Python code frequently has to reference external files for data, and doing so is an important part of modern Python development. This class will include an introduction to interacting with files in Python, common file types (CSV, JSON, and text), and best practices for doing so.
This class will cover topics including:
Basic Python methods for file I/O
CSV, JSON and text file overview
Common use cases for using Python to interact with each file type
This class is geared for those without strong programming experience, though some experience might help. Those coming from other languages to Python may also find value in this class, but it's primarily targeted for beginners who are interested to learn more about the fundamentals of Python and programming.
