Description

The Python programming language was developed to provide a way to code that's easy to create and understand. While Python contains the same basic structures as other computer languages, it also offers unique functionality that makes your life as a programmer easier. This course will show you how to create basic programming structures like decisions and loops. Then, you will move on to more advanced topics such as object-oriented programming with classes and exceptions. In addition, you will explore unique Python data structures such as tuples and dictionaries. You will even learn how to create Python programs with graphic elements that range from simple circles and squares to graphical user interface (GUI) objects like buttons and labels.
