Welcome to the LearnStreet beginner course on Python. The Python programming language is a high level programming language that is used in a wide spectrum of applications — from web design and game programming to scientific research. Its simple and flexible syntax makes it easy to learn and understand, but still powerful and expressive. By the end of this course, you’ll have a solid understanding of the Python language, and be able to complete some cool projects in the Code Garage section. Keep in mind this course uses Python version 2.7. Python 2.7 is more widely used in industry, and therefore more valuable to learn. The most recent version is 3.2, which has some key syntax differences. We have designed this course for people who have no prior programming background. In this course, we will teach you some fundamental programming concepts through Python. Throughout this course, you will write code to apply what you’ve learned to solve programming problems. In addition to the instructional course content, you will be working towards building an event planner in Python which will be fully functional and ready for you to use by the end of this course. Now, click on the big black box – the Python interpreter – below this to start coding away!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
