Suggested background knowledge

This is an advanced course in python computer programming. Students attending the course are recommended to have already taken an introductory course on python programming. If they already had a course about programming in another language (e.g. Java, C, etc.) that's fine. Some references will be provided for a quick introduction to the python syntax.
