Scripting with Python (edX)
Explore fundamental programming with hands-on activities that help you build applications using 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.

After taking this class, you will be able to:

Write Python scripts with confidence using best practices and coding standards:

- Evaluate control constructs for program flow

- Write simple scripts

- Format scripts following code standards best practices

Solve problems before developing code by designing programs with pseudocode or flowcharts:

- Write pseudocode to support code design

- Draw a flowchart using design tools to support code design

- Develop user interface for input and output

- Develop script syntax based on a problem statement

Develop fully functional programs using a Python interpreter:

- Determine the difference between an interpreter and a compiler

- Run script syntax with an interpreter

- Write script syntax with an interpreter

- Develop scripts in an integrated development environment (IDE)

- Fix script errors

- Validate user inputs in program development
