In this course, David Tracy will teach you how to use the Python programming language with Rhino to automate tasks, create complex forms, and simulate physical phenomena. This course will serve as a gentle introduction to programming to unlock capabilities for generative computational design with Rhino, Python, and Grasshopper.
First, you will be introduced to the core concepts of using Python in Rhino, such as drawing shapes with code, transformation, and variables. Then you will learn how to use classes and object oriented programming. Finally, you will learn how to integrate Grasshopper into your Python and Rhino workflow.
When we’re done, you will understand the core concepts of programming with Python, be able to author your own scripts, and create custom components in Grasshopper.

So once you, at first you'll see it, and you'll be like no that doesn't read just like English, but after awhile of getting used to it, you'll see that there is kind of like very easy flowing syntax with the language that almost makes it feel like English. And it's also really powerful. Because of its popularity, there are thousands of libraries that extend the functionality of Python.
