In this course, you’ll learn the fundamentals of the Python programming language, along with programming best practices. You’ll learn to represent and store data using Python data types and variables, and use conditionals and loops to control the flow of your programs. You’ll harness the power of complex data structures like lists, sets, dictionaries, and tuples to store collections of related data.
This is the most comprehensive, yet straight-forward, course for the Python programming language. We cover the basics of how one constructs a program from a series of simple instructions in Python. Anyone with moderate computer experience should be able to master the materials in this course.
This course includes an overview of the various tools available for writing and running Python, and gets students coding quickly. Whether you have never programmed before, already know basic syntax, or want to learn about the advanced features of Python, this course is for you! In this course we will teach you Python 3. Lastly, you’ll learn to find and use modules in the Python Standard Library and other third-party libraries.
We will start by helping you get Python installed on your computer, regardless of your operating system, MacOS, or Windows, we’ve got you covered.
We cover a wide variety of topics, including:
- Installing Python
