Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: demonstrate the relationships between computers, programming, and programming languages; learn the fundamentals of writing Python scripts; learn core Python scripting elements such as variables and control structures; explore how to work with lists and sequence data; and learn to write Python functions to facilitate code reuse and use Python to read and write files.
Instruction focuses on fundamentals of programming using Python. Each unit introduces new programming topics, accompanied by slide decks, flow charts, coding exercises, homework lessons, and quizzes. The course also includes a final research project that allows students to leverage knowledge of programming fundamentals to create a software deliverable that fits within their range of interests. Sessions are taught in-person/virtually by UIF instructors with coding experience and IT professionals who have entrepreneurial experience.
