Welcome to one of the unique programming Bootcamp experiences you will ever get.
The most critical difference between my courses and others is ... going beyond knowledge: With me, you get really skilled. The extensive amount of quizzes, practices, homework, and [real] projects ranging from easy to hard will reshape your skills.
The course covers basic to advanced modern Python 3 syntax. Beginners will learn a lot!
The course helps you master the 4 most important skills for a programmer
Problem-solving skills: rarely covered by other courses
Project building skills: partially covered by other courses
Design skills: rarely covered by other courses
7+ times practice & homework compare to other courses + many (real & challenging) projects
Special Teaching style: iterative, easy, and short
This is an English Course only. Full manual English subtitles will also be provided soon.
Content (under progress)
Fundamentals: Variables, Loops, Control Flow, Lists, Tuples, Sets, Dictionary, Functions, Recursive Functions
Object-Oriented Programming (OOP):
Objects, Classes, Abstraction, Inheritance, Polymorphism, Operator Overloading
Embedded in homework: Several design principles & patterns
Special Topics: Files, Exception Handling, Decorators, Generators, Popular modules
A huge set of Quizzes, Practice, Homework, and Projects
2 styles of homework: Algorithmic (problem-solving) and applications
Several software design concerns are embedded in the homework.
So you are getting introduced to Software Engineering & Design Patterns
Several quizzes to master the concepts
Building Skills: Practice, Homework, and Projects
One unique feature in this course is my education strategy:
Each video smoothly explains a simple concept(s)
Typically followed by easy to medium practice to administrate the concept
Then typically followed by an easy-medium-hard set of homework questions to challenge you
Extensive homework from easy to medium to hard to help to build the skills.
Most of the practice/homework questions are unique in this course
Small-to-large set of projects to build up project building and design skills
Solutions to all of them.
By the end of the journey
Solid understanding of programming concepts and its Python syntax
Mastering the target 4 skills
With the administered problem-solving skills
You can start competitive programming smoothly in Div2-A/B Codeforces
Smooth start in Data Structure course
Smooth start in Algorithms course
With the administered project-building and design skills
Smooth start in Software Engineering course
Later, smooth start in one of the technology tracks in frontend or backend
What are the common complaints from programming courses?
Limited topics coverage.
Unnecessary long videos with repetitions.
Too much time to explain basic concepts.
A sudden jump in the level. I can't cope with the content.
Assumptions of previous knowledge to understand some of the concepts.
Building over concepts that were not mastered through practice or homework.
The same examples are used over and over.
Several consecutive lectures without practice or homework to master the concepts.
Awesome knowledge, almost zero skills.
Very little practice or homework.
Good homework in the first half and very weak in the remaining.
Many homework without solutions.
Only one project.
Long but tedious project.
The project doesn't help enforce the concepts.
Project source code is not provided. I needed to compare and learn.
Moving to Datastructures or Algorithms course was not easy. Weak problem-solving skills.
After the course, I am still stuck and can't do even simple projects. Weak project-building skills.
The course taught OOP syntax and concepts nicely, but OOD skills are not built. Weak design-skills.
In this course, not only the content and skills are unique and added value, but also the whole experience to avoid as possible the above concerns and much more! Even if you attended a programming course, my material will be an added value, especially its homework and projects.
Don't miss such a unique learning experience!
Samples from students reviews
This class along with the C++ course are probably the two best courses that I have found on Udemy.
One of the most underrated Python courses.
Unbelievable this incredible course, I hope you continue these courses the best course to start in a programming career I recommend it for any student
Amazing, above expectations! This is the first time I have attended a class in this format and wondered how effective it would be. It was very effective and therefore I would definitely be interested in attending other classes in the same format. The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided a wealth of information about Python programming.
This isn't my first course with Dr.Mostafa and will not be the last, I really love his way of teaching and his mindset which not focus only on giving a lot of information but also more on gaining skills that are more important
This course is very useful, it covers many topics in a simple and effective way. The most interesting thing is that it includes many quizzes and assignments for practicing and doesn't focus only on theoretical learning.
Dr Mostafa is the best instructor to take a course with, I loved all his previous courses and benefits from his advice which helped me improve my skills and reach great goals in my career, This course strengthens the problem-solving skills as well as building good scale projects and that what I am looking for, between tens of courses I have ever taken this is the best.
This course is one of the best programming courses; The course structure is comprehensive and covers the most language fundamentals to advance.
This course is very focused and extensive. I wish I could find a similar course before this so that I can save a lot of time and avoid those who usually say you will build 50 projects and after you finish you learn nothing.
Thanks a lot for the course with such a comprehensive structure, I would recommend it to those who are starting to learn Python, as well as to those who want to do more complex programs. Most things explained very clearly, Dr. Mostafa did a very good job showing a lot of different topics in an understandable way.
