This course is designed to introduce students to the high-tech world of programming using the Python language. We will delve deeply into the inner workings of the computer, learn how to manage files and data from within our own programs, learn how humans interact with computers and learn to build user interfaces with which they can communicate.
We will focus on learning to break complex processes into small individual tasks that can be converted into programming code.  We will use these small code blocks and put them together to demonstrate the ability to accomplish complex tasks.
Python has been in use since the early 90's and holds a significantly strong place in the software development industry.  It is a great tool for non-programmers to begin learning with as it is easily readable and the learning curve to begin producing useful tools is very low.
Courses are planned for 15 weeks and are usually scheduled over a 16 to 17 week period to allow for holidays and other breaks.  Classes meet 1 day per week for 90 minutes.  In order to receive the required credit(s) students will be assigned self-study work during the days between classes.  Class time will be used offer help to students if needed and to present new topics.
This course is delivered online and has the following requirements:
Laptop or Desktop computer
Linux, Windows 10+, or MacOS
High-speed internet during class time
Headphones with microphone (Built-in computer mics are NOT acceptable due to feedback and ambient noise)
Camera (optional)
