Introduction to Python 2.5 Programming
Learn to create basic programming structures using Python. This course will provide the fundamentals of computer programming in Python 2.5 with topics that include basic decisions and loops, advanced data structures, object-oriented programming, and graphical user interfaces.
The Python programming language was developed to provide a way to develop code that's easy to create and understand. While Python contains the same basic structures as other languages, it also offers unique functionality that makes your life as a programmer easier.
This course first covers basic programming structures and then moves on to more advanced topics. By the end of the course, you'll have the foundational knowledge you need to create a variety of Python files, whether they be short scripts, full programs, or graphical user interfaces.
