The main goal of this workshop was to introduce to Faculty of Computing students, especially Software Engineering students, to the concept and coding of Python.
The most popular and widely used programming language is Python. Python is appropriate for beginners because it is simple to pick up and learn. Python can be used in a variety of case studies, from simple calculations to machine learning. The use of Python is expanding day by day in the industry. This event was designed to encourage participants to explore the Python language and practice themselves with the given examples to link participants with the real-world environment.
