About the Course

This course introduces the basics of Python 3, including conditional execution and iteration as control structures, and strings and lists as data structures. You'll program an on-screen Turtle to draw pretty pictures. You'll also learn to draw reference diagrams as a way to reason about program executions, which will help to build up your debugging skills. The course has no prerequisites. It will cover Chapters 1-9 of the textbook "Fundamentals of Python Programming," which is the accompanying text (optional and free) for this course. The course is for you if you're a newcomer to Python programming, if you need a refresher on Python basics, or if you may have had some exposure to Python programming but want a more in-depth exposition and vocabulary for describing and reasoning about programs. This is the first of five courses in the Python 3 Programming Specialization....

It's a must join course for the people who want to deep dive into the world of Python. I really loving this course very much. I wanna explore more hence opting for other parts of this specialization.

Highly recommended for beginners who want to learn python. There is also a practice method and assignments which helped a lot. The Codelens helps us to understand what really is happening.

I enrolled this course just after completing Python for everybody.

The e-textbook provided was slightly user unfriendly, but otherwise the course was helpful for new programming learners.

The python basics course is pretty awesome that even a person from non programming background will find it easy to learn and is more practical with the codelens and builtin code editors.
