Overview

The python programming course provides participants with a solid understanding of structured python programming. Some useful python modules (mainly for data processing) will also be learned.

The course is mainly composed of two parts: python programming and advanced python modules. For the first part, you will learn about basic python programming grammar and syntax including data types, control structures, file operations, structured programming, basic debugging, etc. You will gradually be effective to use Python codes to solve certain tasks based on a lot of practice and gain knowledge of simple algorithms. In the second part, you will learn some of the most common and popular python modules in data collection, processing, analysis, and visualization.

Learning Goals:

  • Get familiar with Python programming language, be able to write Python codes to achieve functions
  • Know how to modularize your code with function, class and module, be able to write simple script for different tasks
  • Learn to find, install, use and improve a third-party Python package written by others
  • Know the basic usage of commonly used Python tools for data analysis and visualization
  • Know how to use basic crawling techniques to get data from the Internet
  • Be able to do simple data analysis tasks and show the result
