>> Hello everyone and welcome back to Intro
00:00
to Python here on Cybrary on Demand.
00:00
If you're watching this video then I have great news
00:00
and that great news is that you've beaten module 1.
00:00
You're now in module 2 which is the second half,
00:00
the homestretch of the Intro to Python course.
00:00
Because of the fact that there are people who
00:00
will have skipped over here just to focus
00:00
on the Python deep dives and not really worry about
00:00
the initial logic and computer science information,
00:00
I'm going to go ahead and do
00:00
a couple of things over again.
00:00
I'm going to reintroduce myself.
00:00
Again, I'm Joe Perry.
00:00
I'm the Director of Research here at Cybrary.
00:00
I have been a developer,
00:00
I'm a security researcher.
00:00
I'm a jack of basically all cybersecurity trades.
00:00
If it is a field of cybersecurity or most of IT,
00:00
I've done it at least once and
00:00
for a lot of it I've done it a couple of times.
00:00
I've worked in forensics.
00:00
I've been Red Team operator, I've pen tested.
00:00
If you can do it in
00:00
cybersecurity, I've at least tried it.
00:00
I spend a lot of my time in the federal government.
00:00
I worked with the Department of Defense,
00:00
the intelligence community,
00:00
just all over the federal government.
00:00
I've been fortunate that I've gotten to
00:00
work with a lot of different organizations and
00:00
different teams and just get to be
00:00
a part of a lot of really spectacular projects.
00:00
You can find me on Twitter @JosephRPerryIV1.
00:00
You can also find that
00:00
with the handle CripplingSecurities.
00:00
Then of course you can find me on LinkedIn.
00:00
That link that you can see there
00:00
will be included in these slides,
00:00
which will be part of the supplemental
00:00
materials for this class.
00:00
Module 2. What are we going to be doing here?
00:00
Now you'll recognize this slide if
00:00
you saw our intro videos.
00:00
This is all we're going to be focusing here on module 2.
00:00
It's going to be data types and logic.
00:00
We're going to talk about If, Elif and Else,
00:00
which we've talked about in our previous
00:00
module in an abstract way.
00:00
But here we're going to apply that into Python.
00:00
We're going to talk about For and Else in
00:00
Python and the special
00:00
relationship they have between them.
00:00
We're going to discuss While loops in Python.
00:00
We're going to learn about how to use logical escapes,
00:00
which are some pretty useful Python keywords for
00:00
short-circuiting some of those logical loops
00:00
and speeding up your programs.
00:00
We're going to talk about Python functions,
00:00
strings. We're going to do a deep dive.
00:00
We're going to learn about the methods of strings,
00:00
how to find new methods,
00:00
how to apply a couple of them,
00:00
and more than anything,
00:00
learn how to learn more about these things.
00:00
Strings, numbers, lists, and dictionaries.
00:00
We're going to spend a bunch of time on all of those.
00:00
Then of course we have a lab that will come
00:00
up after this that will give you
00:00
the chance to play with them.
00:00
I'm very, very excited to have you all here.
00:00
Again, this is one of my favorite things in
00:00
the entire world to be able to do.
00:00
I really hope that
00:00
you're enjoying yourself and that you're
00:00
finding this course instructive so far.
00:00
I think you're really going to enjoy module 2.
00:00
There is a lot more programming and a lot less slideshow.
00:00
As always, I'm your instructor Joe Perry.
00:00
Thank you so much for watching Intro to
00:00
Python here on Cybrary on Demand.
