This course is aimed at complete beginners who have never programmed before, as well as existing programmers who want to increase their career options by learning Python
Python is one of the most popular programming languages in the world. Tons of Huge companies like Google use it in mission critical applications like Google Search. It's the number one language choice for machine learning, data science and artificial intelligence.
Python is an incredibly efficient language: your programs will do more in fewer lines of code than many other languages would require. It's design philosophy emphasizes code readability. Your code will be easy to read, easy to debug, and easy to extend and build upon compared to other languages.
To get those high paying jobs you need an expert knowledge of Python, and that’s what you will get from this course. By the end of the course you’ll have a solid foundation in Python programming. And yes, this applies even if you have never programmed before. With the right skills which you will learn in this course, you can become employable and valuable in the eyes of future employers.
Section 1 - Introduction & Setup:
In the first section we're going to download Python on our computer (Windows, MAC) and set it up. We'll then download IntelliJ IDEA a very versatile IDE to use for multiple languages and especially Python. We'll also set up Python SDK so we can create and run Python code.
Section 2 - Getting Started In Python:
We'll create our first Python program. We'll learn about printing in python and learn what strings are and how we can slice them in order to extract certain data from them. We'll also understand how strings are a sequence of characters and that we can actually index through those characters, so this will be a small introduction into Lists.
Section 3 - First Steps In Python:
In this section we're going to learn about code blocks and how we can use conditional statements to execute certain code only in certain conditions. We'll learn how we can use the Debugger in IntelliJ and understand how important it is. We'll also delve into testing operators, Boolean values and Truth Tables. Finally we'll see what complex expressions are and how we can use them to our advantage to make code more readable.
Section 4 - Loops In Python:
This will probably be the most fun section. We'll delve into Loops, for loops and while loops and learn the difference between them and when to use each. We'll learn different tricks to use in loops such as break and continue and apply those tricks to create fun games. We'll also learn Binary Search Algorithm that will introduce a bit of intelligence to our program.
