Coding: Python

Python coding is one of the most in-demand skills in today’s job market. Its flexibility makes it ideal for an array of applications, and its straightforward syntax allows users to focus on complex problems. Because of this, it has become the language of choice for advanced data science and machine learning applications.

You’ll complete coding challenges to learn the basics of programming. Whether you’re making an arcade-style game like Frogger or Q*Bert, or developing a program of your design, Python is ideal.

Beyond the basics, you'll learn about data and how computers can be taught or used to draw conclusions from it. Then, go into the basics of machine learning, discovering the power of neural networks and getting a head-start preparing for an exciting and lucrative future career. Machine learning experts often have starting salaries of $150,000 or more a year!

In the meantime, learning Python provides intellectual depth, allowing you to explore advanced hashing algorithms which power the security of modern web technologies like computer security and cryptocurrency. Whether you’re getting into coding for the first time or trying to level up, Python can help you do that and more.
