    A bit disappointed

    The course did provide some new perspective, although the manner in which it was presented could become unnerving. The instructor would sometimes stop in the middle of an explanation in order to try and explain something else, creating a lot of confusion along the way. I did appreciate the Conclusion program and even though the production quality was OK, it would have been even better if there weren't so many "Uhms" and "Uhhhs".

    Great Introduction

    Great introductory course to Python. Glad I took it. I feel like I'm more prepared to further my education in Python as well as scripting.

    • Luis Dionisio Fernandes

    Nice

    the last video was amazing! :)

    A Quick Review

    Coming into this course while knowing the concept of variables, loops, try-catch, functions, classes, etc... made the entire course a breeze. Most of the videos can be skipped through to check for the syntax of each function if that's what you're looking for. If you're a beginner and coming into the course, then it should be a decent resource to begin with and it will definitely get you writing code within the first ~4 sections. If you grasp the concepts easily enough, then you'd be fine to start writing a basic text adventure as your first program, but you may need to look up a bit more about classes in your own time. Overall, I'd recommend the course, but not at the 99$ price. I feel as if such basic information, however presented well, isn't worth more than ~10-15$ at the absolute most. If you can get this course as part of a bundle for a cheap price, then go right ahead, but I wouldn't recommend it otherwise. One thing that I will note is that there seem to have been videos covering Django which would probably have added a bit more value to what's here, but they seem to be marked as old (depreciated?).

    Just skims the surface

    I really enjoyed this course, but it should be understood that this is a shallow, fast and dirty intro to Python. Don't expect to come away from this short video series able to build a program of much complexity, or even to speak about Python with any confidence. It's just a first step to all that. (Really, I can't imagine anyone should pay full price here).
