Description

                                       Beginners and Kids Can Now Learn Python the Fun and Easy Way 

Teach yourself (and your kids) to code fun games, graphics and GUI in Python, the powerful programming language used at tech companies and in academia. 

Unlike the other courses and books out there, this course provides a rare opportunity to learn the graphics and UX (User Experience) sides of Python – even as a beginner! Unlike the many other Python courses on Udemy, this course introduces you to this computer language by drawing shapes, coding a simple game, and designing GUIs (Graphic User Interfaces), including a functional GUI for a temperature converter app.

Gain a Firm Foundation in Python GUI Programming

  • Learn the basics of Python game programming
  • Craft elegant and useful Python GUIs
  • Create simple and practical applications in Python
  • Explore the world of Python graphic design

If you want to learn to code, Python GUIs are the best way to start!

I designed this programming course to be easily understood by absolute beginners and young people. We start with basic Python programming concepts. Reinforce the same by developing games, graphics and GUIs. And finally we will develop a practical temperature converter app using Python.

Why Python?

The Python coding language integrates well with other platforms – and runs on virtually all modern devices. If you’re new to coding, you can easily learn the basics in this fast and powerful coding environment. If you have experience with other computer languages, you’ll find Python simple and straightforward. This OSI-approved open-source language allows free use and distribution – even commercial distribution.

Can You Build a Career with Python?

Absolutely! On average, U.S. Python developers earn $109,000 per year. This powerful and widely-used language could be your or your child's ticket to a better life. With the rigorous grounding you get from this course, you’ll have the knowledge and confidence to step into higher-level Python courses.

How Can You Use Python?

Once you gain a basic knowledge of Python through this course, you can explore a diverse range of programming specialties:

  • Build Desktop/Laptop GUIs
  • Design Exciting and Immersive Games
  • Develop Websites and Apps
  • Analyze Scientific and Statistical Data
  • Create Educational Software
  • Access and Organize Databases
  • Manage Networks

Who Uses Python?

This course gives you a solid set of skills in one of today’s top programming languages. Today’s biggest companies (and smartest startups) use Python, including Google, Facebook, Instagram, Amazon, IBM, and NASA. Python is increasingly being used for scientific computations and data analysis. 


You Can Start Right Away, Without Prior Programming Experience

Detailed instructions have been provided with regards to Python installation and getting started with Microsoft Visual Code, a powerful programming IDLE that will be a valuable tool for your programming journey. Hands-on coding instructions have been provided in the lecture videos to enable you to follow along. Additionally, working code examples have been provided for you to try and modify. Each video will teach you a new practical programming concept that you can apply in real time and quizzes will reinforce your learning. 

The instructor is an Oxbridge trained researcher and always available to troubleshoot. You'll also receive an industry recognized Certificate of Completion upon finishing the course.

Bestselling Udemy Instructor & Data Scientist(Cambridge Uni)

Hello. I am a PhD graduate from Cambridge University where I specialized in Tropical Ecology. I am also a Data Scientist on the side. As a part of my research I have to carry out extensive data analysis, including spatial data analysis.or this purpose I prefer to use a combination of freeware tools- R, QGIS and Python.I do most of my spatial data analysis work using R and QGIS. Apart from being free, these are very powerful tools for data visualization, processing and analysis. I also hold an MPhil degree in Geography and Environment from Oxford University. I have honed my statistical and data analysis skills through a number of MOOCs including The Analytics Edge (R based statistics and machine learning course offered by EdX), Statistical Learning (R based Machine Learning course offered by Standford online). In addition to spatial data analysis, I am also proficient in statistical analysis, machine learning and data mining. I also enjoy general programming, data visualization and web development. In addition to being a scientist and number cruncher, I am an avid traveler
