In this series of 6 Online Sessions, students were taught the syntax and semantics of Python — one of the most rapidly growing programming languages and the second-most-popular language overall.
This course, comprising of five guided sessions was taught at a steady pace for absolute beginners. Students as young as 13 years were encouraged to enroll in this course. There were no prerequisites except having a working personal computer (PC)! The starting date was 20 February 2021.
The instructor is Ms Roop Omar who has a Masters degree in Bioinformatics from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), UK, where she trained in several research-focused areas, making frequent use of programming languages like Java, MATLAB, and PERL, both to conduct her research and fulfill her teaching duties as a Teaching Assistant at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, QMUL. Since then Roop has served in a similar capacity at LUMS where she used PERL and Python both for teaching, at undergraduate and graduate levels and for her research activities. Lately, Roop has also engaged with younger students at various private schools and is looking forward to teaching Python and helping shape the skills of the incoming generation.
