Python Intro Course

posted in: Events, Online_Teaching

This course is a 2-week course with 10 1-hour classes.

About this course:
This course provides an interactive way to learn the basics of python. With projects every day, the students can practice the skills they learned in class. After attending this course, you will be able to apply the programming concepts and combine them in unique ways to create your very own applications such as training an AI or creating a game. Join the programming revolution and create the future alongside your peers. Learning python will be your first step to the broader technical future.


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. You’ll define and document your own custom functions, write scripts, and handle errors. Lastly, you’ll learn to find and use modules in the Python Standard Library and other third-party libraries.
