About the Course

The goal of the course is to introduce students to Python Version 3.x programming using hands on instruction. It will show how to install Python and use the Spyder IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for writing and debugging programs. The approach will be to present an example followed by a small exercise where the learner tries something similar to solidify a concept. At the end of each module there will be an exercise where the student is required to write simple programs and submit them for grading. It is intended for students with little or no programming background, although students with such a background should be able to move forward at their preferred pace. The course is four modules long and is designed to be completed in four weeks. SPECIAL NOTE: Python Programming: A Concise Introduction course will close for new learner enrollment on 2/16/22. In order to earn a Course Certificate, you will need to complete all graded assignments by 8/16/22. If you are interested in earning a Course Certificate for this course, please upgrade or apply for Financial Aid by 8/16/22. If you are a Coursera for Business learner, you can continue to use your sponsored credit through that date....

The course's great. Just one problem is that the lector's voice sounds kind of depressed, which is disturbing.

Excellent if you want to know the basics but doesn't really scratch the surface of what Python is capable of.

the Last homework it's a litle difficult (problem4_4), because the code is to build a code in other code.

More trouble shooting techniques or steps can be given as it is tough sometimes when one is new to coding

Good course. Thanks for the materials. Wish the sound quality was a little better, but that's nit-picky.

Great course for the beginner like me, but I think the scope of the course was a bit narrow.
