ABOUT THE COURSE

In our Introduction to Python Programming course, we start with the complete basics -- which are geared toward complete beginners to Python. Our live, instructor-led course emphasizes the foundations of Python coding for beginners in an engaging format that learners cannot find in online tutorials. This groundwork helps students gain an understanding of how to write their own code competently and efficiently.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THIS COURSE

During this workshop, we explain, in detail, everything you need to start using Python. We discuss how Python memory management works and the behavior of the basic built-in data types in the programming language. We also cover variables and built-in functions. We also explain how to create user-defined Python functions, and how to extract and analyze data from text files with Python. The once-a-week format of this class lets students practice their coding skills over the week and then ask more questions at the next class. Students learn by solving real-life challenges that can strengthen their coding skills, which can be implemented after they leave the classroom.

after the course

Our goal is to help you succeed in the course and with your new, practical, real-world coding skills. We offer help from instructors who are happy to answer your coding questions even after the course ends. Also, if you feel that you need to repeat the course to gain a better understanding of Python principles, you can do so at no charge.

    Thalo Menninga was an excellent instructor, very helpful and easy to work with which makes is easy and fun to learn. Thalo was always willing to help and walk thru explanations without giving the answer. I learned so much in the 3 sessions and would recommend Thalo as an instructor
