Python Programming - A Media Approach
No prior programming knowledge is required to take and complete this course.
This course covers a programming language known as Jython, which is a Java version of Python. It has a strong focus on media manipulation however, you can go from this course into programming in Python because all of the same concepts will apply.
Do you wish you could make a popular app like Instagram, Dropbox, Spotify, or even Google? What do these all have in common you might ask, they are at their roots built with Python. Python is a powerful, multi-use programming language that can be implemented in app development, web development, or even in a desktop environment. All of the basic functions required to get started on YOUR journey to making the next great app, in one location.
What is Jython?
Jython is a form of the programming language Python, built and compiled in the Java environment(yes, the web development Java) but still using all of the basic Python functions. It’s focus is to introduce these functions in an engaging, interactive form of media manipulation. Taking pictures and changing their colors, speeding up a sound file, flipping a picture upside-down and adding text to it, all of this and more can be accomplished with Jython.
