Python is an open-source programming language first released in 1991 by Guido van Rossum, focused on easily understandable code for all purposes. Due to this focus on readability, Python makes a great choice as a first programming language. Not only is it easy to learn, but Python is used in everything from web servers to machine learning and data analytics. Additionally, its extensive amount of libraries makes implementing structures easy.
Overall, Python is a potently flexible language that enables its users to complete complex projects simply and quickly.
Tech Kits are part of the walk-in service provided by OPIM Innovate. There are three levels of difficulty meant for different users and their experience with the different technologies. Many of the Tech Kits build off each other as you progress.
