Interested in learning a computer programming language but unsure of how and where to begin? This course, Learn to Program Using Python, is a great place to start.
Python is an easy and fun language to learn, and it is now one of the most popular programming languages, suitable for almost any task from developing graphical user interfaces to building web applications.
This course is an introduction to the Python programming language. This course is open to all learners who wish to gain an understanding of the basic components of computer programming. You will learn basic computer programming concepts and terminologies such as variables, constants, operators, expressions, conditional statements, loops, and functions. This Python course includes hands-on exercises to help you understand the components of Python programming while incrementally developing more significant programs. The exercises in this course will be based on small assignments which will relate to real-world problems.
No previous programming knowledge needed.
Do you want to build systems that learn from experience? Or exploit data to create simple predictive models of the world?
In this course, part of the Data Science MicroMasters program, you will learn a variety of supervised and unsupervised learning algorithms, and the theory behind those algorithms.
Using real-world case studies, you will learn how to classify images, identify salient topics in a corpus of documents, partition people according to personality profiles, and automatically capture the semantic structure of words and use it to categorize documents.
Armed with the knowledge from this course, you will be able to analyze many different types of data and to build descriptive and predictive models.
All programming examples and assignments will be in Python, using Jupyter notebooks.
This course is broad, covering a wide range of topics that have to do with the post-pc era of computing. It is a hands-on project course that also includes some foundational subjects. Students will program iPAQ handheld computers, cell phones (series 60 phones), speech processing, vision, Cricket location systems, GPS, and more. Most of the programming will be using Python®, but Python® can be learned and mastered during the course.
This course was also taught as part of the Singapore-MIT Alliance (SMA) programme as course number SMA 5508 (Pervasive Computing).
This course provides an introduction to Python and elementary principles of computing, including iteration, recursion, and binary representation of data. Additional topics on cellular automata, encryption, and the limits of computation are also introduced. The goal of this course is to introduce some of the techniques used in computer science to solve complex problems, with or without a computer. The Python modules are used to introduce and illustrate conditionals and iteration; additional topics are provided without using a specific programming language and can be incorporated into classes that do not use Python.
This course is part of the Microsoft Professional Program Certificate in Data Science.
Machine learning uses computers to run predictive models that learn from existing data in order to forecast future behaviors, outcomes, and trends.
In this data science course, you will be given clear explanations of machine learning theory combined with practical scenarios and hands-on experience building, validating, and deploying machine learning models. You will learn how to build and derive insights from these models using R, Python, and Azure Machine Learning.
In the free online course Programming Concepts with Python you will learn about programming concepts using the Python programming language. You will learn how to display text on screen and about reading user input into your program. You will also learn about creating variables and manipulating them using functions. You will learn that everyone makes mistakes when programming and you are shown solutions to help you find and fix those mistakes.<br /><br />The course begins by introducing you to what programming is and the possibilities of what you can create with programming. You will learn about the advantages of using Python to start learning how to program and you will be introduced to creating a Python project in Visual Studio. <br /><br />Next, the course teaches you about displaying text on screen using the print function. You will learn about the different variation of quotes that Python uses to contain your text, and how to get the user to input data. The course then introduces you to variables, what they are and how to create them. You will learn about manipulating variables using built-in functions. Finally, you will learn about Visual Studio's built-in feature called IntelliSense and its features and functions that will help you with your programming.<br /><br />This free Alison course will be of great interest to all learners who would like to learn about programming concepts and how to write their own programs using the Python programming language.<br />
In this introductory programming class, you’ll learn Object-Oriented Programming, a must-have technique for software engineers that will allow you to reuse and share code easily. You’ll learn by doing, and will build byte-sized (ha!) mini projects in each lesson to learn and practice programming concepts. We’ve heard that programming can be intimidating for newcomers, and we’ve created this course to make sure that you have a great learning experience! You’ll learn ***actively*** with our mini projects (see the awesome list below), which you’ll be able to share proudly with your friends. You’ll also learn important programming concepts one by one, with no surprises or leaps of logic along the way. You’ll pick up some great tools for your programming toolkit in this course! You will: - Start coding in the programming language Python; - Reuse and share code with Object-Oriented Programming; - Create and share amazing, life-hacking projects! This introductory course is for you if you want to be a software engineer, or if you want to collaborate with programmers. Mastering Object-Oriented Programming will propel your career in tech forward, and it’s also a great way to learn how software engineers think about solving problems. This course is also a part of our Full Stack Web Developer Nanodegree.
