This course is designed to take you from a complete beginner in programming all the way to becoming an effective programmer that can use Python to solve real tasks! I'm Jose Portilla and I am the most popular Python instructor on the Udemy platform. I've taught Python programming at Fortune 500 companies and I'm very excited to bring the same quality of material to Udemy! Python is used by some of the world's largest companies to accomplish all kinds of tasks.
This course is also completely different than any other course on Udemy, it incorporates a narrative story that helps engage students and also provides context to the different tasks you have to accomplish. We utilize project based learning to effectively teach Python and give you the skills to put Python on your resume. We have numerous projects and tasks for you to practice what you are learning.
In addition to this we have Question and Answer forums where Teaching Assistants and myself are present to help answer any questions you may have, we also have a chat channel where you can talk to other students to team up on your own projects!
