Python 101 (Part 1 of 2)
This 2 part tutorial presents the basics of Python to beginning and intermediate programmers. It pairs well with Python 102 which follows a similar outline but goes much deeper. Rather than starting with "Hello, world!", we use the interactive Python interpreter to get hands-on familiarity with much of core Python before covering blocks and scripts. The tutorial is divided into short sections, each with presentation and exercises, to quickly cover lots of ground. Advanced topics are introduced throughout and covered in "extra credit" exercises such that more advanced participants can learn at their own pace.
