Project Description


This online course is focused on teaching you the fundamental skills and concepts of Python — one of the world’s most popular and versatile cross-platform programming languages. Python’s popularity has grown vastly in over the last decade, because it is relatively easy to learn, is highly portable and utilises streamlined code. Some of the world’s leading tech companies use Python for their websites’ back-end, including Google, Instagram, Spotify, Netflix, Uber and Dropbox.

This online course in Python covers the core fundamentals of the Python language. You will learn to recognise and write syntactically correct Python code, recognise data types supported by Python, and be able to recognise and write Python code that will logically solve complex problems.
