Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 11th and 12th 2014
I run my own retail software company for past 15 years, and feel its time to give back to the society. I also hold double major in the field of Computer Science from Sydney, Australia.
Python is intended to be a highly readable programming language. It is
designed to have an uncluttered visual layout, frequently using
English keywords where other languages use punctuation. This is
two-hour course on introduction to Python, wherein students will learn
basics of programming in python, Python Shell, input/output
statements, data types, and conditional executions. Towards the end of
the lecture, we will do few exercises and kindle interest in kids who
are just starting programming. Students are expected to carry a
laptop/Mac, and download instructions for Python and IDE (PyCharm)
will be shared before the class.
6+ grader is minimum requirement.
This session will cover Python types such as List, Tuples, and
Dictionary. We will delve into these topics in much detail through
examples and hands-on exercise. We will also design and develop
working Python game “Hangman”. We will cover topics of methods in
Python as well Graphical User Interface (GUI) using tkinter (an
in-built API in Python). We will design and built small applications,
such as temp. and length converters to give a start.
6+ grader is required to attend this session.
