This lecture will guide you through installing Python on Windows. We will cover where to download the Python installer from, how to install and set it up and also how to confirm Python is successfully installed and ready to use.
Start using Python with IDLE on Windows. IDLE is the Integrated development environment that comes standard with Python. While we won’t be using this for most of the course, its a good introduction to Python and can be useful for you to know about.
This lecture will guide you through installing Python on Mac OS X. We will cover where to download the Python installer from, how to install and set it up and also how to confirm Python is successfully installed and ready to use.
This lecture will guide you through installing Python on Ubuntu Linux. We will cover where to download the Python installer from, how to install and set it up and also how to confirm Python is successfully installed and ready to use.
This lecture is aimed at giving you a rundown on Python and its history (dont worry its not boring). You will learn how to create a project for the first time, how to make use of the print command to display information to the screen, as well as finding out what strings and operators are and how they work.
This lectures will discuss a fundamental concept in Python (and other programming languages). How to store items to be used in a program. You will understand what variables are and their purpose in Python. You will also understand more about operators, and how to make use of them. The operators we will discuss include +, - , *, / , and //.
String formatting is another important concept in Python, and you will learn about it in this video. Specifically, what String formatting is, how to apply it in your code, and display Strings and numbers. You will also be introduce to replacement fields, which is important when it comes to printing out multiple strings and numbers.
Its time to discuss the basics of Program Flow Control. Namely, what it is and how its used, and how its an important basic fundamental in Python programming. You will also learn about indentation which is something not required in many other programming languages, and how using it incorrectly can prevent programs from working.
If, ElIf, and Else are important building blocks for Python programs. Here, we are going to discuss what they are used for, namely condition processing of your code, which is essential to creating any program of even minimal complexity.
This lectures continues where we left off with If, ElIf, and Else. This time we will use more complex versions and get to know the and and or operators.
This is a challenge lecture to better understand your knowledge of If, ElIf, and Else. As with all challenges in the course, try solving the challenge first, and then come back and see how we did it. The challenge involves creating a program that asks the user to enter the name and age and check if the age meets our requirements to take a holiday.
In some cases you may want to break out a for loop early. We are going to look at continue and break which are two ways to help control the flow of your Python program. Plus we are going to look at a second and separate use of Else that we have not seen previously.
IntelliJ does a great job to warn us if our code has errors, but it also suggests if there are ways for the code to be improved. We will find out how to use the markers that show up on the right hand side of the screen to check for warnings in our code. We will also learn to use a short hand way to assign values to variables with a concept called Augmented Assignment.
This is a challenge for the while loop. The challenge consists of you developing a program that allows as many guesses of a number as possible and should the let the player know if the guess is higher or lower (its an advanced version of code we developed without a while loop previously).
This lecture introduces you to the basic sequences in Python. Namely Lists, Ranges and Tuples. We will focus mainly on Lists here, what they are, how they work, and all about sequences. Plus we will start on sequence operators. We will even cover how to sort your lists simply and efficiently.
This lecture continues the discussions on lists with an exercise on using the list function to print each and every single character of a string. We discuss some inbuild options like setting reverse=true to reverse the sorting of elements in a list.
Ranges are a useful addition to for loops. You will learn about Ranges here. Specifically, you will learn about having more fine control on what part of the sequence you want to process. In addition, you will understand what to do and importantly, what not do when using Ranges in your Python code. We finish with understanding Slices, what they are and how to implement them with ranges.
Continuing on with Tuples, here are will look at more advanced concepts. Specifically, how to put tuples within tuples. And we will finish off with a mini challenge where you will need to figure out how to use Tuples to print a music album's individual track details.

…then you need a solid foundation in Python programming. And this course is designed to give you those core skills, fast.
This course is aimed at complete beginners who have never programmed before, as well as existing programmers who want to increase their career options by learning Python.
The fact is, Python is one of the most popular programming languages in the world – Huge companies like Google use it in mission critical applications like Google Search.
And Python is the number one language choice for machine learning, data science and artificial intelligence. To get those high paying jobs you need an expert knowledge of Python, and that’s what you will get from this course.
By the end of the course you’ll be able to apply in confidence for Python programming jobs. And yes, this applies even if you have never programmed before. With the right skills which you will learn in this course, you can become employable and valuable in the eyes of future employers.
Here’s what a few students have told us about the course after going through it.
