Coding & Data Analysis with Python

Learn how to program in Python, a very popular and versatile language for students in high school. This course will focus on using these programming skills to manipulate data as part of the Global Data Literacy movement.

We recommend that you consider “Big Data & the Internet of Things (IoT)” before beginning “Coding & Data Analysis with Python” as it introduces important concepts about the use of data in modern computing without requiring coding skills.

Python is a language that is not only used by Computer Scientists and Software Engineers but also in popular and new popular careers such as Data Science. Python is easy to learn compared to other Foundation languages. When using Python one can build a website, develop a game, apply machine learning tasks, harvest data from websites, perform data analysis, automate a web browser, build artificial intelligence etc.

There are many small, medium and large companies around the world that use Python. A simple search on the Internet will reveal this info and allow you to imagine the number of learning opportunities this provides. According to research provided by Cisco IBSG by the year 2020, 50 Billion devices will be connected to the Internet compared to 500 Million in 2003. Ask yourself three questions. Who is programming all of these devices? Who is managing all of these devices? How are we all interacting with all of these devices?
