A general introduction to programming using the Python programming language. Explore key components of problem solving using logically ordered steps and apply them to problems across disciplines. Gain a solid foundation in algorithmic design of programs and implementing them in Python.
Python Coding Winter School is targeting high school students who are interested in Computer Science and coding. Attending such a program not only provides students personal enrichment, but also helps to develop ‘algorithmic thinking’ to handle significant challenges. The Winter Program focuses on teaching the creation of computer algorithm development, numerical computations, data visualization and data analysis using Python.
Buket Yüksel is a Python instructor at Koç University. She has more than 10 years of experience in Python programming language and used it on her research during her Ph.D as well. She has been teaching UNIV199 (Python) Course for 3 semesters at Koç University. Her current research is about Object Tracking using Deep Learning. Her research interests include Neural Networks and Reinforcement learning.
Another aim of this course is to give students the means of breaking down complex problems to smaller parts and solving the overall problem by finding solutions to the small components.
