Diploma in Python Programming
Welcome to Python - Introduction and Python Installation
This class will give you a high level description of what Python programming is all about, and why it is the best language for beginners. The lesson will familiarise you to different Python support group sites. A demo showing how to install Python in your machine and then write a basic Python script will be given.
An introduction to basic data types (strings, numbers and boolean data types) will be given. Variables and their important use cases in Python programming will be discussed. Lastly learn, other basic Python Syntax, such as how to write comments in Python programming language will also be covered.
This online class will cover different types of decision making statements in Python programming language, and how they are associated to boolean datatypes.
Control Flow and Decision Making
This lesson will cover three types of loops in Python, including For Loops, While Loops, and Nested Loops.
Python Data Types
An extensive in-depth description of Python data types will be given. We will discuss how to store, manage, extract and manipulate data stored in some of these data types
More On Data Types
Further discussion on data types will be continued in this python programming class. Difference between mutable and immutable data types will be elaborated.
Exceptions and Error Handling in Python
There are two kinds of errors in Python, syntax error and an exception. We will discuss what is an exception error, and how to handle it using raising exception and assertions statements.
In this lesson, you will be shown how to write control flow statements inside list, dictionary and tuples. We will elaborate on the efficiency and benefits of writing a program in this form (lists comprehensions).
