Skip to 0 minutes and 2 secondsHi. I'm Martin. And welcome to Programming 101. Over the next four weeks, you'll get an introduction to programming concepts and write your first code in the programming language Python. The activities throughout this course will teach you the basic rules and show you how to avoid the most common errors. If you're an educator with students of your own, you can also reuse these activities in your own lessons. So join us for the next four weeks and take your first steps to becoming a computer programmer.
