Python is a relatively easy programming language to learn. Python statements can be interpreted using various operating systems. This course was developed with the first time programmer in-mind. Students will learn rules and syntax applicable to a modern programming language, learn how to understand and develop algorithms, gain an understanding of general programming constructs including variables, expressions, functions, branching, looping statements and data storage. Students will also design, write and debug simple computer programs using Python. This course serves as a good foundation for students looking to further their training in C, C/C++ and C# programming languages.
