Python is a popular widely used general-purpose, high-level programming language. Its design
philosophy emphasizes code readability, and its syntax allows programmers to express concepts
in fewer lines of code than would be possible in languages such as C++ or Java. The language
provides constructs intended to enable clear programs on both a small and large scale.
The course leads the students from the basics of writing and running Python scripts to more
advanced features such as file operation, regular expressions, working with binary
data and using the extensive functionality of python modules. Extra emphasis is
placed on features unique to python such as tuples, array slices and output formatting.
