(MUSIC). Hi. I'm Joe Marini and I'd like to welcome you to Up and Running with Python. This course will give you an introduction to the Python programming language. We'll start by seeing how to determine if Python is installed on your system and how to install it if it isn't already there. Next, we'll examine the basics of the language. Variables, loops, functions, classes and more. We'll also see how to build our first Python program in just a few lines of code. Then, we'll move on to working with some of Python's built-in, high-level data types just as dates, times and files. Finally, we'll wrap up by taking advantage of Python's extensive library of pre-built modules to build advanced features, like retrieving data from the internet and processing information such as HTML, XML, and Json. If you're ready to start building the next generation of cross platform applications that run in the Cloud as well as the client, then lets get up and running with Python.
