Python is a widely used (number two in the world) high-level programming language used for both general-purpose programming and highly specialized projects. Python has a design philosophy that emphasizes code readability, and a syntax that allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code than might be used in languages such as C++ or Java.  This course offers an introduction to Python programming.  Topics covered include introduction to Python Programming, Input, Output, Variables and Types, Conditionals, Iterations, User-defined Functions, Modules, Strings and Text Processing, File I/O and Persistence, Lists, Dictionaries, Web API’s, Data Analysis with Pandas, and Data Visualization.
