TOP REVIEWS FROM PROGRAMMING FOR EVERYBODY (GETTING STARTED WITH PYTHON)
Great teacher Chuck and obviously a great course for people just starting out with programming. Well paced. The suggested timings for the assignments were a bit off, I think, but well, that's just me.
Extremely well laid out curriculum, to the point videos and excellent book. Built my confidence level to clear the course. Thanks Dr.Chuck for all the hard work and diligence to support the community.
After trying tutorial after tutorial and exploring many different resources to learn Python, I have finally found one that works! This is a very fun course, and the free textbook is simply incredible.
The course content is well-organized that makes students easy to follow, but there is limited amount of examples and exercises for students to learn how to apply the knowledge in real world situation.
