Course introduction

To create computer programs or build data science algorithms, you need to know how to use a programming language. Computer programs rely on data and logic to make their magic happen, and that requires a programmer - you - to tell the computer what to do and how. But how do you actually write programs? Where do you start?

This course is designed to teach you the fundamentals of the Python programming language and especially for the purpose of data analysis. We'll look at:

  • How to structure and group information in your program with data types.

  • How to use programming logic so that  your program does what you want it to.

  • How to use and write functions so that you can save time when writing programs.
