The Nevada County Tech Connection is offering a free introductory course in Python programming this winter! Learn a foundational programming language underpinning the modern web. Whether you are a high school or college student or a full time worker seeking to expand your skill set, this course will be a valuable resource. 

This course is an introduction to the programming language that’s used by software engineers, analysts, data scientists, machine learning engineers, and web developers, to name a few.  The applications are endless - robotics, AI, natural language processing, big data, etc.

You can start programming with Python quickly because it’s easy to learn, readable, and runs on almost any computer.  

Python is popular!  As the world’s fastest growing language, it has replaced Java as the most popular programming language being taught at colleges and universities.

Many businesses, large and small are run with Python.  In fact, it’s been an important part of Google since the company’s beginning.  Google has contributed many modules that are free for anyone to use. That means you don’t have to invent everything yourself.
