Brand new to text-based programming? Check out Introduction to Python for the Absolute Beginner. A hands-on course that provides an in-depth look at the details of Python layers and concepts. Get ample practice drills and projects, using Jupyter Notebooks on Azure, which require only a browser and an Internet connection. Learn best practices and begin coding almost immediately.

After you explore data types and variables, take a look at strings, input, testing, and formatting. From there, learn about arguments and parameters, along with conditionals and nested conditionals. By the end of the course, you’ll be able to create programs that prompt users for input and use conditional (True/False) logic and Python methods to manipulate numbers and text to provide responses to the users, in addition to requesting further input. Plus, learn basic troubleshooting for your code.

  • Using Python in Jupyter Notebooks
  • Gathering input and manipulating input/output
  • Building reusable Functions with parameters and return values
  • Decisions and repetition using conditional statements and loops
