Prerequisites

This course is intended for students who need to become familiar with Python before progressing to one of the Cloudera developer classes. Familiarity with Java programming, object-oriented programming, and basic computer science concepts is suggested in order to get the most out of this course. However, the class does not refer specifically to big data, data analytics, Cloudera software, or Hadoop, so no experience in those areas is needed.
