This 15-video course lets learners explore the basics of how to use the Python programming language. You will learn to set up with an interactive environment that allows you to develop and run Python scripts on your machine. Begin by installing Anaconda, an open-source distribution of the Python and R programming languages. You will learn to write your first meaningful program in Python, then create a Jupyter notebook, the most popular tool for writing and running Python code. You will learn how to do simple coding by using Python's Jupyter notebooks, and explore different Jupyter functionalities, including built-in functions. Learners will explore how to use a Python variable to store values, and learn to differentiate between variables of different types, and the different ways to assign values to variables. You will examine how variables act as containers, and you will learn how to change values that are inside a container. Finally, you will learn to use integers, floating-point numbers, strings, and to work with Boolean values.
