Course Overview


Technologies

The course takes you through the major tools that you need to develop effective programs to solve computational problems. It assumes a basic knowledge of programming but begins with a refresher of Python. After equipping the learner with the tools they need for complex problems solving, the learner is presented with challenging problems to solve using the skills they have acquired.

Programming is made up of two parts. The first is the development of an algorithm which solves a given computational problem. The second is the coding of this algorithm into a computer program to be executed by the machine. We emphasise this difference as we build a solid grounding for programmers that complete this course.

Course Syllabus




Our courses are designed to help you learn programming skills through practice. Here are the practical projects you'll complete with the help of a mentor as part of this course:



SECTION 1

Snake Charming

We get an introduction into this high level and easily understandable language. We learn how to control our program through the variety of built in structures, as well as how to store data through the life of our program and get input from our user - and how to return information to our users as well.

SECTION 2

The Full Monty

We take the knowledge from the previous stages in the course and apply it to more advanced concepts that Python's power allows us to implement relatively easily. We'll be looking at complex concepts such as Bioinformatics, Language Processing, Location Plotting, and Machine Learning. All of these are highly valuable concepts in the the world of modern consumer computing.

Why Take This Course?



Python is a relatively new programming language. But is has already build up a substantial user base and community because of its ability to deliver on it’s said promise to make code simple, readable, beautiful and explicit. This is a fun language that can be used to develop not only applications that run on a desktop, but web based applications as well. This means that after taking this course, you can branch into web development fairly easily, with a framework like Django, without having to learn another programming language.

Learning the intermediate concepts of programming with this language peppers the experience with more fun. With tabs replacing the conventional curly braces, power list and dictionary data structures, and an extensive standard library, your journey to mastering the more advanced concepts and tools of programming is sure to an exciting one.
