The programming language used is Python (version 2.x) because it illustrates the basic concepts, common to all languages (variables, types, arithmetic and logical expressions, control structures, procedures, functions, recursion, etc.. ).

In this course Informatique II, we address specifically the structure of programmtion and data, using specifically object-oriented programming.


11. Simple drawings in Python
12. GUI
13. Unified Modeling Language (UML 2.x)
14. Python object-oriented
15. Document structure
16. Python and the Web
17. regular Expressions

Documentation: Handout + various data sheets.


Mid-term examination
It is a written exam (2 hours) that takes place around the middle of the semester. This examination will include questions of the same type as that requested in the semester exam. This examination is optional but highly recommended because it allows to obtain "bonus" points without incurring a "penalty".
Indeed if the student receives a score ranging from 4.5 to 5.5 will receive a bonus of 0.5.
If the note is ranging from 5.6 to 6.0 the bonus will be 1.0.

Semester Exam (June session)
It is a written examination lasting 2 hours. At the first attempt the final score is obtained by adding the note "bonus" obtained at the mid-term examination to the notes of the Semester examination.
When the student is under consideration for a second attempt only the score of theSemester Exam is taken into account for the final grade.
