Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this python class:

In this course, students will be introduced to Python. Python is a great beginner coding language that is quick to learn and extremely versatile. Python can be used to build software, to analyze data, and build amazing websites.

Python has become the most popular coding language learned at educational institutes for several reasons. Firstly, Python developers earn one of the highest average salaries compared to other programming languages, with statistics compiled by Indeed.com revealing that an average Python developer makes approximately $120,923. Secondly, Python has many uses such as graphics, data science, web development, finance, trading, and security. Lastly, Python can be learned faster than many other languages. As a result, no matter if you are a beginning developer or a developer looking to add a new programming language to your resume, you can become skilled in Python much more quickly than it would take to learn most other languages. In short, Python is a great first programming language to learn, and has the added advantage of a higher salary!

Students will learn about the syntax, principles, and thought processes that programming entails. What You’ll Learn:

  • Learn how to operate using a text editor and terminal.
  • Learn how to write your own Python code that will be able to iterate over data sets.
  • Understand how to think like a programmer and become comfortable with Python’s syntax.
  • Create code to solve every-day real-life problems.
  • Learn how to write complex programs using Python.
  • Learn how computers execute programs.

    Overall very happy wit the course. The third class became very confusing and hard to keep up. The instructor tried to touch all the materials that perhaps was too much for one class.

    Great class to get started with python. Pros - We covered a lot in only three lessons. (Taking your time to go over the notes and exercises afterwards is imperative if you want to learn). -Art and Tim were great teachers who were happy to answer any questions and are very knowledgable. -There was a snowstorm on the night of my second class, and I couldn't make it from work in time. Art let me move to the next cohort with no dramas at all. -Art is always available for questions, he got back to me within minutes whenever I asked him about something. Cons - This may not even be a con, but we jumped straight into the language and syntax. If you are a complete beginner to coding, you'll need to go over what a terminal is, what a shell is, and how enter things in the command line. I had dabbled a bit on Codecademy, but never really attempted to code for real and this was a bit disorienting at first. About 20 min of googling after the first class had me up to speed though. Overall a great class and would totally recommend if you want to start learning python.

    A good entry level class, a lot of material is covered and the potential of Python is clear. There were 2 professor, one much better than the other, both really nice guys and willing to give personal attention. The class could have been better structured and better paced. I liked that they do allow time for students to work on programs so a person can tell if they are getting it, this actually did not happen much in the third class and I could tell not many people were getting the material.

    Art is terrific and very patient. He knows his material and stops to be sure all are following along. I would highly recommend this class to people interested in learning Python from scratch.

    I enrolled in the Introduction to Python course after noticing how many jobs are needing Python experience recently. I already had programming experience and a Computer Science degree but wanted to take a course to make learning a bit easier and to force myself to do it. Art is a great instructor and used many clear examples during the course. My particular class only had 3 students including myself and the 2 others were not tech savvy. Art was very good at handling their questions and keeping the pace of the class moving though I would imagine if the class was larger it would be more difficult with many people who didn't know some technical basics especially since it's only a 3 session course. I walked away with a solid foundation in Python though and I've been learning on my own as well and going into more advanced features beyond what was taught in the course. It's a good springboard to start learning Python. Art also provided potential job interview questions and that same week I actually encountered one of them in a real interview so he was right on the mark. You will benefit the most if you do work on your own between the classes and make use of the resources provided to you for self study.

    This course was a great introduction to the various data types in Python and when to use them. The exercises were challenging but improve your understanding of the material. An ideal choice for someone who has some familiarity with programming but doesn't know Python.

    I have found practical programming courses very helpful. Art has been a great instructor and super helpful outside of class as well. After taking his 4 week Intro to Python (weekends) course, I decided to take Blockchain 101, Python for Web Scraping and will be staring my next course using Python for Machine Learning in a few weeks. I would recommend taking these courses in order to get you started on coding. Whether you just want to learn coding for fun or also want to learn it for application purposes (work or personal), these have been a great starter for me. Looking forward to taking more intensive courses with practical programming in the future.

Hello - Prior to taking this course are there any supplementary readings that would be helpful for getting familiar with the language of programming/the topics discussed in this class?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Libby! Introduction to Python is for people who have never coded before. Students will start from scratch and even discuss how to install and run Python, hence no supplementary readings necessary in taking this class. Hope this helps!
