Introduction to Python Course Overview
Introduction to Python is a live online class intended for middle and high school students who wish to learn the Python 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.
Learn essential concepts in object-oriented programming, including basic Python syntax, data types and functions. Harness the power of Python through libraries, and learn how to work with data using Pandas and NumPy.
Python is developed under an OSI-approved open source license, which makes it free to use and distribute. It is an interpreted language. Interpreted languages do not need to be compiled to run. Instead, a program called an interpreter runs Python code on almost any kind of computer including Mac OS, Widows, and Linux.
