Day 1: Python Basics
You will explore various data types such as strings, numbers and Boolean, and also learn how to organize these data into different structures such as list, set and dictionary. After you get familiar with basic data types and structures, we will show you how to access and manipulate these data/data structure conditionally by using different control flows such as if-else and loops.
- Python environments
- data structures
- control flow
Day 2: Working with Data Sources
You will learn how to write and save some reusable functions which can take inputs from command line/files, perform calculations and return calculated results as an output.
