Introduction to Python-3.4.3

IIT Bombay is leading the effort to popularise Python for Scientific Computing in India. This is part of the Free and Open source Software for Science and Engineering Education (https://fossee.in) project, supported by the National Mission on Education through ICT of MHRD.

IIT Bombay is using Spoken Tutorials (https://spoken-tutorial.org) to create learning material for FOSS. This is the main page for the organisation of the scripts required for a standard two day workshop we conduct on "Python for Scientific Computing" spoken tutorials.

The Spoken Tutorial effort for Python-3.4.3 was led by Prof Prabhu Ramchandran from IIT BOMBAY.  He guided the team and vetted the Course Outline.  

Other Contributors : Prathamesh Salunke, Ankit, Nirmala Venkat, Priya and Nancy Varkey.

Learners: High School and UG/PG CSE/CS/IT students and anyone who wishes to learn basic Python programming.
