Python Programming


In this series, Daniel and Justin walk you through an in-depth primer on the Python programming language. Whether you have some other programming experience or you are completely new to coding, you will be given the tools necessary to get started writing programs with Python. They cover topics like printing output to the screen, assigning and utilizing variables, getting input from the user, decision making, iteration/loops, creating lists, dictionaries, and tuples, using and creating functions, slicing, and more. If you're looking for an easy programming language to get started, or you want to add another language to your repertoire, Python is a great choice.

[SOUND] [MUSIC] In this segment we're gonna give you a general overview of what to expect in our upcoming Python Programming series, starring my good friend here, Mr. Justin Dennison. Justin, Python programming, you've had a little experience with that in your past, so we're glad to have you onboard. First let's start here. What is the intended audience for this Python series? >> I think Python is a great language for all beginners, but I've kind of tried to think about what would help me the most if I had a diversity of backgrounds. So say I'm a sys admin, but I don't really know a lot about hardcore programming. That audience would benefit, as well as someone who just wants to get started with Python to play around with. So I've tried to make it practical while teaching beginner-level concepts, introductory-level concepts. >> Excellent. So what would you say is a good overview of what to expect in our Python series? >> So in Python, really, we gotta get started, we gotta get set up. How do we get set up? How do we run these reliably and kind of reproducibly? And then we're gonna spend some time addressing some of this basic fundamental understanding of Python, like what are lists, what are strings? What are all of these words you're saying that I don't know? And then finally we're gonna culminate in putting all of these new concepts, like functions and data types, and write something that I'm pretty sure will blow your mind. >> Sounds awesome. Now what are some specific topics that we're gonna dive into, just to whet the appetite of someone that might be interested in this? >> So how do I import new functionality from the standard library? Well, there's very specific ways to do that. Or how do I write my own functions if I want to encapsulate all of these new things I've learned? How do I write my own functions? In particular, how do I write those functions to make use of lists, which are collections of whatever you want them to be, so I can stream through those? Does that answer your question? >> Yeah, that's exactly what we're looking for. We just wanted to know some of the details of our Python course for our viewers out there that might be going, hm, this looks interesting, but tell me more about that. So thank you so much for joining us today and explaining some of what our viewers out there might expect from this course. If it sounds like something that you might be interested in, that might be helpful for you, then we look forward to seeing you in those upcoming episodes. [MUSIC]
