Python Training Immersion Course

Learning Python skills you can actually use at work!


SecureNinja’s (5) five day Python immersion course is for security professionals that have very little programming experience.

If you’ve ever struggled in a programming class because you wanted the instructor to put programming concepts in plain and simple English and if you’ve ever wanted a programming course to be about stuff you could actually use at work – this class is for you.

This is a functional programming course focused on programming concepts that can be used to accomplish common security tasks such as log parsing, password cracking, port scanning, vulnerability testing, web application security testing, malware analysis, and exploit development. There won’t be a bunch of math, no CD collection databases, and no useless programming mumbo jumbo.

Each day the students will learn a few basic programming concepts, and then use some sample code (skeleton scripts) to perform security tasks. The students will keep the skeleton
scripts so that when they get back to work they’ll have something that they can use a crib sheet to do other security tasks.
