Millions of people use computers every day but few understand how computers do what they do. Even if you don’t plan to be a professional programmer, you’ll benefit from understanding the very basics of digital machines and from learning to write basic programs in a managed but powerful environment. By understanding how a computer works and learning to think logically, you’ll write better programs and be able to troubleshoot technical problems more easily.
You will learn
- Fundamentals of analytic logic
- How logic relates to computer science
- How to write basic programs in Python
- Functions, loops, and conditionals in Python
- How to process files
Expand your Python skills. Focus on Python data structures, and work with string, list, and range sequences. Discover the power of list iteration, and learn about string and list methods. From there, get the details on file input and output—open files, read them, add to them, close them, and more. At the end of this course, you’ll be able to slice strings into substrings, create lists, iterate through them, import files, and use file append mode, along with a lot of other practical Python tasks, as you get started coding.
