Python is one of the most widely-used coding languages in business today, providing great flexibility & extensibility and is used for everything from data science to web and API development.

Join our instructor Gregory Smith for an overview of the basics of Python code and how to write it and run it using the Python interpreter.

Starting with the basic data types and data structures, we will also walk through some other basic coding concepts including:

– Variable declaration

– Function definition Iteration behavior

– File input/output.

This workshop will feature a mix of slides and live coding; bringing a computer to code along is not necessary but encouraged.
