Programming is fun and profitable. Learning to become a software developer should be equally fun! This course will teach you everything you need to know about the Python language all the while building interesting and engaging applications.
The goal of this online video course is to teach you the Python programming language.
Source code and course github repository
It assumes you have just a small amount of programming experience (e.g. you know what a variable, a function, and a loop are in some language). But otherwise, it is a from the ground up, comprehensive introduction to the Python programming language.
Most courses focus on teaching you hundreds of details and leave putting them together as an exercise for the student. My course is different.
You will learn all the basics, yes. But you will learn them while building 10 stand alone applications. You will see each application built from the ground up in live demos. When we hit new topics (functions for example), we will pause, discuss them, and return to our application we are building.
This way you will continuously be "putting the pieces together". You don’t have to wade through many small details before making sense of Python. It starts right from the beginning and grows from there.
Who is this course for?
It’s for people who have some programming / scripting experience and want to improve their Python knowledge. Maybe you
Used Python casually, but you want to learn it comprehensively
Know part of the language well, but want rounded knowledge
Want to write more Pythonic code (iterators, comprehensions, etc.)
Are a scientist looking to use the Python data tools and need a foundation
Are a college student and want more than your university course offers
Considering becoming a software developer
If any of those descriptions fit you, then you’re my target student. I wrote this course for you.
If you’ve been doing Python for years, maybe this isn’t your course. Don’t worry though. The very next set of courses I’m starting after this one will be building on this knowledge and diving into advanced areas such as web development, relational and nosql database programming, web service programming, and more.
