Effectively use recursion (loops) and conditional (if/else) programming commands
Absolute beginners welcome! In this guided project, we’ll draw upon 40 years of research into the best ways to introduce new programming concepts in an enjoyable but rapid manner. Many courses with titles like "Python for Beginners" really mean “Python for people who know other programming languages but are beginners at Python." This guided project will include introductory programming activities that will provide beginners the best possible foundation to continue onto other courses to learn Python programming. Note: discussion forums in guided projects such as this one are not monitored or supported by Coursera staff or instructors.
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:
Paint grid squares using a visual programming environment (Concepts)
Use loops and conditionals within a visual programming environment (Concepts)
Debugging: knowing what to do when things go wrong (Skills)
Use loops and conditionals in a professional coding tool (Skills)
Your workspace is a cloud desktop right in your browser, no download required
In a split-screen video, your instructor guides you step-by-step
it is just right for beginners who have no knowledge of python.I myself had little bit of knowledge in C++ and thus helped me to understand the functions in a better way.
Very basic. Excellent for someone on their first day.
