About the Course

Learning Python gives the programmer a wide variety of career paths to choose from. Python is an open-source (free) programming language that is used in web programming, data science, artificial intelligence, and many scientific applications. Learning Python allows the programmer to focus on solving problems, rather than focusing on syntax. Its relative size and simplified syntax give it an edge over languages like Java and C++, yet the abundance of libraries gives it the power needed to accomplish great things. In this tutorial you will create a guessing game application that pits the computer against the user. You will create variables, decision constructs, and loops in python to create the game. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions....

The course was at it best with a visual studio python a learner could learn easily with it and I found it very interesting as I could write and run the program just while learning itself.

The hands on guided project will help you to understand the code and how python works and instructor teaching is really good. I understand every single thing which teaches in this course.

This is supposed to be an beginner course -- right? However, this course assumes that you are already a data scientist! The Professor rarely describes why a certain move is necessary. He does describe the tasks necessary to create the "guessing game application", such as Variables, Decision Constructs, Looping and Functions. The Prof. mumbles and moves quickly through the module on Rhyme -- the black screen renders it difficult to see. Anyhow, I am very impressed by the Prof's knowledge and how quickly he is able to move around on the black screen in Rhyme. I am a beginning computer programmer and should have never signed up with someone, who is miles ahead and leaves a beginner in the dust. I love Coursera and just finished a Certificate in Contact Tracing. I am desperately trying to figure out as to how to unsubscribe from this course, since I do not wish to be graded clearly above my pay grade. Thank you for your understanding!

This guided project is very interesting to learn after having some little bit conception about python, The instructor started from the very beginning though. So, i think apprentices those are new to python language, it would be very helpful course for them to make their knowledge more robust about python

Great class for the absolute beginner (like me). It was clear and concise and I appreciate that you are able to run a simple game at the end of the course. Thank you!

Excellent course. First time I do a guided project. I have learned by doing and following the instructor's instructions. In a short time the knowledge imparted was assimilated.

This course was pretty challenging yet it was fun to take the lab simultaneously to apply the knowledge gained by the lecture.

It seems like you're asking for a general introduction or overview of Python. Python is a high-level, interpreted programming language known for its readability and simplicity. Here are some key points about Python: Readability: Python's syntax is designed to be readable and clear. It uses indentation to indicate blocks of code, making it visually distinctive. Versatility: Python is a versatile language used in various domains, including web development, data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, automation, and more. Interpreted Language: Python is an interpreted language, which means that it does not need to be compiled before execution. This makes development and debugging faster. Object-Oriented: Python supports object-oriented programming, encapsulation, and inheritance. It allows developers to structure their code in a modular and reusable way. Dynamic Typing: Python is dynamically typed, meaning you don't need to specify the data type of a variable when you declare it. This can lead to more concise code. Large Standard Library: Python comes with a large standard library that includes modules and packages for various purposes, making it easy to perform tasks without having to write a lot of code from scratch. Community and Ecosystem: Python has a large and active community of developers. This has led to a rich ecosystem of libraries and frameworks that extend Python's capabilities for specific purposes.
