About this Course

Have you ever imagined yourself being able to "communicate" with your computer and build applications that can work in a way that you want? Have you ever imagined telling your friends that you know how to code? 

Programming is one of the very important skills that people value a lot in this era. Not only it can help you get a well-paid software engineer job, but it can also train your brain to think in a logically manner. We are sure you agree with that but you are not sure where and how to start. You may be scared by the complicated programming concept, or you may be scared away by the unfriendly code. Don't worry, in this course, we will guide you how to create your first python application step by step.

What is Python?

Python is a simple, intuitive, yet powerful programming language. It is an high-level programming language invented back in 1991. It is a go-to language for beginners because it is so easy and expressive. You can often express concepts with very few lines of code. That's why we choose Python as the programming language for this course!

However, don't have a misunderstanding that Python is only for beginner. It is used in many areas including data analysis, finance, scientific research, artificial intelligence etc. Python is a very powerful programming language and is well supported the community. There are lots of useful packages like Numpy, Scipy etc. It is a programming language that supports multiple programming paradigms like procedural, functional, object-oriented etc. 

In a nutshell, if you can only learn one programming language, Python is your choice!

What exactly will you learn?

This course has a goal, which is to teach you the basic programming skills that you need in one day! 

We understand everyone is busy. We therefore specially design this course to be a quick crash course. And it is okay even if you don't have any programming experience. In this course, no experience is required!

You will learn all the important programming concept using Python as the programming language. We will teach you by using 6 different applications as an example.  

6 different applications you will write

  • BMI Calculator
  • Lucky Color
  • Lottery
  • Vocabulary Builder
  • Hunter Game
  • To-do List

Apart from the above, there are simple programming assignments in the course as well. I hope with this little challenges, you can learn better. And if you come across any questions during the course, feel free to raise it. We are here to make sure you enjoy your learning process.
