Course Description

Python Foundations

Learn the fundamentals of the Python programming language, Python interactive environment and Anaconda Distribution. Focus on best practices for writing, testing and debugging Python code.

Python programming language can be used for desktop applications, network programming and even mobile development. It is a cross-platform language so any Python code written for one operating system, such as Windows, works seamlessly on a Mac or Linux system.

NOTE: Formerly ICT 781 Python Level 1. Students who successfully completed ICT 781 are exempt from taking ICT 778 Python Foundations.
