Python content

Between the two tracks, Computer Science and Data Science. Is there a difference in the course content for Python? Trying to decide which to take but I am sure I want to learn Python. Is one better than the other in regards to a sound foundation for learning Python 3?

The paths are, I believe, different depending on the topic. So one may cover some things the other doesn’t and vice versa.

If you simply want to learn Python 3, there’s a standalone course for it. You could complete that, and then double back to a specialised path that interests you afterwards wth a working grasp of the fundamentals already under your hat.

That might, in fact, make some of the other material easier. If you already understand Python, say, then you’ll only have to learn the new concepts - for example plotting with matplotlib - rather than learning the programming language and applied concepts in one go.
