Transcript

(upbeat music) - [Instructor] Welcome to this first lesson on Python Fundamentals.

This course is the first of a number of courses on how to master the basics of the open source programming language, Python.

In this lesson, we'll set the scene for what we'll be covering in this course.

First, we'll get started with Python. Our main aim will be to justify why it's worth learning, even for people without any coding background. We'll then start exploring basic Python functionality. We'll start with basic calculations and then move on to different ways we can display and store information. Let's stop the lesson here.

In the next lesson, we'll learn about what exactly Python is and why it's popular.
