Introduction to Python, PyROOT and GaudiPython
Eduardo Rodrigues, 12-18 March 2008

A first course to introduce the powerful and flexible scripting language Python. The course is intended to anyone with an interest in using this alternative scripting language for general use. But the second part will focus on two applications of particular interest for LHCb and ATLAS users, with practical examples of how to deal with ROOT and the Gaudi software framework from Python.
