Scripting with Python
The Python programming language is extremely powerful and commonly used to automate time-intensive activities/tasks for users. This makes Python a good skill to have for any job that requires automation to replace data in a file, rename multiple file names, update Excel spreadsheets or mine data from web pages. Python can be used as a steppingstone to enter some of the most exciting industries including data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, software or full-stack development.
Learning the fundamentals of programming concepts with Python includes data types, variables, decision statements, loops, functions and file handling. By developing simple scripts, you can understand how to use common scripting language constructs including lists, literals and regular expressions to build useful applications.
