Python – a high-level, general-purpose programming language
Python is one of the most loved programming languages by developers, data scientists,
and software engineers because of its versatility, flexibility, and object-oriented
features. It’s also an easy language to get started with, and the concepts carry over to many other programming languages.
Students will learn essential concepts of object-oriented programming, including basic Python syntax, data types and functions. We will also learn how to work with data and harness the power of popular Python libraries like Pandas and NumPy.
Python is free to download, and works on any computer.
