Python 3 for Beginners is a comprehensive course designed to teach the fundamentals of Python 3. The course is written for beginners and does not require any prior experience with any programming languages - and if you already know a programming language, you will be able to become proficient in the fundamentals of this language very quickly.
The course begins with the key concepts of programming in Python - identifiers and basic operators. It then jumps to decision making and looping - two key concepts needed for developing powerful real world programs.
From there, you will begin an exploration of the more advanced concepts of Python - tuples, lists, dictionaries, data sets and strings. That is followed by an exploration of working with files (necessary for reading and storing data sets), functions and code reuse. Finally everything is put together with an exploration of modules, object oriented programming (OOP) and gracefully dealing with error situations.
Also, the course is filled with many small examples to illustrate key teachings as well as several programming assignments to help you master the language.
When you complete this detailed Python 3 course, you will have all the tools you need to begin writing useful real world programs and have the core knowledge needed to expand your exploration of Python in whatever direction you desire - whether it be web programming, game development, business and finance applications or even sophisticated science programming running on super computers.

Here is a simple program in Python 3... similar to the one in the lesson. Can you figure out the correct answer?
A quick quiz testing your knowledge of legal identifiers in Python
Take this series of test questions to see how well you understand the basic operators used in Python. These questions will test on all the operator types taught in this section.
Let's reinforce what you just learned about conditionals by writing a simple program that will test and reinforce your knowledge.
Let's take what you learned about loops and write a simple nested loop program to help you reinforce the materials described in this section.
You've learned quite a bit and it is time to reinforce all the things you learned by creating a program using all the elements covered thus far. This set of two lectures will present a programming challenge - creating a restaurant tip and bill calculator - and a code walkthrough that you can examine after you have created your own version of the program.
Test your comprehension of Python 3 tuples in lists with this short quiz series.
Steven Chabotte is an entrepreneur and programmer. He wrote his first computer program in 1979 in a very primitive version of basic on a teletype machine and was immediately hooked by the creative world ad magical world that was offered by writing lines of code to run on a computer.
He then went on to write a teaching system for special needs students at his high school before going off to college to study Astronomy - and the fascinating language of Fortran which opened the world of statistical analysis of Astronomy - an interest that persist to this day but with Python as the main programming language.
Since that time, Steven has tackled many complex projects - from nuclear power plant control systems to real time operating system development and process control systems to complex web applications in a wide variety of high level and machine languages.
He has also run several programming development companies focused on web development tools such as search engine development and email marketing tools as well as web enabled mail order companies.
Steven currently runs two thriving online ecommerce businesses. One is a publish on demand business based on public domain works and one is a more traditional web based mail order business focusing on eBay (since 1997) and Amazon (since 2005) as the marketing platforms.
