On 27th December 2012, ISACA Student Group @ Temasek Polytechnic organized an annual beginner’s workshop course for python language. All members from the diplomas of Digital Forensics and Cyber Digital Security were invited to attend and learn something new for the duration of 2 days. The main goal of this event was to equip the participants with some knowledge of python.
Day 1 of the event started at 10am, some eager learners had made the effort to arrive earlier. By 10 .15 am, the lab was already full consisting of mostly juniors and a handful of freshmen. The day started with Zhen Yong teaching the participants the basic commands for python and a brief overview of the use of python. After a lunch break, they continued to learn the basis of python as well as exercising their skills on some challenging practices. At the end of the first day, the participants were equipped with basic skills in python.
The objective of the second day was to put the participant’s skills of python to use. The event started at 10am where participants were given a set of challenges to complete within 2 hours. Winston Ho emerged as the winner by completing an impressive amount of challenges within the time duration and was awarded a prize for the most number of challenges done. Through this workshop, the participants were equipped with new python knowledge and got a chance to get hands-on with the challenges.
