Fall 2015

  Hey everyone, Lars Sorensen here.  In the fall of 2015 I taught Python Methodologies for Data Science at the Graduate School of New Brunswick at Rutgers University.  That is a complicated name for what was basically an intro to programming class.  In the first half of the class we went over the basics of imperative Python.  In the second half of the class we touched upon topics like Computer Science features (sorting, searching, recursion), Object Orientation and Data Structures.  

  Long story short, a buddy of mine wanted to learn Python on the sly.  I told him that most of my resources for class were in the cloud and that he was welcome to them.  I also had a good amount of my students express an interest in having a resource page so they could go back and look at their slides and videos after class was over. Sometimes SAKAI sites die and they wanted one page where they could come and see all of the resources as they were presented to them in class.  And so this page was born.  This was the class as it was in the Fall of 2015 when I first designed it.  

  If you are taking PMDS now and think you've just stumbled onto a pot of gold, you have.  But not for the reasons you think. I change all my quizzes and do new videos every semester, so if you came here to do a bit o cheatin then you're outta luck.  On the other hand, if you're here for extra work or to review resources before they are released then have at it.  The more time on task the more you will learn and retain.  Gobble it all up.

Nuff said.  Hope you all enjoy.
