Kids Who Code: Programming with Python

Vogel Prep’s Programming Course Gives Phoenix Area Students a Competitive Edge for the Future

Long gone are the days when Phoenix area high school students just needed to maintain a high GPA and diverse set of extracurricular activities in order to gain acceptance to their choice of college. But these days, with competitive college admissions, ambitious students are going to extra lengths to differentiate themselves in an increasingly large and qualified applicant pool. Coding is one of the most exciting areas that successful Phoenix area students are taking an interest in. Proficiency in coding—computer programming—is a coveted skill, not only by colleges and universities, but by hiring managers also, as students graduate from college and enter the job market.  After all, we have a larger tech market than ever before, so Phoenix area students planning for success in college and beyond are wise to learn coding through a course such as Vogel Tutoring & Test Prep’s Programming with Python Course this summer.   

In fact, tech giants like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and others have been lobbying for public schools to offer computer programming courses as a standard part of their curriculum. With smart phones, computers, and the Internet so ingrained in our society, it’s no wonder that technical proficiency in these areas not only boost a Phoenix student’s admissions standing, but potentially prepare him or her for a job in one of the world’s most competitive and influential sectors.

So, what exactly is computer programming? Coding is essentially the ability to write computer programs. Python, for instance, is a computer programming language that can be used for a wide variety of purposes and tasks. Python is utilized in the testing of processing chips—used in virtually all computers and smart phones—as well as in building and running platforms like Instagram, or even in the creation of video games. Beyond the basic ability to construct a website, learning to code with Python also allows students to grow technical ability, creative problem solving skills, and imagination. As billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates puts it, “Learning to write programs stretches your mind, and helps you think better, creates a way of thinking about things that I think is helpful in all domains.”

One particular benefit of learning Python, compared to other programming languages, is that it blends straightforward, easy-to-understand syntax with high-performing principles. In other words, it’s easy to get the hang of, but it can be used to build and complete complex computing tasks. Indeed, the beauty of learning to code is threefold: it has professional utility, makes for an impressive résumé line, and can be enjoyed as a hobby no matter what your other interests may be.
