The Python Mega Course is the most practical course you will find on the web today. In this course, rather than practicing rote memorization, students are actively problem-solving towards tangible goals. You will learn to build real-life desktop programs with graphical user interfaces, automate routine tasks, control the computer webcam, develop interactive web applications using Flask and Django, scrape and visualize data, and more. You will become a programmer able to produce real-life Python programs and even create professional .exe or .app executables so that everyone can install and use your programs. There will be ten real-world Python applications that you will learn how to build. These are:
Volcano Web Map
This first app will be a simple Python program that will help you practice all core Python building blocks you learned in the previous sections of the course. You will learn how to combine Python core concepts with the codebase of a third-party Python web mapping library to create interactive web maps on the browser. That will help you understand how to use core Python blocks such as conditionals, for-loops, and functions in a real-world program.
Webcam Motion Detector
This program will take Python to a new level. You will learn how to use Python to process webcam video frame by frame and detect and highlight moving objects in those video frames.
Personal Website with Python
If you are interested in building web apps, this app will give you the needed skills to create web applications using Python. The website you will make will be simple yet contain all the necessary elements to get you started with web development in Python.
Book Inventory Database App
The book inventory app will be a desktop program with a graphical user interface that allows users to add new books, delete and change existing book information. You will learn to store the data in an SQL database and interact with that database through Python.
Data Analysis and Visualization App
This section will be a series of videos where we analyze an extensive dataset of product reviews. You will learn to clean, process, and analyze the data and generate various interactive graphs using libraries such as pandas, matplotlib, and HighCharts.
Feel Good Mobile App
If you are interested in building mobile apps with Python, this program will show you how to do that. However, if you are not after mobile apps, you could still watch the videos of this app as it helps you practice Python core concepts.
Real Estate Web Scraper
Here you will learn to build a program that crawls through different real-estate website pages with properties for sale. The program scrapes information such as sale price, address, and property type from each webpage and automatically saves all cleaned information in an Excel file.
Database Web App
This app will be an advanced web app that integrates user forms, automated emails, and PostGreSQL databases. Your app users can provide data through the web app, and your app stores and processes those data and sends back processed data to users via email.
Django Blog and Translator App
You will learn Django with this app. The web app you will build will consist of a blog with an admin interface where content creators can write and publish new blog posts. You will also learn how to build a translator similar to Google Translator as part of this web app.
Geocoder Web App
This will be an app that will process and display data tables. Specifically, the app converts addresses to geographic coordinates using pandas and other libraries.
More about the course
The course is updated regularly, and you will often see a new app replacing an old app. So your one-time purchase will give you lifetime access to every new app tutorial added to the course. That will help you to keep in touch with Python regularly and continuously advance your skills.
Before we start building the ten apps, you will first learn the fundamentals of Python programming. If you know Python basics already, you can jump right in with the first app. By building the ten apps, you will master Python and gain the skills to create Python programs independently. You can also use any of the ten apps for your portfolio.
You will code the apps, guided step-by-step by straightforward video explanations, and continuous support from the course instructor. If you get stuck, you can ask questions at any time in the Q&A, and the instructor or the teaching assistant will jump in and help you with your questions.
By buying the course, you will gain lifetime access to all of its videos, coding exercises, quizzes, code notebooks, cheat sheets, and the Q&A forum inside the course. Moreover, you are covered by the Udemy 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can quickly return the course if you don't like it.
Some reviews from students who have taken the course
"I tried a few online Python courses and can say with certainty this is the best thing I came across. This content is delivered and explained in amazing way- at the end of each section you are left with comprehensive understanding of what you just did- which is something that lacks in a lot of online courses. Apart from great teacher you also get quite a lot of material- I compared this course with couple of bootcamps priced at several thousands of pounds and there's not much difference in what you take away. Highly recommended!! - Bartosz Bobnis
"This class is the perfect blend of beginner and advanced. I have learned a lot about python but this lets me apply it! highly recommend! UPDATED A year later I have a job in the field and still, come back to reference his stuff! Great work"! - Taylor Ferguson
Q: Will I be able to learn Python and find a job after completing this course?
A: Many students who have rigorously taken the course have found a job afterward. However, whether you will be able to learn Python and be job-ready heavily depends on you.
If you merely watch the videos, you will hardly learn anything without trying things on your computer. So instead, try the code on your computer, change the code, run it, improve it further, rerun it, fix the possible errors, try making a similar app, repeat, ask questions in the Q&A when you get stuck, and try to solve all the exercises in the course. That way, you will undoubtedly learn how to program with Python and find a job.
Q: How much time will I need to complete the course?
A: That depends on two factors; your background and the amount of effort you put in. Someone coming from a math or computer science background may be able to complete the course in a shorter time compared to someone coming from a social science background, for example. The amount of effort also has a significant impact. If you passively watch the videos, you may finish the course in two days. However, merely watching the videos is not enough. You need to experiment with the code you see in the videos. The more you experiment with it, the better you become.
Depending on the two factors I mentioned above, students spend from one week to three months to complete the course, most spending one month.
Q: I don't know anything about programming. Will I still be able to learn Python?
A: This course assumes you have no previous knowledge of programming. Whenever a programming term is mentioned in the class (e.g., a variable), that term is explained thoroughly, so you not only understand how to use that particular term in Python, you also understand what that term means in programming.
Q: Will I get support if I get stuck?
A: Yes. You are welcome to drop a question in the Q&A, and I, or my teaching assistant, will answer your questions within the same day. You can also use our Discord server chat to ask questions.
Q: Does this course cover Python 2 or Python 3?
A: Python 3
Q: What IDE/editor is used in the course?
A: We use Visual Studio Code in the course. However, you can use your favorite IDE. PyCharm, Atom, and even IDLE will work correctly.
Q: Does the course expire?
A: No. Once you buy the course, it's yours. We update the content regularly, and all the updates come to you for free in the one-time purchase you make.
