Course Description

This course introduces beginning and intermediate programmers to the Python programming language. Even if you have no programming experience, you will learn to write simple Python programs. If you have done some programming in Python or another language, this course should greatly expand your programming knowledge.

The course is based on Python 3, the latest version of the language. The first few lessons introduce you to the basic structure of a Python program. You will learn how to work with expressions and assignments, how to use some built-in functions, and how to program with conditional and loop statements.

You will then learn about Python's advanced data structures, and how to organize your program with functions that you can write. The course will cover the foundations of object-oriented programming, which Python strongly supports. Another lesson will cover the various types of errors that may occur, and how to handle them and keep moving forward. You will also learn how to take command of text-based input and output.

In the later lessons the course will expand your knowledge of some of the many specialized libraries that are available with Python for advanced math and many other purposes. Then the fun begins, as you will see how to break free of a text-based world and use Python to manage multimedia, develop games, and construct robust graphic user interfaces for any type of program you may wish to build.

If you complete this course, you should be well on your way to becoming a productive Python programmer!
