The aim of the course is to provide students with no previous experience in programming sufficient skills to use Python for the back-end development of digital services.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

  • Solve independently basic programming tasks using Python.
  • Interpret and extend existing Python code.
  • Solve independently advanced programming tasks by using existing Python libraries.
  • Develop Python code that manipulates information stored in databases.
  • Develop digital services that use Python as their back-end.


  • Python language and development environments (IDEs).
  • Basic building blocks of programming (e.g., variables, conditional statements, loops, libraries, catching errors).
  • Data structures in Python (e.g., trees, dictionaries, queues, tuples).
  • Object oriented programming with Python (e.g., classes, objects, methods, inheritance, polymorphism, abstract classes).
  • Database manipulation using Python.
  • Back-end development for digital systems using Python.


The course is given in the form of lectures, computer classes and programming assignments.


To be announced 2 weeks prior to the course start.

Examination including compulsory elements

The examination is composed of a written exam, a number of programming assignments and a final project. The grading is computed considering the exam, assignments and project. Grading: fail, 3, 4, 5.
