Session 0: Installing Python. Notes
This session we introduce the basics of Python and how to install it.
After installing Python, we can launch a piece of software called IDLE. We write strings in IDLE and Python programs store data in variables. We also introduce function which is a piece of code available to be reused in different contexts. Then we move to If Statement and For loops.
This session, we go through Binary search algorithm such as While loops. We also introduce Functions such as Recursion.
In this session, we look at lists which are ordered collections of values and go into details about Sorting lists. Different exercises are also covered.
Dictionaries are introduced in this session. These are another fundamental data structure and compared to lists, dictionaries are indexed by keys, not integers.
In the last session, we look at how we can use a list as a stack and wrap up the whole course.
