Designed for those with no experience in computer science, this introductory course will explore the world of programming by teaching students the fundamental syntax and meaning of the Python programming language. The course will introduce the general theories of computer programming and explore basic Python concepts. We will cover various concepts including control structures, repetitive tasks/loops, arrays, lists, and functions through a pragmatic course project. Finally, students will apply these skills to a budget-related project in which they will process a CSV file and generate proper categorization and totaling. By the end of the course, students will be able to write and build a program using Python and figure out how to solve a problem in a programmatic way.

No programming experience is necessary. Students must be familiar with computer basics.
