Python is an easy to learn yet very powerful programming language. This course has 15 self paced lessons and in each of the lessons you will write many programs to apply the concepts that are introduced in the unit. We're gonna end the course by creating a really interesting game together
Let's start by writing our very first program. It's a very short program that displays “hello w. We then introduce operators and comments in Python.
VARIABLES are location inside the computer's memory that is dedicated to storing specific data values. We review Variables and the different Data Types in Python.
In this Unit we introduce Comparison Operators and If Then Statements and how to use them to control the flow of our code by checking for certain conditions.
In this unit, we're going to learn more about BOOLEAN OPERATORS, they can help us combine different expressions in different ways, making our code cleaner and efficient.
In this unit, we're going to learn about LOOPS. LOOPS are a technique that repeats execution of the same piece of code, instead of writing this piece of code over and over and over again in our program.
FOR LOOPS are very useful when you want to go over a list or string and check its elements one by one. Lets learn more.
Python provides an easy way to take input from the keyboard. Quite similar to the print statement that output results on the council. Python has built in functions called INPUT. Let’s learn more.
In this unit, we're going to create a very simple calculator, to helpl help us recap concepts like variables, comparisons, input, and casting.
We introduce Strings and Arrays and how to use them in Python as well as string manipulation techniques.
In the last unit, we learnt how to modify strings using inbuilt Python functions. In this unit, we're going to use some of those techniques to create an advanced calculator.
An important technique when we write programs is to not repeat ourselves. A Function is a set of code that is grouped together in terms of functionality, and has a name.
A Library is a collection of functions that can be used by other coders. Today, we're going to learn about libraries, specifically a library called CS1 lib.
Instructions for computers consists of two parts. The code written by the programmers provides general instructions, and INPUT from the user provides specific instructions. Lets learn more.
