Description: An introduction to computer programming designed to give an overview of programming and algorithmic topics commonly seen in Data Science, such creating and manipulating data structures, graphs, dynamic programming, sorting and heuristic search algorithms. Students learn how to think about these problems and how to structure effective solutions to them using Python. No prior programming knowledge is required or expected.
