Python contains the same basic structures as other programming languages and also offers unique functionality that makes your life as a programmer easier. This course will show you how to create basic programming structures including decisions and loops. Then you'll move on to more advanced topics such as object-oriented programming with classes and exceptions. You will explore unique Python data structures such as tuples and dictionaries. You'll even learn how to create Python programs with graphic elements that range from simple circles and squares to graphical user interface (GUI) objects like buttons and labels.


Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how Python stores data and gets input from users.
  • Create function definitions to make your programs easier to read and write.
  • Learn how to create Python class files as well as objects from those classes.
  • Use the Tkinter graphics module to create and animate a variety of shapes.
  • Write code to open, read, write, and close external data files.
