This course builds upon the fundamentals of Python taught in Introduction to Python. You’ll learn to repeat a process using “for loops”; how to use conditional statements such as if, else, and elif; how to employ logical operators and comparison operators. You’ll also learn how to create Python dictionaries, which are important data structures in Python that help gather elements for identification using a key. Finally, you’ll build frequency tables, which help to display the frequencies of different categories (particularly useful for understanding the distribution of values in a dataset).
Best of all, you’ll learn by doing — you’ll practice and get feedback directly in the browser. You’ll apply your skills to several guided projects involving realistic business scenarios to build your portfolio and prepare for your next interview.
