Prerequisite: zero programming experience. We will go slowly so that everyone understands programming concepts, like loops and functions. This is an introduction to the essential features of Python. This tutorial includes a brief introduction to basic types (Integer, Float, String, and Boolean), if-statements, functions, lists, dictionaries, loops, and modules. We’ll look at some simple interactive tasks. After this tutorial you’ll be ready to explore all the amazing modules Python has to offer. We will work on examples in a web browser, so NO experience with Linux or the command line is necessary. This is a two part tutorial, please sign up for both parts.
