Join Python instructor Greg Smith Byte Academy for a primer on the Python programming language.

Released in 1991, Python is a general-purpose programming language prioritizing human readability and understanding.

With its large standard library, as well as its third-party Python Package Index, Python provides great extensibility and can be used for anything from data science to web and API development.

In this workshop we’ll walk through the history of Python, its common uses in industry, and a basic introduction to how it works and what makes it so special. If time allows, we’ll explain the basic Python data types and how code is organized and written.

This workshop requires no coding experience, and will not feature any live coding
