Programming Essentials in Python Online

How great would it be to write your own computer program? Or design a web or desktop application that millions of people could enjoy? Both are a possibility if you learn how to code in Python. Python is the very versatile, object-oriented programming language used by startups and tech giants, Google, Facebook, Dropbox and IBM. Python is also recommended for aspiring developers who are interested in pursuing careers in Security, Networking and Internet-of-Things. Cisco calls this the language of IoT.


Upon the completion of this course, with additional self-study participants will be prepared to take the PCAP – Certified Associate in Python programming from the Python Institute. PCAP is a professional certification that measures your ability to accomplish coding tasks related to the basics of programming in the Python language and the fundamental notions and techniques used in object-oriented programming.


Hands-on labs enhance the learning process. Participants will have access to quizzes and assessments to learn to utilize the skills and knowledge gained from the course to interact with real-life programming tasks and situations.


Required preparation: No prior knowledge of programming is required, though you must be an experienced computer user. Must have access to a computer with Internet access to access the course materials and labs.
