    Modules

    In this chapter, you will be introduced to our programming
    environment, the Data Lab, for the first time and run your
    first commands.
    • Represent data as numbers or text in Python
    • Store data in variables and lists
    • Create, access and modify lists
    • Read error messages and use them productively
    In this chapter, you’ll learn important basic programming skills.
    • Conditions (if-else logic)
    • Using standard Python functions such as len() orsum()
    • Methods for text and list data types, e.g. str.format() or list.append()
    • Defining truth values with comparison operators and
    representing them as bool
    • Two-hour mini-project with car data to apply the skills you have learned
    In the third chapter, participants polish their programming skills
    in Python and acquire advanced coding techniques. You will also
    combine individual programming elements such as conditions, loops
    and functions together within programs.
    • Writing for loops and combining them with conditions
    • Writing functions and checking their performance
    • Importing Python modules
    • Importing data as plain text and exporting it again
    • One-hour mini-project using telephone data to apply
    the skills you have learnedlls
    In this chapter, you will strengthen what you have learned in the
    previous chapters, and learn the aspects listed below. This is all good
    preparation for the final project at the end of the chapter.
    • Sets
    • List comprehension
    • Complex data structures
    • NumPy Arrays
    • Four-hour final project on automating work processes
