This five week course (meeting on 07/09, 07/16, 07/23, 07/30, 08/06 from 6pm – 8:30pm) is our introduction to programming series featuring the programming language, Python. Python is a widely used, high level programming language that is great for learning programming, due to its focus on readability.
Our introduction to programming course provides a quick, yet in depth dive into fundamentals of programming by focusing on practical uses and giving students a hands-on experience with coding. Ultimately, we expect students to have the skills to move on afterwards to learn and apply their skills with working on open source software, independent projects, and in-general logical thinking.
* Intro to Python
* Conditional Statements
* Loops and Iteration
* File I/O
* Object Oriented Concepts
* Working with Strings
* Using Modules
In order to take this class, we’d love students to come in with:
*A working laptop with any operating system: Linux, Windows, or Mac.
*A willingness to learn, as this will be an interactive and hands on class.
*Knowledge of basic math and algebra, math logic is a plus.
*Knowledge of basic computer concepts: how to download/install software, use the internet, word processing.
