  • students of secondary schools,
  • university students,
  • students of vocational schools,
  • or simply anyone interested in learning programming.

The only preliminary requirement is the ability to use a personal computer and very basic knowledge in mathematics.

Why should you take this course?

Start programming in Python! Taking the course gives you the opportunity to dive into computer programming with no specific prerequisites.

The main goal of the course is to guide you from a state of complete programming illiteracy to a level of programming knowledge which allows you to design, write, debug, and run programs encoded in the Python language, and to understand the basic concepts of software development technology.

The course’s added value is to create and develop an ability to analyze common problems in an algorithmic sense, and to see them as an input for computer processing. Moreover, some basic network programming techniques are presented, opening the path to the world of the Internet-Of-Things.
