Introduction to Python Programming – Google

Welcome to our Introduction to Python Programming Course! We present you the 1-month program for Python enthusiasts in collaboration with Google. This is a totally FREE course.

Python, as an interpreted and dynamic language, mainly supports object-oriented programming approaches and to a certain extent functional programming. It was found by Guido van Rossum in 1991. It is easy to write and read, extremely developer-friendly and includes vast ecosystem of different libraries.

Mainly, there are 3 application eras for Python; Web Development, Data Science and Scripting. According to Popularity of Programming Language (PYPL) report, in November 2020, “Python” search covers %30.8 of total language searches on Google Search.

In this course you will learn essentials of the Python programming language with hands-on experience. You will learn the usage era of Python, represent and store data with different data types and variables. Also, you will be familiar with complex data structures like dictionaries, sets, list and tuples. You will use conditions, loops, and functions during our course and, finally, you will learn to define your custom functions for your unique cases, write script, handle error and use libraries.

This is a self-paced learning course. You will study resources by yourself and we will increase your learning process by scheduling webinars with industry leading professionals and Q&A sessions, providing extra resources, quizzes, and mentorship during the class.
