This course teaches the viewer Python in an engaging, friendly, example-driven way. In this course, we cover computer programming using Python. We start by running a "Hello World" program, followed by the discussion of fundamentals, such as common data structures, working with strings, and program flow controls. Later, we focus on writing modular and reusable code, using functions.

After getting familiar with the basic concepts, we delve further by covering Object Oriented Programming, errors and exception handling, and working with files. We also discuss Python standard libraries and external libraries. Finally, we provide future directions and next steps for avid learners keen to take their skills to the next level.

By the end of this course the audience will be able to write Python programs and scripts that perform most of their daily tasks—including reading a list of strings, separating values by a specific delimiter, removing duplicates, and more.
