What is computation? On computation, knowledge, primitives, languages, semantics, and Python basics.
This series is based on the course 6.0001 Introduction to Computer Science and Programming in Python_. _All articles following this series are my personal notes on the lectures.
In our everyday life, computers play a pivotal role. As computers gradually improve and transform into faster and better versions, increasing in complexity and structure, what they do can be broken down into two simple things. And that is (1) performing calculations and (2) storing results.
The billions of calculations per second that computers perform have two kinds, the ones (1) built-in to the languages and the ones (2) you define as a programmer (written programs). Basically, computers only know what you tell them to do, without the help of software engineers and programmers writing beautiful code, computers are just blocks of machines (with the exception of self-conscious AI).
Learn Python Programming
Description We love Programming. Our aim with this course is to create a love for Programming. Python is one of the most popular programming languages. Python offers both object oriented and structural programming features. We take an hands-on...
The most Python programs will consist of three steps — getting input into the program, processing the input in some way, and outputting the results of the processing. I’m going to focus on one part of that step — getting input into a program — by prompting the user to enter some data and then reading the data into the program. This is a mostly straightforward process except for some data conversions that have to occur when you are inputting numbers.
Worried that you have no experience in handling Python? Don’t! Python programming language teaching from Simpliv puts you right there to be able to write Python programs with ease. Place object-oriented programing in a Python context and use Python to perform complicated text processing.
Python is an interpreted, high-level, powerful general-purpose programming language. You may ask, Python’s a snake right? and Why is this programming language named after it?
