About the course

In this introductory workshop for those with no experience in computer science, students will explore the world of programming by learning the fundamental syntax and meaning of the Python programming language. The workshop will introduce the general theories of computer programming, explore basic Python concepts, and use these concepts in practical applications. We will cover branched programming, iteration, recursion, functions, and more. Toward the end of the course, we will scrape the web for companies’ stock prices, utilize Python libraries to manipulate images, and briefly touch on programming tools (public application programming interfaces, or APIs). Students will leave the workshop with a basic understanding of computer programming. The course will be a combination of lecture and lab, and students will have the opportunity to program during class.
