Python is a widely used general-purpose, high-level programming language. Its design philosophy emphasizes code readability, and its syntax allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code than would be possible in languages such as C. The language provides constructs intended to enable clear programs on both a small and large scale. Python supports multiple programming paradigms, including object-oriented, imperative and functional programming or procedural styles. It features a dynamic type system and automatic memory management and has a large and comprehensive standard library. Like other dynamic languages, Python is often used as a scripting language, but is also used in a wide range of non-scripting contexts. Python interpreters are available for many operating systems.
This class with cover:
• History of Python.
• How and where Python is used (hint: everywhere from Google to Raspberry Pi's).
• General programming constructs and how they are implemented in Python.
• Where to find Python libraries.
There is a nominal charge ($10) for this class, to fund Nova Labs.
