Course Description

Python Programming: From Beginner to Intermediate is an essential training course for anyone who wants to begin learning Python. Using a Python IDE (integrated development environment) called iPython from Anaconda, the expert instructors in this course will lead you step-by-step through topics such as: functional language constructs, automated reports, website scraping, and natural language processing.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Pick up programming even if you have NO programming experience at all
  • Write Python programs of moderate complexity
  • Perform complicated text processing – splitting articles into sentences and words and doing things with them
  • Work with files, including creating Excel spreadsheets and working with zip files
  • Apply simple machine learning and natural language processing concepts such as classification, clustering and summarization
  • Understand Object-Oriented Programming in a Python context

What is the target audience?

  • Folks with zero programming experience looking to learn a new skill
  • Machine Learning and Language Processing folks looking to apply concepts in a full-fledged programming language
  • Computer Science students or software engineers with no experience in Java, but experience in Python, C++ or even C#. You might need to skip over some bits, but in general the class will still have new learning to offer you.
