About the Course

If you do not yet code and want to learn, this course is a great place to start. It will teach you how to use existing Python code to interact with data on the Internet in fun new ways. Instruction focuses on the conceptual basics of the programming language as it relates to working with online data. You'll be introduced to Python arithmetic operators, variables, values, and modules. At a higher level, you'll experience what an API is and how it works by playing with cat memes. Separate from the technical part of coding, there's the psychological part. Topic lectures will address the human side of code, and make you feel more prepared to see yourself as someone who uses code. You won’t code from scratch yourself, but will use prepared code to accomplish tasks and see how it works. Additional code demonstrations are available in the honors module of the course to provide broad exposure to Python interactions with internet data....

The professor is great but I really wish the Language Demo was put in the right week. Also wasted a lot of time trying to copy the boilerplate into Jupyter Notebook itself. I wasn't (from what I could tell) informed to just "run" the code within the page. The concepts were conveyed well in small steps for the most part. Would recommend once you know what's going on but it was really frustrating starting out.
