Teaching Python at FAU a 2nd time0 Comments
A year after my first lectures for Dr. Huang’s Programming Languages class, I’m glad to have been asked to lecture again.
If you’re in the class, I hope you enjoy the lectures and learn a lot from them. Hopefully, you’ll learn enough Python so you know how and when to use it.
If you’re not in the class, and looking to learn python, I hope my slides and assigments help you get started. There are so many better internet resources out there than these slides that I tried to link to at the bottom of those post.
Assignment 0 is here: https://gist.github.com/cmpis/a7066e1089abfee202dd
You can download Python from https://www.python.org/downloads/

- for and while loops
- Lists and tuples

Extras and guides
- Hitchker’s Guide to Python
- A guide by pythonistas to help you navigate using and learning python
- Python 3 docs: https://docs.python.org/3/
- Flask docs: http://flask.pocoo.org/docs/0.10/
- Look at: Routing and rendering templates in Quickstart
- Jinja2 docs: http://jinja.pocoo.org/docs/dev/templates/
- Don’t worry about “API docs”. Focus on these so you can make your HTML easier.
As I said in class: Please feel free to ask questions
