Your car, your phone, your TV and most likely your coffeemaker, all have software inside. Software is everywhere in our lives. Programming gives you the ability to make that software work for you. At a very minimum, knowledge of programming will make it easier for you to interact with this increasingly computerized world.

This course is the first step to a deeper understanding of this computerized world. During this course, you will learn basic programming concepts and skills while utilizing python to develop a simulation application. This course is targeted for those with no programming experience but will providing usefulness to those with experience in other languages. This course is both an introduction
to programming and to the Python language.

Class Project: The final project for this course will be to create a Python application containing all the programming concepts learned during the Bootcamp.  This application will be a Dice Simulation, capable of rolling any number of dice, with any number of sides, at a specified amount of times, and display the results to the user.
