Requirements

  • Basic Programming Knowledge: Familiarity with basic programming concepts such as variables, loops, and functions is essential. This course assumes that you have at least beginner-level experience with programming, ideally in Python.
  • Python Fundamentals: You should have a fundamental understanding of Python programming, including data types, control flow, functions, and error handling. If you’re new to Python, consider taking a beginner’s course in Python first.
  • Computer Literacy: Basic computer skills, including installing software, managing files, and using a text editor, are required.
  • Access to a Computer: You will need access to a computer (Windows, Mac, or Linux) as the course involves hands-on programming exercises.
  • Internet Connection: As this is an online course, a stable internet connection is necessary
  • Motivation to Learn: Lastly, a willingness to learn and explore is essential. Expect to encounter challenges, especially if you’re new to programming or databases, and be prepared to spend time outside of the course schedule to practice and reinforce what you’ve learned.
  • While not a strict requirement, familiarity with SQL (Structured Query Language) and basic database concepts would be beneficial but not necessary
