Use Python to build programs that can perform automation tasks, integrate with 3rd party services or control physical hardware.

Who is this class for:

Python isn't only frse-5277.or programmers and data scientists. Learning Python can open new possibilities for those in less data-heavy professions, like journalists, small business owners, or social media marketers. Python can also enable non-programmer to simplify certain tasks in their lives. Here are just a few of the tasks you could automate with Python:

  • Keep track of stock market or crypto prices
  • Send yourself a text reminder to carry an umbrella anytime it’s raining
  • Update your grocery shopping list
