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 young developers who are interested in pursuing careers in Security, Networking and Internet-of-Things. Upon the completion of this course, you will be prepared to take the PCAP – Certified Associate in Python programming. No prior knowledge of programming is required.

You’ll learn these core skills:

  • Problem-solve using an algorithmic approach.
  • Understand programmer's work in the software development process.
  • Gain knowledge on how a program is executed in a computer environment.
  • Prepare for the PCAP–Python Certified Associate Programmer Certification.
