Python is a popular widely used general-purpose, high-level programming language. Its design philosophy emphasizes code readability, and its syntax allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code than would be possible in languages such as C++ or Java. The language provides constructs intended to enable clear programs on both a small and large scale.
The course leads the students from the basics of writing and running Python scripts to more advanced features such as file operation, regular expressions, working with binary data and using the extensive functionality of python modules. Extra emphasis is placed on features unique to python such as tuples, array slices and output formatting.
