Python Fundamentals

In our Python Fundamentals course, students will learn the core elements of Python, one of the most widely used and fastest-growing programming languages in the world.

Python is a versatile and accessible language, making it a valuable language to learn, and a great starting point for newcomers to programming. The uses for Python vary from web apps and development to data science, machine learning, and other projects.

This course is designed as an introduction to Python and will allow programming newcomers to discover the core principles, concepts and various uses of Python. Students will become familiar with Python through discussion of programming theory, as well as through practical assignments, in which students will learn how to run and write basic Python scripts that include built-in functions and variables.

Why Programmers Use Python

Python was officially released to the public in 1991 and has risen to be one of the most popular programming languages in the world. In December 2020, Python was ranked the third most popular programming language, behind C and Java, according to the TIOBE programming community index.

Python has risen in popularity for many reasons. One of the key reasons is its simplicity. Programming scripts in other languages can often be cluttered and hard to decipher, but this is not the case with Python. Readability and simplicity make Python accessible to programmers of all skill levels.

Python is also designed to be highly extensible, which means that it provides for future growth. Python is still being modulated and updated to this day in a manner that maintains its core philosophies.

Benefits of Python

The Python Fundamentals course provides students with the foundational skills they need to work with one of the most widely used programming languages, designed with future growth in mind. The language is built to change and adapt as the programming industry changes. Python promises to be a mainstay in the industry and a skill that students will be able to use throughout the span of their careers.
