Due to its ease of learning and usage, Python can be easily written and executed much faster than other programming languages.

Course Overview

Python is a general-purpose programming language that has a wide range of industry applications, from small single task scripts to complete desktop applications. YouTube is largely written in Python, so too are Reddit, Pinterest, and Instagram, it is also used by Intel, IBM, NASA, Pixar, JP Morgan Chase, and several other major companies.

This course leads the students from the basics of writing and running Python scripts to more advanced features such as file operations, regular expressions, working with binary data, and using the extensive functionality of Python modules. Emphasis is placed on features unique to Python, such as tuples, array slices, and output formatting. Students should be comfortable using the basic operating system on their laptop (Linux, Unix, Windows, Solaris or Mac OS X, etc.) on which they will be running Python.
Students will each receive a copy course notes and will be able to see the instructor’s screen simultaneously while working on their own.