Great course with real-world examples. I would recommend to those who are starting to learn Python, as well as to those who want to do more complex programs. Most things explained very clearly, with alot of practice help you to master different skills
I think it's one of the most distinguished programming courses that exist on Udemy because i have never met an instructor who is interested in teaching his students to not only write syntax but also teaching me to solve coding problems and use what i learn to serve my need in another word he teaches me to be a programmer not only a coder(person who only write syntax)
I really enjoying the material he is mentioning and the way he is teaching it is perfect for me am really interested in the future courses for Dr moustafa
The course is simply great: The structure of the information and content provided, the quality of voice and presentation slides, the challenging level of the homework assignments and projects is suitable and up to my expectations, the curriculum is perfect and well-structured. Simply amazing and highly recommended
The best course about python that I have studied. It has a lot of valuable information and the instructor is very helpful
Thanks in advance, The Course is very great contains a lot of quizzes and assignments ranging from easy to hard, I think there is no course that can cover a whole language like this course, The course really is very useful, Thanks!
This is a great course. Everything is explained well and there is a lot of exercises instead of just talking about the theory of Python. I would highly recommend it.
Samples from students reviews (cpp version):
"So far, this course has been better than I expected. There are enough challenges and enough content here to be a full introduction to programming and CS. The challenges really are challenging, and I plan to come back later to address some of them. The questions force you to think and to think through problems. This really is a CS 50 level course." - Adam Cohon
"Really exceptional course! I have fundamentals in c++ and OOP, but still I learn a lot from this course. Much appreciated to the lecturer." - Zichen Zhang
"Excellent teaching. Simple style and easy to follow. Very practical. Gets a beginner programmer ready for real-world scenarios." - Ramesh Donthireddy
"It is always clear whatever the professor is trying to explain and I find that a good quality of teaching. I am looking forward to progressing further in the course and learn the 4 critical skills" - Manjot Singh Kalsi
"Well, actually one of the outstanding things about this course is the way of explaining the complex concept in a very simple and easy way. Moreover, the way of presenting the subject and connecting them with the actual programming in terms of programming projects." - Müeyyed garz
"For me, it's 'early days' since beginning this, but it has been a most impressive start. This course is up-to-date, the material is clearly explained, and the instructor has a clear passion for both the subject and the learners. Everything (the lecture style, the homework, and the support network) so far has exceeded my expectations, and there's clear evidence of a solid and pragmatic teaching methodology from the instructor. In essence, it looks like a student-led course (student-led learning is the most effective way!) where the instructor doesn't allow the student to get lost! The instructor's trifecta of: 1) excellent up-to-date knowledge; 2) a clear passion for sharing this knowledge; 3) a teaching methodology that is both challenging AND accessible to the learner; is the key to the success of this course. There is a solid support network on Discord as well, and (in case there is any doubt) I would recommend this course highly." - Bobby Bogan
"Simply amazing!!! I was looking for an in-depth, project-based C++ course and this is exactly what I had been looking for. If you want to learn to program or even if you already have some experience programming but are looking to build a more solid foundation I highly recommend this course. This is definitely the perfect introduction to programming." - Mariam Ihab
"This course is a hidden gem for many reasons. Firstly, the depth and breadth of the course are perfect to get you to a competent level. Secondly, the instructor is succinct and does not beat around the bush. He explains things clearly and to the point. Thirdly, the course is filled with exercises and assignments that make sure the concept is drilled in your head. I wish I had such a course back in university." - Sherif Hussein
"I highly recommend this course to anyone. Love the way that dr. Mustafa is teaching. It has covered all the basics and advanced C++ topics in a simple and clear fashion. He explains any structure in simple organized steps with real examples that helped me to stay focus and not get confused. I appreciate his efforts in providing lots of quizzes, homework, and projects." - Gogo
"The most perfect, organized, updated, and comprehensive C++ course I've ever seen. Made by a great experienced professional lecturer who designed the course perfectly well.

Highly recommended" - Bassem Hussein
"Really a wonderful course to learn c++. 1- The clarity with which the instructor speaks. 2- The Way this course is organized helped me revisiting the topics I needed to revise. 3- The coverage of many topics that other courses don't offer and the large number of projects that this course offer to turn knowledge into real skills. 4- The Level of the quizzes, they are challenging. 5- I wanted to start Competitive Programming, and this course taught me all that I really need to start this journey." - Abdelrahman Ahmed
"The course is rich with wonderful practice and programming techniques. If you really want a strong fundamental in C++ programming, good knowledge in OOP, or building object-oriented projects, I recommend it strongly. It is also a very good step before starting in competitive programming." - Moaz Basheer
"I have tried a lot of courses in c++ in Udemy, Linda, Youtube also, their courses have same issues dependent on Syntax Only, how to type Variables, how to fix errors, how to code in c++ Only. But This Course is different a lot it helps You How to Think, How to Solve Problems, How to use this language in Competitive Programming, How To think about Your Project. it is really useful" - Kareem fthi
"This is the most focused, comprehensive, well-organized C++ course I've ever seen. Dr Mostafa has a unique and simple way of teaching and delivering the concepts. I really enjoyed this course and I will definitely recommend it to other people." - Haytham Waddah
