Fulfills Core Programming


Python is a general-purpose programming language that is used in many application areas, including web
development, scientific computing, graphical user interfaces, systems programming, gaming, rapid prototyping,
data mining, and more. This course provides a thorough overview of the Python 3 language with an emphasis
on writing idiomatic code in Python and object-oriented design patterns and is suitable for students with some
prior programming experience. We will develop an understanding of the core features of the languages and gain
exposure to commonly used standard-library and third-party modules.
