Description

Do you want to become a programmer?

Do you want to be able to create games, work with files, manipulate data, and much more?

If you want to learn programming or are learning Python for the first time, then you've come to the right place!

Python is a powerful, modern programming language that has the capabilities required for experienced programmers, while being easy enough for beginners to learn. Python is a well-developed, stable, and fun programming language that is suitable for complex and simple development projects. Programmers love Python because of how simple and easy it is to use.

This course has everything you need to get started with Python. We'll first start with the basics of Python - learning about strings, variables, and data types. Then, we'll move on to loops and conditionals. Once we're done with that, we'll learn about functions and files in Python. All of this will culminate towards building a fun game using the concepts we've learned in Python. The entire course is filled with exercises that challenge you so that you get the best experience possible.

I hope you're excited to dive into Python with this course. So what are you waiting for? Let's get started!

Programmer, Student

Hi, I'm Abrar! I'm a student at the University of Toronto with a passion for programming.

I started learning about programming through the Stanford Engineering Everywhere program years ago, where I worked through the multiple available courses. After that, I dedicated myself towards learning Python and other programming languages so that I could build applications that are useful to people.

I'm spending most of my time off of this platform, so if you have a question that I haven't responded to on the board, feel free to message me through the other channels.
