variety of projects ranging from data science and machine learning to
backend web development. In fact, it is one of the most in-demand
programming languages today.
Python is a great entry point into the technical world as the syntax is
much easier to learn compared to other programming languages. Because
of its syntax simplicity, Python is a common first programming language
for business and finance individuals.
do not be misinformed though! Just because Python has easier syntax
does not make it any less powerful compared to other languages. Many of
the world’s tech majors use Python as part of their technical
two-part, hands-on introductory course teaches participants
foundational Python concepts and how to use Python’s popular libraries
to complete various technical tasks. Participants are presented with
Python coding challenges throughout the day to test their understanding
of the material. The course culminates with a challenging in-class
coding project where participants apply concepts taught in the course to
create a game.
Attendees may use a PC or Mac to access slides and other resources provided for the class.
