This course will cover the basics of how to write computer programs in Python. Topics will include data types, loops, strings, lists, methods, graphics and GUI interfaces. Time permitting, we will discuss tools for data analysis. In-class instruction will focus on case studies tackling business applications.
Analytics is the process of getting value out of data. It explains how seemingly mundane data points, when combined, can provide insights into habits, processes, and patterns.
