Python Fundamentals

About this Course

This is a set of practice exercises for extending and strengthening coding skills in Python. Many of the exercises are set up as assignments on a corresponding GitHub Classroom page and you'll need a GitHub account to use them. Installing GitHub Desktop will also be necessary to manage the assignments unless you already have another version of Git on your computer. Finally, some of the assignments will use data files available from a Google Drive folder listed in the resources section at the bottom of the page.
