Midland, Texas February 24-26th, 2015
Dec 4, 2014 -- TeachMeGIS, a Houston based GIS training company, will bring their GIS Python training to Midland, Texas, early next year.
Task automation can save a lot of time in the workplace, but it usually requires writing script with a programming software. For those who don’t have the expertise in such fields, it can seem impossible to create scripts to provide a solution when problems arise. While there are many different platforms for writing code, it seems as though one in particular has been gaining popularity. Python is a basic scripting language, but one of the reasons it is such a success is because of its beginner friendly structure. It has a concise, easy to understand syntax, which offers users a wealth of scripting opportunities without a background in programming. Recently, ITWorld.com published an article discussing the power of Python in comparison to other scripting languages. After analyzing over 7,000 solutions to over 745 different tasks, they concluded that: “Often times, if what you’re trying to accomplish isn’t particularly complicated or input intensive, Python may do it faster and with less code.” Equipping employees with the ability to create their own scripts can result in dramatic improvements in time management and increased task performance.
With the ease of use and seemingly endless possibilities for application, it would make sense that Python was the only programming language to make it on the list of Fastest-Growing Tech Skills on Dice.com. However, there has been a lack of classes that offer Python training specifically for the GIS platform – which can be problematic for GIS users because they might not be able to get the most out of their workflows. This is especially true for those using the ArcGIS® platform, because Esri® uses Python as their main scripting language. In response to this need, TeachMeGIS has developed a Python class that is specifically tailored for utilization in GIS, rather than just learning basic Python code. Individuals who take the class develop the ability to create scripts that interact with geospatial data. This public class, which takes place at their training center year round in Houston, will also be offered in Midland, Texas, February 24-26, 2015.
