Abstract

The Python programming language is one of the easiest to learn and most popular programming languages. The aim of the course is to study the basic constructions of the Python language, which will be useful in solving a wide range of problems - from data analysis to the development of new software products. As a result of mastering the course, students will learn how to process and store numbers, texts and their sets, master the standard library of the Python language and will be able to automate tasks for collecting and processing data. The course provides the necessary foundation for mastering more specialized areas of use of the Python language, such as machine learning, statistical data processing, data visualization, and many others. Also, students will get acquainted with the basics of various programming paradigms: procedural, functional and object-oriented programming.
