CS 41 Code: The Python Programming Language

  • Not Offered

2 units

Satisfactory/No Credit

The fundamentals and contemporary usage of the Python programming language. Primary focus on developing best practices in writing Python and exploring the extensible and unique parts of Python that make it such a powerful language. Topics include: data structures (e.g. lists and dictionaries) and characteristic pythonic conventions such as list comprehensions, anonymous functions, iterables, and powerful built-ins (e.g. map, filter, zip). We will also cover object-oriented design, the standard library, and common third-party packages (e.g. requests, pillow). Time permitting, we will explore modern Python-based web frameworks, data science toolkits (numpy, scipy, pandas) and project distribution. Prerequisite: 106B/X or equivalent. Application required.
