Learn The Fundamentals of Programming
This course will teach you the important details in Programming, taking you through the fundamentals of programming
About this Course
Behind every mouse click and touch-screen tap, there is a computer program that makes things happen. This course, fundamentals of programming will introduce the fundamental building blocks of programming and teaches you how to write fun and useful programs using the Python language.
SKILLS YOU WILL GAIN
- Python Syntax And Semantics
Python was created to be a very readable programming language. The Python programming language’s syntax is a set of rules that dictate how a Python program is written. Line Structure in Python: A Python program is divided into logical lines, each of which is terminated with the token NEWLINE. Fundamentals of programming will take you through the crucial parts of python syntax And semantics
- Computer Programming
Professionals use computer programming to write code that guides how a computer, application, or software program operates. Computer programming is, at its most basic level, a set of instructions for doing specified tasks. That is the essence of learning the fundamentals of programming.
- Python Programming
Python is a high-level, general-purpose programming language that is interpreted. Fundamentals of programming will introduce you to the use of considerable indentation in its design philosophy emphasizes code readability. Its language elements and object-oriented approach are aimed at assisting programmers in writing clear, logical code for both small and large-scale projects.

Syllabus – What you will learn from this course
- WEEK 1
Python, Variables, and Functions
This module gives an overview of the course, the editor we will use to write programs, and an introduction to fundamental concepts in Python including variables, mathematical expressions, and functions.
- WEEK 2
Strings and Designing Functions
This module introduces strings (a Python data type used to represent text), and a process to follow when creating a function.
- WEEK 3
Booleans, Import, Namespaces, and if Statements
This module introduces Booleans (logical values True and False), how to convert between types, how to use Boolean expressions in if statements to selectively run code and the concept of a Python module.
- WEEK 4 For Loops and Fancy String Manipulation This module introduces one way to repeat code (using a for loop), how to manipulate strings, and how to use a debugger to watch a program execute step by step.
- WEEK 5
While Loops, Lists, and Mutability
This module introduces another way to repeat code (using a while loop), how to properly document your code to help other programmers understand it, Python’s list data type, and the concept of mutation.
- WEEK 6 For Loops Over Indices, Parallel and Nested Lists and Strings, and Files
This module introduces how to use a for loop over the indexes of a list, how to nest lists, and how to read write files on The Fundamentals of Programming.
- WEEK 7
Tuples and Dictionaries
This module introduces tuples (an immutable version of lists), and Python’s dictionary type.
