Warm greetings from FUNiX!
You are starting to get acquainted with the basic Python programming subject. The Python programming language is an interpreted programming language, currently in the top five most popular programming languages in the world. The demand for recruiting programmers using Python is increasing day by day with salaries also among the top in today's programming languages.
The course is built for those who have no previous programming background and experience. The theory and exercises are basic and focused on the core concepts of programming in general and Python in particular. The course introduces the following contents: Simple Python syntax; variables, functions, loops; Data structures and basic algorithms. In addition, you also get to work with files in Python and get an introduction to object-oriented programming.
Thanks to the knowledge that this subject brings, you can master the basic knowledge that is a prerequisite for you to develop further on the path to becoming a professional programmer or apply programming to your current jobs.
The course consists of 4 parts and 11 lessons. Each lesson will have videos and readings that require students to watch carefully. Students will also need to study the text and summaries of each lesson carefully. In addition, students need to do quizzes and exercises at the end of each lesson.
