Starting from scratch we learn how to start using Python and build a foundation for programming in Python. We learn and master how to use major data structures which include Strings, Lists, Dictionaries and Sets. We practice solving common problems usually asked at job interviews and learn how to write efficient and fast Python code. During this program, we cover Big-O notation, the time complexity of an algorithm, and learn most common sorting algorithms. We also learn how to open TXT and CSV files and analyze the data.

We will provide you with written materials and Python code examples as an online course-pack. Will there be additional resources and homework? Yes! Students will be provided weekly assignment to enhance their Python knowledge and conceptual understanding. Homeworks and resources are reviewed weekly.
