Are you ready to learn about Python from the best technical trainer the world has ever seen? Tom Coffing, AKA Tera-Tom, makes learning fun, exciting, and easy. Learning Python is one of the best moves you can make in your career because it has become the premier coding language in the world.

Tom Coffing is an expert on all database systems as he has written over 85 books covering them all. Once Tom understood all databases and their SQL, he decided to learn Python.

Tom became famous as a teacher because he memorized every student's name when he greeted them. Tom has taught over 1,000 classes and never missed a single name. Ask anyone who attended a class taught by Tom Coffing.

Tom has also led a team of developers for almost 20 years to create the Nexus, which queries, migrates, and joins data across all systems. The database list below shows which systems users can query, migrate, and join data automatically with Nexus. And yes, users can run Python and Python scripts on Nexus.

Nexus version 17 can migrate from every combination between all systems as the source or the target. Nexus can also join tables and views across these systems. Imagine bringing data together from any combination of these systems and running Python scripts inside Nexus or on the Nexus Server to provide incredible value.
