What you'll learn in this python class:

Our Python Foundation course provides an introduction to software engineering in the Python programming language.  Students with no experience will go from zero to understanding the core concepts of coding.


Whether or not you continue in Python, this course focuses on fundamental topics shared by nearly every programming language. It is a great way to find out if coding is right for you. Even if you have no intention of becoming a programmer, your new expertise will help you perform faster data analysis, communicate more effectively with technology teams and provide a foundational knowledge if you intend to dig deeper in data science.

Those who want to continue learning or launch a software development career may skip the pre-work of our immersive programs. Many take Foundation in order to prepare for these.  The  foundation course cost would apply to tuition.

Course topics

  • Data and datatypes, operations on text and numbers, and text input and output
  • Conditional logic, loops, and error handling
  • Dynamic data structures in Python with lists and dictionaries
  • Structuring programs using functions and working with imported libraries
  • File storage with text files, JSON data files, and comma separated value spreadsheet files
  • Using web interfaces to retrieve and work with real-world data such as live stock prices

Structure and Grading

Each evening session  includes a lecture and in-class time to work on exercises with fellow students and the instructor.  Students are also expected to complete exercises at home.

The course grade is based on two one-hour quizzes and a comprehensive three-hour final assessment.

Students who pass the course receive a certificate. Students who do exceptionally well may exempt the normal entrance requirements for Byte Academy’s immersive coding bootcamp programs. Those who continue to the immersive programs may apply the Foundations course cost to tuition.

Please Note:

  • Computers are needed. Some classes may suggest downloads be done beforehand. All students should bring any other material they may need to learn (pens, paper, etc)
  • Students should bring ID for security
