Introduction to Python

With the introduction of the new curriculum all students are to learn programming. Python is a great progression from scratch and is freely available. Works well on a PC / Mac or Raspberry  pi.

  • Getting and installing Python.
  • Accessing the Python documentation
  • Python’s strengths.
  • Executing Python programs from the command line
  • Creating and executing Python programs using IDLE
  • Getting started basic commands.
