Python: Essential Course for Absolute Beginners

Video Description

Python is a beautiful and complex language. But the truth is you don’t need to learn all of it to start building applications. And this is what this course is about. In about two hours we will teach you the essential parts of Python that you need to know to start using web frameworks, data science or artificial intelligence. But don’t be fooled, we’re not cutting corners in this course. It is packed full of really complex stuff, but taught in a way that you will understand, even without having coded anything before. We will start by learning about variables, strings, lists, loops and conditionals, then move on to functions, object oriented programming with classes and objects, modules and packages and round it all up with an introduction to unit testing.
