Intro to Python Programming (Beginners)

Course Description

In this introductory course, you’ll learn and practice key computer science concepts by building
programs of varying complexity. You’ll learn Python, a powerful, easy-to-learn, and widely used
programming language, and you’ll explore fundamental computer science concepts by coding real world programs. In our previous classes, students have developed search engines, YouTube video
downloader, and Python-based arcade games.

This class is offered in conjunction with Ohlone for Kids and Teens and registration will take place through their portal.
