This two-part course is designed to help students with very little or no computing background learn the basics of building simple interactive applications. Our language of choice, Python, is an easy-to learn, high-level computer language that is used in many of the computational courses offered on Coursera. To make learning Python easy, we have developed a new browser-based programming environment that makes developing interactive applications in Python simple. These applications will involve windows whose contents are graphical and respond to buttons, the keyboard and the mouse.
This course is part of the Fundamentals of Computing Specialization

TOP REVIEWS FROM AN INTRODUCTION TO INTERACTIVE PROGRAMMING IN PYTHON (PART 2)
It's quite interesting and completing every mini project will give me great sense of achivements. But I think it can be more challenging if the templates were less detailed.
This is an excellent program; the pace is rigorous but the instruction is thorough. The peer-review component forces you to read code and learn through greater exposure. Excellent.
Apart from giving me a pay raise, this specialization is making a huge difference in terms of how much of cleaner code I write and how much of clearer thinking I do before starting to code.
lectures were pretty clear, and the game projects were a very smart way to keep learning fun and challenging. Code clinics were very useful and gave me the push I needed to do everything on myown.
