This course will teach participants about installing and configuring Python, syntax, importing, statements, types, strings, booleans, files, lists, tuples, comprehensions, functions, and classes.
As the course starts we’ll go over Python fundamentals including how to download and install Python. It is recommended you download Python 3
First, we’ll discuss how Python can interact with command line arguments. You’ll learn how to write a Python program and run that program from the command line passing in command line arguments that the code can then retrieve and make use of within the code.
Then, take a look at some simple Python syntax. Such as defining comments, calling functions, indentation, input from the keyboard, implement statements, statement continuations, assignments, and the “pass” keyword. We’ll move on to importing modules and additional functions.
Next, you’ll learn about statements: If, Elif, and Else. Moving on to the "for" keyword for implementing for-loops, how to implement loops in your code with while keyword, exec function, and iterable objects.
Moving on to data types and number types. We’ll learn about strings, booleans, files, lists, tuples, comprehensions. Lastly, we’ll begin our exploration of functions and classes.
