This An Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python (Part 1) offered by Coursera in partnership with Rice University is designed to help students with very little or no computing background learn the basics of building simple interactive applications.
Our language of choice, Python, is an easy-to learn, high-level computer language that is used in many of the computational courses offered on Coursera. To make learning Python easy, we have developed a new browser-based programming environment that makes developing interactive applications in Python simple. These applications will involve windows whose contents are graphical and respond to buttons, the keyboard and the mouse.
In part 1 of this course, we will introduce the basic elements of programming (such as expressions, conditionals, and functions) and then use these elements to create simple interactive applications such as a digital stopwatch.
Part 1 of this class will culminate in building a version of the classic arcade game "Pong".
