Routinely in this course, we'll construct HTML markup to create various kinds of applications. Prior knowledge of HTML is thus a clear-cut requirement.
Although CSS isn't directly associated with PHP, we'll also routinely use it to style our HTML markup.
Python is a high-level, interpreted, general-purpose programming language that powers both web and desktop platforms. It supports multiple paradigms of coding including object-oriented, procedular, functional and imperative.
It's an extremely popular programming language on the charts, capable of being used in very sophisticated fields such as data science, machine learning, AI, and web development.
It's extremely easy to use and has a very gentle learning curve. If you start today, you'll be able to develop some rigorous programs in lesser than a week!
Python favours code readability via the offside rule — where a block of code is represented by an increased level of indentation as opposed to delimiters such as
Moreover, the language offers a huge standard library to accomplish nearly any task one can think of. This is the reason why Python is referred to as a 'batteries-included' language. There are numerous extensions and packages also available that can really power up this already-powerful beast. We can develop GUIs; perform complex mathematical analysis; visualise data using graphs; process files; query databases; manipulate images; you name it!.
Python has a large developer community which actively works on the language making it even more amazing with every new update. If you would like to learn a programming language, make sure that Python is in your arsenal of skills!
This course aims at making you fluent with Python and able to code like a real Pythonista. It introduces to many aspects of Python, answers many common questions and puts you at the forefront in developing real-world Python programs.
Being specific, at the end of this course you will know:
- How to set up Python on a computer from scratch.
- How to write you first program in Python, printing the string
- What are IDEs, and which Python IDE works best for a given application.
- The basics of the language, including things such as printing stuff, receiving user input, doing math with numbers, working with variables and so on.
- The most common data types of Python — integers, floats, Booleans, strings, lists, tuples, sets and dictionaries — and how to use all of them in a program.
- What is code commenting and how to effectively comment out pieces of code.
- How to use control-flow statements; such as
elseto make selection-based execution; and
forto make iteration-based execution.
- The concept of functions and how to use them to group a block of code under a given name.
- How to work with Python numbers — in particular, the basics of numbers, the
floatclasses, how to round numbers, generate pseudo-random numbers, and operate on different number systems including binary, hexadecimal and octal.
strdata class in detail, in particular you'll have knowledge on how to create strings; process strings using
strmethods; what are raw strings; and so on.
elsestatements, and how they enable selection-based execution of code, by means of checking a condition and proceeding likewise.
- How to work with Python lists; specifically, how to create lists; use the concept of mutability; add/remove elements from a list; sort lists perform a bunch of operations on list using list methods.
- How to work with Python sets, in particular the
setclass. You'll be able to create a set; add/remove elements from a set; and most importantly, perform common operations on sets such as union, intersection, difference, superset and subset checks, and much more.
dictclass in Python to create dictionaries — a collection of key-value pairs. You'll know what are dictionary views and how to process items using numerous dictionary methods.
Although we have given roughly a lot of information on our course, you can check out more below in the course overview and explore the details of each unit separately.
Table of contents
Foundation2 hrs 31 mins 10 chaptersDescription:
In this unit, you'll get an introduction to the Python programming language, how to set it up on your computer, and how to get going with it. We'll cover most of the basics of the language including input/output, variables, control-flow statements, functions, and much more.Introduction8 minsGet Started12 minsBasics29 minsBasics Quiz9 questionsAddition Calculator ExerciseVery easyComments7 minsVariables17 minsClean Naming ExerciseVery easyData Types30 minsSorted Numbers ExerciseVery easyControl Flow16 minsRudimentary Calculator ExerciseEasyArithmetic Again ExerciseVery easyFunctions10 minsLinear Search ExerciseVery easyPalindromes ExerciseEasyOperations9 minsScoping13 mins
Numbers50 mins 4 chaptersDescription:
Here we learn how to work with numbers, in general, in Python. Specifically, we explore the two main numeric classes in Python —
float; scientific notations; arithmetic operations; rounding numbers and much more. We also explore randomness via the
randommodule and how to work with binary, octal and hexadecimal numbers.
Strings52 mins 3 chaptersDescription:
Strings are crucial to programming, and so are they to Python. In this unit, we get ourselves firm-footed on the concept of strings. We see how to create strings; solve character conflict problems; perform replication; and carry out a whole lot of processes on strings using string methods.
Control Flow40 mins 3 chaptersDescription:
Programs can't be cool if the user can't control their flow. In this unit, we explore how to control execution in our Python programs using selection statements —
else; and using loop statements —
Lists52 mins 4 chaptersDescription:
Here, we see how to work with the most commonly used immutable sequence type in Python — the
listclass. We start by getting a hands-on experience of lists, before moving on to explore list comprehensions — a superbly quick way to define lists — and list methods. Finally, we end the unit with a detailed chapter on list sorting.
Sets24 mins 2 chaptersDescription:
In this unit, we get familiar to one of the most interesting data types in Python — sets. We see how to create sets; perform operations on them such as intersection, union; how to check for subsets, supersets and much more. Lastly, we explore methods of the
setclass that enable many functionalities on Python sets.
Dictionaries33 mins 3 chaptersDescription:
In this unit, we get introduced to dictionaries in Python that can store data with given names. We see how to create dictionaries; when to create them; how to use dictionary views to retrieve given information from a dictionary; a bunch of methods of the
dictclass and so on and so forth.
Functions2 hrs 2 mins 5 chaptersDescription:
In this unit, we introduce ourselves to functions in Python. Out of the box, Python comes with numerous built-in functions to aid in common tasks such as sorting, arithmetic, string manipulation and much more. Here, we explore how functions work and how can we create our own functions. We also learn concepts such as code objects and closures. Lastly we explore lambda functions.
