Python is an extremely powerful general-purpose programming language. It is used for data science and machine learning projects, web development, and software development. Given the ubiquitious use of Python for a variety of tasks as well as its global support, it has become one of the world's most popular languages - up there with Java, C, and C++.
In this introductory training, participants will build a core foundation in the Python programming language and how to use it for various projects. This is a hands-on course where attendees will be in development environments used by practioners and actively programming. The course concludes with a hands-on project that cohesively ties together all the covered concepts.
Attendees can use either a Mac or Windows computer for this workshop. The workshop will be conducted through virtual conference software. Instructions on how to download and configure all software will be provided prior to the course.
This class is different than our Introduction to Data Science workshops in that it focuses purely on Python as a tool. It is use-case agnostic and by the end of the training, participants will have strong foundations to tackle data science, web development, software, and general scripting-related projects. The course covers features of Python programming beyond just data science applications.
