Basic Computer Programming with Python

Where: Library21c -1175 Chapel Hills Drive at Petritz Learning Lab

Note: when you register for this course, you are registering for all 6 weeks.
In this 6-week course, we will learn the computer coding language Python as a group. Using the book, Learn Python the Hard Way, we will perform exercises and watch videos together. This class is aimed at beginners, so you don't need to have prior computer coding experience, although you will need intermediate computer skills to participate fully in the exercises. We will be using the command line (Powershell), so previous experience with using command line is a plus, but not required as we'll do a "Crash Course" on using command line in the first session.
