Course Description

Python is a dynamic, strongly typed, object-oriented, multipurpose scripting language for the web. In this hands-on course students first learn the basics of writing and running Python scripts and then move into more advanced topics like file operations, regular expressions, working with binary data, and how to use Python modules. Topics include basic Python language components, the IDLE environment, control flow constructs, strings, I/O, collections, classes, modules, and regular expressions.
