Hi there! In Python Immersive, Practical Programming does not teach how to use frameworks, they have another course for that.

I've really enjoyed this course. I've taken online courses but now I understand fundamentals and can right my own scripts. A lot of personal attention. Small group.

Overall the course is good. If there is anything that stops me from giving 5 stars, it is that One young instructor sometimes needed to be more prepared before classes. As he spent time programming on-the-fly, time was wasted that could have been used to teach and train me better.
