Welcome to Fundamentals of Python. My name is Saima Aziz and I will be the instructor for this course.
Python is a general purpose and high level programming language. You can use Python for developing desktop GUI applications, websites and web applications. Python is a high level programming language. It allows you to focus on core functionality of the application by taking care of common programming tasks.
By taking this course, you have entered into an exciting world of self-paced, online learning! If online education is new to you, don't worry!
I have carefully designed the content of the course to be comprehensive and fully compatible with industrial requirements and easy to understand.
Each section will generally have some video content, reading material, problem sets, and a set of assessment questions to test your knowledge.
We will use Jupiter Notebook where samples can be run, and where practice tasks and code quizzes can be completed.
I encourage you to take the course from beginning to end to get the full learning experience. Some sections may be very easy for you and others will be challenging, but each section should offer something of value. There's nothing like that feeling of accomplishment when you complete something from beginning to end, so hang in there, and enjoy the course!
If you get stuck, don't give up! There is enough material in the sections to help you solve the problems and your hard work will pay off.
