Learn Coding: C++ & Python Vol 35
Learning to code is one of the most useful skills you can adopt in this ever-changing digital world. Discovering how code influences, drives, and controls every aspect of computing can lead to improved job prospects, mastery of IT, and a better understanding of how our devices communicate with the wider world.
Python can be found in the background of websites, helping to control everything from the Internet, through to NASA, on-board the ISS. It’s a simple, but extremely eff ective, programming language and you can learn the basics in a matter of hours. Master Python, and you hold the future of AI, Big Data, and the Internet in your hands.
Within, you will learn how to use the core selection of Python’s many commands and routines to create your own code that you can expand and improve on for use in the real world. We look at using variables, user input, loops, Python Modules, and even Python graphics.
Windows, macOS, Linux, PlayStation and Xbox games, they all have one thing in common: at the heart of each lies C++ code. C++ is powerful, fast, and can control some of the more complex elements of technology. It’s little wonder that C++ is one of the most sought-after programming languages in the job market. Start your C++ adventure here, and see where it leads.
