About this course

Students will take their existing foundation in Python and expand on it by tackling problems in many different domains such as artificial intelligence and web programming. Students planning on taking this course will need to complete and do sufficiently well on the entry test (please contact Focus Learning for more details).

What you'll learn

The course is broken down into 4 distinct units.

  • Unit 1 Artificial Intelligence (8 week): Students will learn about how AI has changed the world and many of its applications across multiple fields. There will be a focus on traditional means to AI via search algorithms such as A* search and how those traditional methods can be used to solve problems. In addition, machine learning and neural networks will be discussed, and students will get the chance to build their own object recognition system.
  • Unit 2 Application Programming Interfaces (4 weeks): Students will learn about APIs and the role they serve in the real world of software engineering. Students will get the chance to learn about and use a variety of different APIs and even learn how to build their own.
  • Unit 3 Databases (2 weeks): This unit focuses on teaching students’ industry standard methods in which data is stored and maintained. Students will learn how to create, manage and manipulate databases using code.
  • Unit 4 Programming on the Web (2 weeks): In this last unit, students will learn the basics of creating and deploying a web application. Along the way students will also learn some CSS, JavaScript and HTML. The course will conclude with a final project where students will design, create and deploy their own simple web application.
