About the course

The course deals with some of the fundamental concepts in Python and is intended for the absolute beginner.

We start slowly by learning how to run our first Python program and how to control the environment in which it runs. Then we will move on to Data Types so that we know what kind of data can we store and use. Afterwards, we will explore the flow of the code execution so that we may learn how to direct and control it. Finally, we will see how we can organize and group code segments into functions that then become reusable parts of the code.
