Join Michele Vallisneri for an in-depth discussion in this video What you need to know, part of Python: Programming Efficiently.
- [Instructor] Before getting started with this course, you'll want to have a basic working knowledge of Python. It will also be helpful to have an understanding of basic mathematical concepts such as logical variations, functions, and some trigonometry, and a minimal notion of how websites work, namely, of URLs, and of HTML. Throughout this course, if you find yourself struggling, or if something we do seems especially interesting to you, I encourage you to post a video and experiment on your own.
Your exercise files contain all the code that we will write, which you can use as a starting point for your exploration.
