Python 101: Programming with Jupyter Notebook
Python is one of the most feature-packed coding languages ever! At the same time it boasts of a clean syntax and programming style that encourages step-by-step compositional programming.
Several complex applications, including games, chatbots and robot navigators are being programmed in Python.
This course will provide a thorough introduction to Python by taking you gently through the language. You will be introduced to using Python as a calculator, manipulating text in your Python programs and developing basic control structures.
We will finish the course by coding our very own text-based game!
