About

Python is becoming the language of choice for pretty much every arena. It is a very simple yet extremely powerful programming language. It is a scripting language that is widely used for prototyping to get work up and running in a short amount of time.

This course assumes no programming experience and slowly builds the tools you need to take on larger challenges. Once this is done, we dive into the fundamentals of Python programming with variables, numbers, strings, and so on. You'll learn to make decisions on your programs with conditional statements and discover that Python has the ability to iterate over the items of any sequence such as a list or a string with loops.

You will see how functions play a major role to provide a high degree of code reusing. Along with the built-in functions, you will be able to build your own functions as well. When you've done all this, you'll be ready to create modules in Python all by yourself. Finally, you'll enhance your skills by performing some very interesting manipulations on images.

Speed up your journey with the Pythonic way of programming. By the end of this course, you will be a mature Python programmer. Make use of the freedom to design programs of your choice and be ready to take your Python skills in any direction that you need.
