In this episode, Daniel and Justin give a general overview of what to expect in the upcoming Python programming series. They cover topics like who is the intended audience, what the scope of the series will cover, and what are some specific topics that will be addressed.
In this segment we're gonna give you a
general overview of what to expect in our
upcoming Python Programming series,
starring my good friend here, Mr.
Justin, Python programming, you've had a
little experience with that in your past,
so we're glad to have you onboard.
First let's start here.
What is the intended audience for
this Python series?
>> I think Python is a great language for
all beginners, but I've kind of tried
to think about what would help me the most
if I had a diversity of backgrounds.
So say I'm a sys admin, but I don't really
know a lot about hardcore programming.
That audience would benefit,
as well as someone who just wants to get
started with Python to play around with.
So I've tried to make it practical
while teaching beginner-level concepts,
So what would you say is a good overview
of what to expect in our Python series?
>> So in Python, really,
we gotta get started, we gotta get set up.
How do we get set up?
How do we run these reliably and
kind of reproducibly?
And then we're gonna spend some time
addressing some of this basic fundamental
understanding of Python,
like what are lists, what are strings?
What are all of these words
you're saying that I don't know?
And then finally we're gonna culminate
in putting all of these new concepts,
like functions and data types, and
write something that I'm pretty
sure will blow your mind.
>> Sounds awesome.
Now what are some specific topics
that we're gonna dive into,
just to whet the appetite of someone
that might be interested in this?
>> So how do I import new functionality
from the standard library?
Well, there's very
specific ways to do that.
Or how do I write my
own functions if I want
to encapsulate all of these
new things I've learned?
How do I write my own functions?
In particular, how do I write those
functions to make use of lists,
which are collections of whatever you want
them to be, so I can stream through those?
Does that answer your question?
that's exactly what we're looking for.
We just wanted to know some of the details
of our Python course for our viewers out
there that might be going, hm, this looks
interesting, but tell me more about that.
So thank you so much for
joining us today and
explaining some of what our viewers out
there might expect from this course.
If it sounds like something that you might
be interested in, that might be helpful
for you, then we look forward to
seeing you in those upcoming episodes.
