Course Overview:

Python is one of the most widely used and highly valued programming languages in the world, and is especially widely used in data science, machine learning, and in other scientific computing applications. In order to use Python confidently and competently for these applications, it is necessary to have a solid foundation in the fundamentals of general purpose Python. This two day course provides a general introduction to the Python environment, the Python language, and general purpose programming in Python. We cover how to install and set up a Python computing environment, describing how to set virtual environments, how to use Python package installers, and overview some Python integrated development environments (IDE) and Python Jupyter notebooks. We then provide a comprehensive introduction to programming in Python, covering all the following major topics: data types and data container types, conditionals, iterations, functional programming, object oriented programming, modules, packages, and imports. Note that in this course, we will not be covering numerical and scientific programming in Python directly. That is provided in a subsequent two-day course, for which the topics covered in this course are a necessary prerequisite.

Intended Audience

This course is aimed at anyone who is interested in learning the fundamentals of Python generally and especially for ultimately using Python for data science and scientific applications. Although these applications are not covered directly here, but are covered in a subsequent course, the fundamentals taught here are vital for master data science and scientific applications of Python.
