In Introduction to Python, we will start at the beginning: Installing python 3 and using virtual environments. With a working environment, we will learn how to manipulate strings and numbers, and gain working knowledge of data structures and flow control. We will build on that by introducing modules and classes and learn how to interact with our python applications using command line switches, console input and files.

At the end of this course, you’ll have a great working knowledge of Python, fully capable of creating your own Python projects from scratch or jumping into an existing application with the capability to read, understand, and contribute to the application.

    How will you use what you learned from this collection?

    I am a complete beginner. These lessons move really fast. The explanations encourage further research but everything is easy to follow along with and figure out. I have tried multiple sites to try learning and this has been by far the most different from things like codecademy et.. I still feel confused but I know that with repeat I will eventually get there.

    What would make this course a 7 for you?

    Love that the course touched upon Logging, Exception Handling best practices (albeit briefly) and sets.

    Overall great refresher for people coming from Python 2 land and even programmers new to Python.
