Python is one of the fastest growing programming languages that finds use in data science, web programming, machine learning and general application development. According to the 2019 list in IEEE Spectrum, Python is the world’s best ranked programming language, and the fastest growing, with an explosion of new users and market demand; driven largely by the popularity of the language in the fast-growing field of machine learning, which in turn has been driven by easy-to-use yet capable Python libraries like NumPy, Pandas, and Keras. With data becoming the new oil and the driver of the 4th Industrial Revolution, Python is a must have skill for the modern professional.
Our Python Kickstarter is an 10-week in-depth introduction and immersion into Python 3, taking the learner through the paces from absolute beginner to the confidence level required to apply the gained skills in non-trivial projects.
As part of our R&D for the Python programming language, we at GINI have been working on a version of Python 3.8 that operates with Swahili grammar rather than the standard English grammar. Our students will be able to interact with this project and deepen their understanding of how Python itself works, and by extension understand the way programming languages work. The public repository for this project can be found here.
