Introduction to Python
Course descriptionPython is one of the most widely-used programming languages among data scientists. This course will show you the technical advantages it has over other programming languages. You will start working with its modules for scientific computing, and you will begin to understand why these functionalities make Python the preferred choice in finance, econometrics, economics, data science, and machine learning.
Basic Python Syntax
If you want to master Python programming, there is no way around learning basic Python syntax operators first. In this section, we will cover the double equality sign, reassigning of values, adding comments, line continuation, indexing elements, arithmetic operators, comparison operators, logical operators, and identity operators.
More on Operators
In this section, we will explore more operators used in Python. More precisely, we will first learn about the comparison operators, which will obviously allow you to compare different values in your code. Then, we will focus on the logical operators AND, OR, and NOT. We will conclude by a few examples with the identity operators IS and IS NOT.
