What is this course about?
In a fast-growing world, Python programming is becoming a must-have skill. Whether you want to automate email sending, rename 10 thousand files at once, schedule SMS, auto-start the webcam, create APIs, auto-login to websites, scrape values, and many, other cool programs, this course has it all. In the process of learning to do all those cool programs, you will master Python and will create programs with ease.
What will students learn to automate?
One of Python's strongest points is to make our jobs easier and more fun by automating tasks in any area. You will learn to send emails with attachments to hundreds of CSV contacts, automate SMS messages, filter photos from your albums, detect faces in photos and videos, spin up and deploy quick web apps, extract data from websites and PDF files, convert between different file formats, clean text using natural language processing, and many many more. At the end of the course, you will be equipped with a strong set of skills and a good GitHub portfolio.
Who is this course for?
This course is literally for anyone, from data scientists to students to doctors to musicians to new prospective programmers. With Python, you can do things from web scraping to generating music. There is always something that can be done with Python.
Do I need prior Python knowledge?
Yes. You need to know Python basics that are variables, data types, functions, conditionals, and loops. This course does not cover those because you can find such content easily on YouTube.
Can we use the apps to build our own GitHub portfolio?
Yes. You can publish the apps in your own GitHub account. However, it is recommended that you first change something from the code or even better, improve the code to make the apps really unique and yours. That will help your learning.
Do I have to follow the course in the given order?
No, you can pick the topics you like and only watch the videos and do the practice activities only for those topics.
What if I get stuck?
You will get stuck at some point. Every programmer does. When that happens, we've got your back. You can drop a question in the Q&A, and the instructor or the teaching assistant will answer your questions within the same day. You can also use the chat in the course Discord server to ask questions and chat with fellow students about Python.
What if I don’t like the course?
That will likely not happen. But, if it does, you are covered by the Udemy 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can quickly return the course. No questions asked.
Does this course cover Python 2 or Python 3?
What IDE/editor is used in the course?
We use the Repl IDE which is becoming a gold standard nowadays due to the share and collaborate features the IDE offers which are especially useful when you are still learning However, you are free to use your favorite IDE.
Do I need Windows, Mac, or Linux to take the course?
The operating system does not matter. You can even use a mobile device since the IDE we are using works in the browser.
Does the course expire?
No. Once you buy the course, it is yours. You will get all future updates for free as well.
Who this course is for:
- Python beginners and intermediates
Hi, I am Ardit! I am a Python programmer, teacher, and founder of PythonHow. I graduated in 2013 with a Master of Science in Geospatial Technologies from the University of Muenster in Germany with a focus on using Python for remote sensing.
I have worked with companies from various countries, such as the Center for Conservation Geography, to map and understand Australian ecosystems, image processing with the Swiss in-Terra, and performing data mining to gain business insights with the Australian Rapid Intelligence.
If you want to learn Python through my courses, I propose the following learning path: Start with The Python Mega Course 2022: Build 10 Real-World Applications. Students love that course as a comprehensive real-world guide to Python and building programs with Python. After finishing that course, take my Automate Everything with Python course if you want to use Python to make small-to-medium programs. That course contains everything you need to start using Python as your swiss army knife. On the other hand, if you are interested in making large applications, my advanced course Advanced Python: Python OOP with 10 Real-World Programs would be a better choice. All the courses are listed here on my Udemy profile page.
