The reason I made this course is simple. When I was learning Python, I would join courses that spent hours covering the most simple of topics and went far too in depth about niche features of Python I would probably not be using for a while.
Python is so well documented that if you know the basics, you can find out how to do the advanced things really easily.
So this course aims to give you a really good grounding in the basics of Python and will intentionally leave out the bits you’re not going to use very often / ever.
We will cover:
- Creating & interacting with variables
- Using arithmetic functions
- Using comparison operators
- String functions
- Creating & interacting with lists, tuples and dictionaries
- If statements
- For & while loops

What our students think
so far truly no nonsense. Loving this course. Only minor quibble – asking to use the Idle IDE is an unnecessary red herring. You are actually much better off with something like Jupyter NoteBook. I went through the trouble of getting Idle and then realized it wasn’t worth it at all. You can’t store what you are doing, you can clear screen with a cls command and can’t keep notes or comments as you would with Jupyter and Spyder. I wonder why the author saw it fit to recommend that IDE. Otherwise great
Basic but very efficient content to get started with Python language
Having no programming background you explain in a clear, structured way that even I can follow. Cheers mate.
The course does what it says in the title. This is just the first few pages of Python if Python was a very thick book. What is does, as i had expected is that it de-hypes coding. Most tutors unknowingly make it intimidating at the very beginning. Thanks.
Actually once I enrolled in a course that covered the exact same topic in over 4 hours and I still couldn’t get it. But I like this class its easy to understand and simple and all of that in this short time.
Beautifully briefed 🙂
Couldn’t even imagine that it’s possible to learn (and to understand!!!) so many things within such a short period of time. Many thanks! Highly recommended indeed.
Outstanding, great voice of narrator
Everything is explained in a simple and less complex manner
Being that I’m 50 years old and never written a line of code in my life but wanting to pickup a new skill I can use in my job, this was exactly what I needed to break the ice and lay some basic groundwork. Other classes dove right into the deep end of the pool but advertised as Basic or Beginner. This really was easy to understand and a great introduction to the language of Python!
Perfect course if you have no idea on what Python is about and would like to get a a broad idea of the main things you would need to use or to bear in mind to continue learning.
I have programming experience in multiple languages. I wanted an overview of Python without a lot of ‘hand holding’ or endless theory. The instructor was spot on with a rapid introduction, reasonable examples, and even a few ‘gotchas’. Well done!
