Coding with Python

This class starts introducing computer languages, programming concepts, and critical thinking.  Python is most commonly used in the world of Data Analysis. Upon completion of this course, individuals should have enough knowledge to help maintain certain data analysis applications. 

The goal of this class is to introduce growing tech minds to the basics of programming and best practices. To do this we will use python, a language used by programmers, data scientists, and software engineers. Python is an advanced computer language but is good for beginners because it is said to be easy to learn and has easy to write and understand syntax.  

Participants will come out of this module with foundational knowledge equivalent to that needed of a data analysis application administrator. 

Participants will build a foundation of knowledge on which to further grow programming language knowledge.
