Learn the basics of Python, show off your new skills on your resume, and accelerate your career!
Wanna know some real-life examples of Python programming? Python was one of the primary back-end languages used to create popular apps like YouTube, Instagram, and Spotify. It's also used extensively by leading software companies like Intel, Google, and Amazon.
What makes Python so popular is its simplicity. In Python, you can write much less code than in other languages such as Java or C#. In short, coding in Python is quick and efficient. There are also nearly 150,000 third-party Python libraries that you can use for all kinds of purposes.
Our Python Basics series comprises three parts and covers all the entry-level concepts that you need to start writing your own applications. In this Python Basics Part 1 course, you'll learn about concepts such as variables, lists, conditional statements, loops, and functions. When you finish the course, you'll be able to write interactive console applications and useful Python scripts to automate common tasks.
The good news is that you don't need an IT background or any programming experience to pass this course! You can gain Python programming skills with no prior knowledge of computer science. All you need to study with us is a web browser. And we provide you with easy-to-understand explanations, practical examples, and tons of interactive exercises. At the end of each section, you'll get a quick recap of the content and take a quiz to consolidate your knowledge.
In 2018, Python rose to become one of the top programming languages in the IT community. Python is used all over the world by software engineers, academics, and computer science enthusiasts alike. It is an extremely versatile language that can be used for web development, machine learning, and data science. It's also the language of choice for most academics in various fields of study, as well as for many software engineers who want to quickly write scripts to automate their work.
