Join Barron Stone for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Programming Foundations: Real-World Examples.
- The purpose of this course is to give beginner and intermediate programmers a better understanding of what goes on under the hood. My emphasis will be on programming concepts. I'll be using a programming language called Python for my code examples, but my intention is not to teach Python. I won't be spending much time discussing specific details like syntax. If you're comfortable writing a basic program in the language of your choice, you shouldn't have a problem following along. I'll walk through the steps in the Python interpreter and show you how to run the various scripts, but if you've never programmed a day in your life, Python is a great first language to learn, and up and running with Python is a great place to start.
All you really need is a healthy desire to learn, so if you're ready, let's get started.
