Python is a beneficial language for use in a lot of development projects, particularly Java/C++ development. In this course, you'll learn the basics of Python programming. You'll start by installing Python on your local machine and practice writing code using the Python shell. Next, you'll perform basic math and logical operations in Python. You'll create Python variables and see how you can assign and access values stored in these variables. You'll then use built-in functions, which are part of the core Python programming language, to perform simple calculations and operations. Finally, you'll explore strings in Python work, creating strings using single, double, and triple quotes depending on the use case. You'll then briefly examine the use of complex data types, such as lists, tuples, sets, and dictionaries. When you're finished with this course, you'll be able to execute simple Python commands on Jupiter notebooks.
