Ready to jump into the world of Python? The Python coding language is a must-have skill for every would-be coder! Even if you don’t want to grow up to be a coder, you STILL will have fun by learning a new coding language with Dartanion Williams, your instructor. Dart brings wit and wisdom at the same time while giving you the reasons WHY you’re learning what you’re learning! With sample code you can follow along with and modify, you’ll be coding in no time! We’re tackling such topics like: What is Python? Why is Python? What can it do? Why is it useful to you? And can you learn it without knowing anything about it? (Hint: the answer is “yes”)
