Python programming language: Now you can take NSA's free course for beginners & Intermediaters

NSA provides Python course after getting a Freedom of information Act (FOIA) request for its training materials

Software engineer Chris Swenson filed a Freedom of information Act (FOIA) request with the NSA for access to its Python training materials and received a lightly redacted 400-page printout of the agency's COMP 3321 Python training course.Swenson has since scanned the documents, ran OCR on the text to make it searchable, and hosted it on Digital Oceans Spaces. The material has also been uploaded to the Internet Archive.   

There doesn't look to be anything controversial in the documents, which contains course material sessions that would take between 45 and 90 minutes to complete in a class setting. The COMP 3321 course can be completed over a "full-time, two-week block" with 10 modules covered per week.
The NSA also suggests that the material could be taught at a more "leisurely pace, for instance during a weekly brown bag lunch" over several months or even over a three-day workshop.

The course offers a quick introduction to Python, its creator Guido van Rossum, and what the language is suitable for, such as automating tasks, creating a web application or doing advanced mathematical research. It also explains why Python has become so popular among beginning developers and data scientists.
