Programming Fundamentals with Python is an immersive introduction to the programming language Python. Used by organizations such as Google, Wikipedia, and NASA, Python provides an intuitive, efficient, and useful framework for automating tasks and assessing large amounts of data.
This beginner-level class will address concepts foundational to all programming languages and provide an introduction to coding more generally using Python as its framework for learning. The class will begin with a brief discussion about how Python is used on the web, then we’ll spend the remainder of the class using Python to learn about programming basics and best practices.
By the end of class, learners will be exposed to
● Basic Syntax
● Data Types
● Logic and IF Functions
● For Loops
● Python Libraries
Learners are not expected to have significant previous coding experience prior to attending. We will be using a free, browser-based software called Repl.it, where we can create, edit, and save our work.
