“I always have fears to do coding. My friend recommended this "Python Immersive" one-week camp. The instructor, Thalo, is great at explaining the concepts. Especially, he is very patient and helpful. I strongly recommend this camp to those who want to learn Python coding from A to Z.”

“Taking the python immersive class with Tim was a great experience. I feel have strong foundation from which to keep learning and progress with the projects that interest me. So, if you want to get started coded and are waffling on a decision of which school to attend, pick this one. :)”

“Stephen was an awesome instructor (even with the course being online). He appropriately paces the material and doesn't make you feel small for asking seemingly simple questions. I would definitely take this class again!”

“I recommend this course to anyone looking to get into programming or those looking to sharpen their skills. I had zero experience with python before the course and the instructor was both patient enough to work with me yet still love the course flowing for the more advanced members.”

He was extremely helpful with any questions or topics that you may have a hard time understanding. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who is interested in learning python, whether as a beginner or an experienced coder.”

“I took this class online with Thalo. He is an excellent teacher and very patient and thorough. I learned more than I could have hoped and also saw a great example of what online teaching can be Highly recommend.”

“I can't say enough about my experience with the Practical Programming instructors as well as the core curriculum in the Python Immersive & Python Programming for Data Science. These courses have been life changing to my current career and will be beneficial to any career I may have in the future. Thalo has been my instructor for both cohorts. Not only is he exceptionally knowledgeable but he is incredibly patient when going through the material-it's not easy but he makes it palatable, dare I say fun. Thalo truly takes the time to work with you, even taking you through pseudocode if need be for the material to sink in. I highly recommend Practical Programming courses to anyone that works with data or looking for a career change. These cohorts will get you to where you need to be.”

“Well worth the money. The course was challenging and relevant, and I will definitely consider taking more courses at Practical Programming. Art does a great job meeting everyone at their level and making sure that everyone feels challenged.”

“Python for Data Science Immersive is a great course for anyone trying to get started in Python, specifically in pandas and numpy. Art is a great instructor with a plethora of resources that remain available to you after the course is over. Highly recommend this course for anyone needing a crash course on Python.”

“Art is great. Very generous with time and knowledge and truly helpful. Great if you have no programming knowledge or if you're a more advanced student. The course is thorough and applies exercises to real-life examples. Will take again and highly recommend!”

“I did the week-long Python for Data Science Immersive Bootcamp in Chicago. The course is structured as a small-group lab, so it's easy to stay engaged and you get a lot of hands-on experience coding. The instructor, Thalo, was an exceptional teacher and was very adaptive to the class. We got to spend time working on problems relevant for our jobs. Highly recommend!”

“I started learning python on an online platform almost a year ago and felt that I had completely players like plateaued. I loved the Python immersive course and was able to learn much more in a week than I had on my own over the span of around 8 months. I now I feel fully confident in my ability to continue my python learning independently and I know where to turn when I'm ready to enroll in my next programming course.”

“I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking to gain some knowledge with Python. Thalo(course instructor) is the man! He explains things really well and shows great examples throughout his explanation. Again I highly recommend it.”

“I participated in the weeklong intro to Python course and it was great! the instructor, Thalo, is a great teacher and very patient/diligent in helping you. I would definitely recommend this course (and Practical Programming in general) to any beginner or novice interested in learning how to program.”

“Really enjoyed the class! Art has a ton of experience in teaching the basics of python to people who have no previous coding experience. The class format is great - we start with lectures and go right into practice problems to use what we just learned. 100% would recommended!”
