Python: Getting Started
Python is very simple, yet incredibly powerful programming language. You can use it for writing web and desktop apps, scripts, and more. This course teaches you the basics of Python syntax, functions, creating console and web apps, and distribution.
What you'll learn
Hello, and welcome to Python: Getting Started, part of the Python Learning Path here at Pluralsight. My name is Bo Milanovich, and I’m looking forward to helping you learn this powerful and versatile language.
Along the way, you’re going to be learning about things like:
- how to create a console application and how to convert it into a web app
- how to create executable files and an installation wizard from your Python app
This is a beginner-friendly course, but you’ll want to make sure you’re already up to speed on programming basics, such as what a function does and what a variable is.
So if you’re ready to get going, Python: Getting Started is waiting for you. Thanks again for visiting me here at Pluralsight!
