This course is designed to help students with very little or no computing
background learn the basics of building simple interactive applications.
Our language of choice, Python, is an easy-to learn, high-level computer
language that is used in many of the computational courses offered on Coursera.
To make learning Python easy, we have developed a new browser-based programming
environment that makes developing interactive applications in Python simple.
These applications will involve windows whose contents are graphical
and respond to buttons, the keyboard and the mouse.
The primary method for learning the course material will be to work through
multiple "mini-projects" in Python. To make this class enjoyable,
these projects will include building fun games such as Pong, Blackjack,
and Asteroids. When you’ve finished our course, we can’t promise
that you will be a professional programmer, but we think that you will
learn a lot about programming in Python and have fun while you’re doing
