class?
This class is scheduled to be taught by Simeon Franklin.

Simeon has been been a software developer for a decade and a half with expertise in many old and annoying technologies like Visual Basic, Delphi, Perl and PHP. In 2007 while working as the lead developer for a web design firm he discovered Python and liked it so much he quit his job to use it!

Since then his career as a developer has been particularly focused on "big data" web applications but Python and Django have remained his favorite tools of choice.

For the last two years Simeon has been an expert instructor for Marakana, creating and teaching Python, Django, and client side Javascript courses for developers at technology giants like Cisco, Intel, and Facebook. He can be found hanging out and organizing the Python Community in the Bay Area at Baypiggies or SF Python Meetup and you can follow him on twitter @simeonfranklin or on his blog at
