Python is a general-purpose programming language. It is an interpreted language, which makes it suitable for rapid development and prototyping of programming segments or complete small programs.

Python’s main advantages:

  • Available on all major platforms (Windows, macOS, Linux)
  • It is a good language for new programmers to learn due to its straightforward, object-oriented style.
  • It is well-structured, which aids readability.
  • It is extensible (i.e. modifiable) and is supported by a large community that provides a comprehensive range of 3rd party packages.

Learning outcomes for the participants:

  • Understand Python variables, basic data types, and operators.
  • Learn to control the flow of programs using loops, conditionals, and functions in Python.
  • Learn about and manipulate Python’s built-in data structures like lists, tuples, sets, and dictionaries.
  • Understand how to read, write, and manipulate files in Python, handle exceptions, and learn the principles of object-oriented programming.
