• Galvanize NYC: Python 102

    Galvanize - New York

    Please RSVP for this event via link below: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/galvanize-nyc-python-102-tickets-64262229057?aff=NYDSmeetup We will learn to use the basic data types in Python in addition to loops, conditionals, and functions. This course will expand your knowledge of the fundamental "container" data structures of lists, tuples, dicts, and sets and show you how they are used by modern programmers. There are real world applications to all of these types spread through the course, and we will go through several exercises and examples to make sure these concepts make sense. We will also spend time recognizing and handling errors in Python. Errors come up all the time in coding, and the ability to catch and reason about errors is an important skill for any new programmer! Finally, we will review and debug various code snippets in Python as part of our studies. The ability to find the source of your errors, walk through and fix code with syntax and/or logical errors is a vital skill for any coders. We will help you get comfortable with reviewing other people’s Python code because this will help you become a better Python programmer.
