## Description

Welcome to Computational Linguist - Beginner course. In this course, you will discover the fundamentals of Python applied to computational linguists, and we will do it from scratch. Almost all the courses you can find on this topic have been made by software engineers. However, this course has been made by a linguist, and it is intended for linguists who have no previous experience in coding or programming languages such as Python. You can also take this course if you are not a linguist, but you want to learn the basics of Python at a beginner level. No previous experience is needed. We will not assume you know any of the concepts before you start, and no advanced software engineer explanations will occur along the course. You will effortlessly learn the basics of Python applied to computational linguistics step by step. By the end of this course, you will be able to analyze novels and any kind of text without having to read them. And this process will only take a few minutes. Thus, you will figure out who is the protagonist of a novel or the most likely topic of a text, no matter how long it is. Our journey will cover:

1. Learn what is a variable

2. Different data types, from basic level to functions and methods

3. Operators

4. Loops

5. File management

6. Avoid errors

7. Exercises

8. Final project
