Welcome to a brand new online course where you can learn hands-on Python programming using Raspberry Pi 4.
We will first begin with the essential steps to set up the Raspberry Pi, starting from the important aspects of SSH and WIFI configuration and then burning the operating system to the SD card. You will then learn how to transform your Raspberry Pi into a full-fledged computer using all the peripherals. Upon completing this, you will learn how to access the terminal using the IP Scanner tool and the Putty application, and then we will go ahead with the Virtual Network Computing to access the graphical user interface of the Pi.
After completing the first phase of our journey, we will now turn our attention towards Python programming. I will guide you through the process of setting up your programming environment using the official Python IDE and Thonny on your Raspberry Pi. But here is the best part, even if you don’t have a Raspberry Pi, you can still join the course! We understand that everyone has different setups, so we will also demonstrate how you can work on other platforms such as Windows, Mac, and Linux. No matter what device you have, we have got you covered.
Whether you’re a beginner or have some coding experience, we’ll start from scratch and progress step by step, ensuring everyone can follow along. We will cover all the essential topics that form the foundation of Python. What sets this course apart is the inclusion of practical examples after each theoretical concept, allowing you to witness how these concepts are applied in real-world scenarios. This hands-on approach will deepen your understanding and enable you to effectively implement logic through programming.
Upon mastering Python, you will be presented with exciting opportunities to apply and demonstrate your newly acquired knowledge. You will develop 2 projects. In the first project, you will be creating a thrilling number-guessing game that will challenge your coding skills and ignite your logical thinking abilities. Whereas in the second project, you will be creating a dynamic snake game that will unleash your creativity and expand your problem-solving abilities.
I have always been a firm believer in learning by doing, and in this course, you will learn what you need to know by hands-on experience. You don’t need any special knowledge except basic computer skills to get started with this course. Every one of you comes from a different background and hence the course is crafted from basic to advanced level with minute detail in every lecture.
Here are two main reasons, why you should take this course :-
#1 This course is carefully crafted to deliver both theoretical knowledge and practical application. Each topic is thoughtfully explained with real-world examples, enabling you to learn and practice simultaneously.
#2 Upon completing each section, you will encounter a series of coding exercises and assignments specifically tailored to reinforce your understanding of the topic at hand. These exercises will require you to apply your own logical thinking to solve problems, thereby enhancing your problem-solving skills and developing a systematic approach to tackle such challenges.
To make the learning curve easier, the entire course has been divided into 10 sections. Let’s take a look at the major topics that will be covered in each section of the course.
- In the first section, we will delve into the fundamental concepts of Python programming and explore the essential software and hardware requirements necessary to successfully complete this course.
- In the second section, we will dive into the world of Raspberry Pi. We will begin by exploring the configuration of SSH and WIFI and then go through the process of burning the OS onto the SD card. With the bootable SD card and other peripherals, we will transform Raspberry Pi into a full-fledged computer. Next, we will explore a unique scenario where the availability of an external monitor is limited. So to solve this issue, we will learn the process of remotely accessing the terminal of Raspberry Pi by utilizing the concept of IP scanning and SSH. This method allows for seamless connectivity and control over the Raspberry Pi, even without the need for a physical monitor.
- Building upon this knowledge, we will venture into the realm of virtual network computing, which will allow us to seamlessly interact with Raspberry Pi’s graphical user interface. Additionally, we will familiarize ourselves with the official Python IDE, Thonny, and its installation process. And in case, you don’t have a Raspberry Pi, we will guide you through setting up the IDE on Windows, Mac, and Linux machines.
- In the upcoming 3rd section, we will start learning Python programming. This phase will take us on a comprehensive journey through essential topics such as Python syntax, variables, constants, and literals. We will also explore various data types, including numbers, and various ways of string formatting along with important string methods. By the end of this section, you will have a solid foundation in these fundamental concepts of Python programming.
- In the 4th section of the course, we will learn about operators in Python. In this phase, we will explore a variety of operators, including arithmetic, assignment, comparison, and logical operators. Additionally, we will also go through identity, membership, bitwise, and boolean operators. By the end of this section, you will have a comprehensive understanding of how to effectively utilize these operators to manipulate and evaluate data in Python.
- In the 5th section, we will go ahead with Lists and Tuples. We will cover accessing, adding, removing, and updating elements in lists and tuples. But that’s not all! We’ll also get to know about nested lists and tuples, unlocking new possibilities for organizing and manipulating data. By the time you complete this section, you’ll possess a deep understanding of lists, tuples, and their advanced functionalities.
- The 6th section begins with Sets and Dictionaries. Here, we will explore the creation, access, removal, joining, and copying of sets and dictionaries in Python. Apart from that, we will also see how to implement nested sets and dictionaries, unraveling their hidden potential and mastering the important methods associated with these powerful data structures. By the time we complete this section, you’ll have a solid grasp of sets, dictionaries, and their advanced features, empowering you to manipulate and organize data in efficient and effective ways.
- In the 7th section, we will unlock the true power of Conditional and Control Flow Statements. Here, we will go through “if” statements, “if-else” statements, and the versatile “if-elif-else” statements. But that’s not all! We will also master the art of control flow with the mighty For and While loops, along with the invaluable break, pass, and continue statements. By the time we conquer this section, You will gain the expertise to effectively handle decision making and confidently exercise control over program execution.
- In the 8th section, we will get to know about functions. Get prepared to unlock the true potential of code organization and reusability as we explore the art of creating and calling functions. Witness the magic of declaring functions with input parameters, allowing for dynamic and flexible behavior. And fear not, for we shall master the art of passing arguments to functions, empowering our code with the ability to adapt and respond to different scenarios. By the end of this section, you will harness the power of functions and utilize their efficiency and elegance to create cleaner and modular code.
