Question from Sami Q.
Would you help me with my resume, review it and add topics that covered in the course to my resume?
Answer from Anonymous
Yes, absolutely
Question from anonymous
Do you provide any written materials, if yes could I keep them? Can I contact instructors after the course if I have any questions?
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
We will provide you with written materials and Python code examples as an online coursepack.
Question from Andrew D.
Why do you not provide a weekend version?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse Staff
Hi Andrew! They will, but there is Python for Data Science very close version to Python Immersive, just slightly different flavor. You may click the link here:
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
There is plenty of information available for free online; however, having an instructor to show you the fundamentals can get you started on the right path. If you work on it a few hours a day, you might learn the basics in a few months.
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
Now we have a weekend course.

Question from K
This entire course is only 5 days?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Yes, this course is for 5 days, 7 hours every day. Hope this helps!
Question from K
How does a 5-day course provide enough information for an entry-level programming job? I know nothing about coding or programming, and I am finding it hard to believe I will learn anything in 5 days. I don’t even know what Python is.
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
The first step would be to research about Python Programming Language and decide if you want to spend time learning Python. In Python Immersive we explain the core of Python, built-in data types, data structures behavior, the common interview questions and Big-O notation. I would require hard work on your side, homework assignments and practice. We don't want you to invest your time and money unless you are absolutely going to get the result you are committed to at the beginning of this course.
Question from anonymous
Hi, Do you create the materials on your own? Or are they taken off the internet and taught? And if they are taken off the internet, which most likely it is, can I get just get the material, so I don't waste my money?
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
Python Immersive is not about lectures, this is not a history class. Python Immersive is about how to build stuff on your own, it is a constant process of lectures, guidance, debugging and hard work.
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
I love stackoverflow, however very often people giving advises on stackoverflow has no fundamental understanding of programming, so many funny examples, like use iterate through Pandas DataFrame with a for loop. I guess people have no idea how to write an efficient code.
Answer from anonymous
Stackoverflow if you checked the model has community voting on the answers given. That means the best answers are filtered. It's more reliable than some coding schools teaching.

Question from anonymous
Will this class be offered in October or November? Thanks!
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse Staff
Hi there! As of now, that's the only available dates for this class. We really can't say when will it be offered again. You can add it to your wish-list so you can be notified via email when new updates are made on the website.
Question from David
I see the reviews saying this is a 2 week class. Just confirming this is a one week class?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse Staff
Hi David! Yes, this is a one week class, Monday to Friday, 10 am to 5 pm. Hope this helps!
Question from saul
How well would this work if I can only be there part of the day some days (i.e., attend from 10-3:30 MWF, and 10-1 plus 3:30-5 T/Th)? Possible or impossible?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse Staff
Yes, this is possible, just advise the instructor in advance on the time you'll be leaving and coming back to class. Also, you could take this course again with a new cohort.
Answer from anonymous
Impossible. You're wasting your time and money

Python Immersive
Reviewed by Sabbir Mohammed on 10/1/2018
This class was taught by instructors Tim and Art, both of whom were extremely knowledgeable and tremendously helpful. The small class size made the hands-on learning very effective. It is a tough course that is very extensive, but I learned a lot! With no prior coding experience this was the best introduction to Python I could expect. 5 of 5!

Reviewed by Anonymous on 8/29/2018
This was by far the most informative and well taught python class I've taken. Both Art and Tim went out of their way to make sure that everyone understood the material and took the time to adress any and all questions. I would reccomend this course to annyone who needs to understand python who may have little previous experience with it. Definitely the best value of any programming language courseI have ever taken.
Python Immersive
Reviewed by Joanne on 8/11/2018
Great class! We covered a lot of material in a short amount of time. The challenges were fun, and I enjoyed working on them as a team with other classmates. I think the class would be even better if, in the morning, we went over all the solutions to the exercises from the night before. Because even if I didn't get to work on them at home, I can still benefit to see how they are solved. Since I have JavaScript programming background, it was easier for me to understand the concepts even though Art went over them kind of fast. Some other students had a harder time, but assistant teacher, Tim, would explain the concepts in a different way which helped. The class description should probably be updated since we didn't cover these topics: • Python's datetime module • Regular expressions • Writing to a File • Appending to a File • Selection sort • Merge sort (this we went over only because we had extra time) Overall, I had a great experience and would recommend it to anyone who is starting to learn Python!

instructors is very helpful, using a lot of real life examlpes and self help tool when we are on our own how to approach on solving problems.

Course gives great steps towards being knowledgeable in Python. Dependent upon doing independent work and reviewing at home, but taught me a lot in only 5 days.