“I had very limited programming experience before I started this course, so I have really learned a lot from the first few sections. It has taken me from essentially zero programming skill to a level where I'm comfortable using Python to analyze data for my lab reports, and I'm not even halfway done the course yet. There are other courses out there which focus on data analysis, but those courses are usually targeted at people who already know how to program which is why I chose this course instead. “ – Christian DiMaria
“I have been puttering through your Python course . In that time, though, and without finishing it yet I've been able to automate quite a bit at my work. I work in a school system and unifying data from our various student information systems can be incredibly frustrating, time consuming, and at times challenging. Using your course, I've learned enough to write applications that turn massive text files into dictionaries that get "stitched" together like a database and output to properly formatted CSV files and then uploaded via SFTP to various systems for secure processing. Our teachers, students, and the tech department have greatly benefitted from this automation. I just wanted to drop you a note thanking you for helping me learn this skill.” – Keith Medlin
“This course was great. Within 3 weeks I was able to write my own database related applications.” – Theo Coenen
And there are many more students who love the course – check out all the reviews for yourself.
Will this course give you core python skills?
Yes it will. There are a range of exciting opportunities for Python developers. All of them require a solid understanding of Python, and that’s what you will learn in this course.
Will the course teach me data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence?
No, it won’t do that – All of these topics are branches of Python programming. And all of them require a solid understanding of the Python language.
Nearly all courses on these topics assume that you understand Python, and without it you will quickly become lost and confused.
This course will give you that core, solid understanding of the Python programming language.
By the end of the course you will be ready to apply for Python programming positions as well as move on to specific areas of Python, as listed above.
Why should you take this course?
There are a lot of Python courses on Udemy – Your instructors, Tim and Jean-Paul are pretty unique in that between them they have around 70 years of professional programming experience. That’s more than a lifetime of skills you get to learn Python from.
You can enrol in the course safe in the knowledge that they are not just teachers, but professional programmers with real commercial programming experience, having worked with big companies like IBM, Mitsubishi, Fujitsu and Saab in the past.
As such you will not only be learning Python, but you will be learning industry best practices for Python programming that real employers demand.
And if that’s not enough take a read of some of the many reviews from happy students – there are around 100,000 students who have left around 19,000 reviews.
This is one of the most popular courses on Python programming on Udemy.
Here’s just some of what you’ll learn
(It’s okay if you don’t understand all this yet, you will in the course)
· All the essential Python keywords, operators, statements, and expressions needed to fully understand exactly what you’re coding and why - making programming easy to grasp and less frustrating
· You will learn the answers to questions like What is the Python For Loop, what is Python used for, how Python switch the traditional syntax of code, and more.
· Complete chapters on object-oriented programming and many other aspects of Python, including tKInter (for building GUI Interfaces) and using databases with Python.
· Although this is primarily a Python 3 course, a python developer will need to work with Python 2 projects from time to time – We’ll show the difference in both versions to make sure you understand how things work differently in each version.
· How to develop powerful Python applications using one of the most powerful Integrated Development Environments on the market, IntelliJ IDEA! - Meaning you can code functional programs easier. IntelliJ has both a FREE and PAID version, and you can use either in this course. PyCharm will also work just fine.
(Don’t worry if you want to use another IDE. You’re free to use any IDE and still get the most out of this course).
Does the course get updated?
It’s no secret how technology is advancing at a rapid rate. New, more powerful hardware and software are being released every day, meaning it’s crucial to stay on top with the latest knowledge.
A lot of other courses on Udemy get released once, and never get updated. Learning from an outdated course and/or an outdated version of Python can be counter productive and even worse it could teach you the wrong way to do things.
For example if you apply some parts of Python 2 to Python 3 code, you will get completely different results.
We cover differences like this in the course and also continually update the course as well.
What if you have questions?
As if this course wasn’t complete enough, we offer full support, answering any questions you have 7 days a week (whereas many instructors answer just once per week, or not at all).
This means you’ll never find yourself stuck on one lesson for days on end. With our hand-holding guidance, you’ll progress smoothly through this course without any major roadblocks.
That’s just one reason why Tim was voted top 10 in the Udemy instructor awards (out of a whopping 18,000 instructors), and quickly became a top-rated, bestselling instructor on the Udemy site.
Student Quote: “Tim and JP are excellent teachers and are constantly answering questions and surveying students on new topics they will like to learn. This isn't a Python course it’s THE Python course you need.” – Sean Burger
There’s no risk either!
This course comes with a full 30 day money-back guarantee. Meaning if you are not completely satisfied with the course or your progress, simply let Tim or J-P know and they will refund you 100%, every last penny no questions asked.
You either end up with Python skills, go on to develop great programs and potentially make an awesome career for yourself, or you try the course and simply get all your money back if you don’t like it…
You literally can’t lose.
