Course contents

When we speak about Python we should speak about two key features of that programming language - its power and beauty. The power of Python is that it represents a high-level programing language which can be used for general purposes (like Delphi, Perl or the family of C based languages C, C++, C# etc.). But in the meantime, the beauty of Python is that it's less complicated for understanding and is a more intuitive programming language. The aim of the course is to introduce the features of coding in Python, which can be used in artistic practice.
