Significant progress has been seen in the skills the participants have acquired during these past 7 days of the National Pre-Tech training program. On the 8th day, the ladies were introduced to the python programming language.
Python is a general-purpose programming language which helps programmers write clear and logical code for small and large-scale projects. Their trainer emphasized on the fact that python could run on all operating systems and many other reasons why the programming language was highly recommended. These included its ability to handle all ranges of work effectively, from simple to complex and how easy its syntax is.
The students were exposed to areas of study, where python could be applied.
These included Server-side Web Development, Mathematics, Robotics and Artificial intelligence (AI) among many others. Software engineer, Data Analyst, Web Developer and AI/Robotics engineer were mentioned as career paths available for a python programmer.
Participants installed python on their laptops and executed their first python program. Related concepts such as data types, indentation, functions, variables were made clear to the ladies. The trainer made a conscious effort to explain how some of these concepts were applied differently in other programming languages.
Our CEO, Mrs Regina Honu visited Dansyn Innovation Social Organization-Dansyn ISO and Northern Innovation Lab to interact with the leaders, trainers and participants. She also observed the class and shared her entrepreneurial journey, the benefits of learning to create technology, how to overcome your fears and make an impact.
After lunch, there was a recap of all that had been studied that day and then, the participants wrote different functions to solve simple mathematical problems.
This ended the session for the day. On the 9th, the women will continue to explore more on the Python programming language. #PretechDiaries #GhanaTechLab
