I made this because of the large endorsement Python had among hydrologist and because:

- its object oriented structure is much more firm than the R one.
- Besides, Python seems to be easy to learn by engineering students.
- Some of my colleagues seem to agree to converge toward the use of Python in their classes

Here it is the foreseen schedule of the class:
