This course is designed with a learn by doing approach that focuses on creation of fully functional scripts. Instead of being stuck learning the details of the programming or scripting language to create the "optimal" solution, we focus on "what works" instead. Once complete, we can then extend what we have to build bigger and better solutions

We will introduce the basic concepts of Python and how it can be used to facilitate cybersecurity initiatives. Additionally, we will introduce other tools such as Microsoft Visual Studio Code, Git and GitHub, various Linux commands, and Postman.
