Python Courses: OpenEDG Education Platform

This means that if you want to complete the course, you need to take that particular assessment before this date. Assessment/Test deadlines are shown on your progress axis when you are signed in to your account at OpenEDG Education Platform.

The word before is a keyword here. If you're looking at your progress axis and, for example, you see two dates right below one of your assessments (e.g. Module 3 Assessment), for example: 2022-01-21 - 2022-03-10 (GMT), this means that this particular assessment remains open from January 21, 2022 till March 9, 2022 GMT inclusive. In other words, you can take this assessment on January 21, 2022 at the earliest and on March 9, 2022 at the latest.

It is omnipresent, people use numerous Python-powered devices on a daily basis, whether they realize it or not.

There have been millions (well, actually billions) of lines of code written in Python, which means almost unlimited opportunities for code reuse and learning from well-crafted examples. What’s more, there is a large and very active Python community, always happy to help.

There are also a couple of factors that make Python great for learning:

  • It is easy to learn – the time needed to learn Python is shorter than for many other languages; this means that it’s possible to start the actual programming faster;
  • It is easy to use for writing new software – it’s often possible to write code faster when using Python;
  • It is easy to obtain, install and deploy – Python is free, open and multiplatform; not all languages can boast that.

If you’re not familiar with any other languages, Python is great to begin with, because it will give you a solid foundation and allow you to learn other programming languages (e.g., C++, Java, or C) much easier and much faster. Learning Python is fun and trendy!

Please remember that you can only reschedule or cancel your exam at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. After this time you cannot make changes to your appointment and your exam fee cannot be refunded or reimbursed.
