Raspberry Pi Course Spurs Next Generation of Python Developers

Raspberry Pi's "Introduction to Python" project path focuses on creating digital visuals using the Python p5 library.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has launched a new Introduction to Python project path designed to teach kids the basics of Python programming and help them get assimilated with core programming concepts through hands-on projects.

Aimed at beginners and more experienced young programmers, the course takes learners through a number of guided tasks and more independent projects. The work is designed to get young coders familiar with underlying principles such as syntax, using variables, and defining functions.

Python is an ideal language for young and novice coders because its syntax is similar to the English language, according to Raspberry Pi learning manager Rebecca Franks.
