Cons

    • It's on YouTube. That means it's free, and you can go through any segment as often as you like.
    • Taught by Corey Schafer, a well-respected coding educator.
    • Includes comprehensive tutorial for setting up Python on Mac and Windows.
    • Takes first timers through a surprisingly comprehensive process of mastering the fundamentals of Python.
    • It's on YouTube, so interaction with the instructor or peers is limited.
    • Average video length is over 20 minutes. It can be a little more difficult to plan lessons around a busy schedule.
    • Because the course caters to Mac and Windows, it splits focus and reduces the total amount of relevant content for any one student.
