In Part 1, you learn how to code in the Python 3.5 programming language. Whether you have or have not coded before, you can learn how to use Python. Python is a popular programming language that is useful to know because of its versatility. Python is easy to understand and can be used for many different environments. Cross-platform apps and 3D environments are often made in Python.
We cover basic programming concepts for people who have never programmed before. This course covers key topics in Python and coding in general, including variables, loops, and classes. Moreover, you learn how to handle input, output, and errors.
To learn how to use Python, we create our own functioning Blackjack game! In this game, you receive cards, submit bets, and keep track of your score. By the end of this course, you are able to use the coding knowledge you gained to make your own apps and environments in Python.
In Part 2, you learn how to add unique features to the images in your apps. A CIImage is a representation of an image that can be altered with Core Image filters. These filters allow users to change and interact with images in cool and useful ways. CIImages provide a lot of power that other image types do not.
