This course will continue the introduction to Python programming that started with Python Programming Essentials. We'll learn about different data representations, including strings, lists, and tuples, that form the core of all Python programs. We will also teach you how to access files, which will allow you to store and retrieve data within your programs. These concepts and skills will help you to manipulate data and write more complex Python programs.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PYTHON DATA REPRESENTATIONS
Another great class from Professors Rixner and Warren. This is a good challenge for my son to learn Python and do well in High School AP CS and beyond.
Excellent course. Gives you an introduction to working with Strings, Lists and Files. And there are lots of exercises to practice.
The project descriptions should be explained in more and in an efficient manner as lot of statement were confusing and was not understood
The project is very interesting. It took me 3 hours to finish but it is worth it. Thank you very much Prof Joe and Prof Scott
