Course Description

Updated in November 2018 to include SQL + Python!
Welcome to the Modern Python 3 Bootcamp! I've launched my fair share of Udemy courses, but I've never done anything quite this crazy.
This course is a unique experience on Udemy. There are dozens of existing Python courses you can choose from, but this course is the only one that has nearly 200 interactive challenges you can complete right here in your browser. I didn't just tack on a couple of exercises at the end; this course is fully built around the coding exercises. This course is all about getting you writing code ASAP, rather than sitting back watching a bunch of videos.
In development, I referred to this course as a hybrid between a typical Udemy course and an interactive Codecademy-style course. You get over 25 hours of in-depth videos and my dumb jokes along with meticulously created exercises and quizzes to test your knowledge as you go.
Many of the older Python courses still focus on Python 2. This course is all about writing the most modern, up-to-date Python code, so Python 3 was the obvious choice. The course covers all the latest additions and changes to the Python language. The course also places a large emphasis on thinking like a Python developer, and writing code the "Pythonic" way.
As for the curriculum, This course teaches all the key topics covered by other Python courses, but also covers more advanced topics like web scraping, crawling, and testing, just to name a few. Please feel free to explore the curriculum and watch some of the free preview videos!
Python is consistently ranked in either first or second place as the most in-demand programming languages across the job market. It has applications in data science, machine learning, web development, self-driving cars, automation, and many many other disciplines. There has never been a better time to learn it!

I'm spent years teaching people to program at in-person bootcamps in the San Francisco Bay Area. In recent years, I've started bringing my methods from the classroom to the online world. In my first year teaching online, I was selected as the Best Newcomer Instructor in the Udemy Instructor Awards 2015. I'm passionate about making the best possible online learning experiences that mirror my in-person courses.
If you want to take ONE COURSE to master Python take this course.
Who this course is for:
  • Anyone who wants to learn Python.
  • Anyone who is curious about data science, machine learning, or web development
  • Anyone who wants to get tons of practice with the interactive exercises.

Instructor Details

Colt Steele

Hi! I'm Colt. I'm a developer with a serious love for teaching. I've spent the last few years teaching people to program at 2 different immersive bootcamps where I've helped hundreds of people become web developers and change their lives. My graduates work at companies like Google, Salesforce, and Square.
Most recently, I led Galvanize's SF's 6 month immersive program as Lead Instructor and Curriculum Director. After graduating from my class, 94% of my students went on to receive full-time developer roles. I also worked at Udacity as a Senior Course Developer on the web development team where I got to reach thousands of students daily.
I've since focused my time on bringing my classroom teaching experience to an online environment. In 2016 I launched my Web Developer Bootcamp course, which has since gone on to become one of the best selling and top rated courses on Udemy. I was also voted Udemy's Best New Instructor of 2016.
I've spent years figuring out the "formula" to teaching technical skills in a classroom environment, and I'm really excited to finally share my expertise with you. I can confidently say that my online courses are without a doubt the most comprehensive ones on the market.
Join me on this crazy adventure!

Colt is a great teacher. All the explanation was very comprehensive even for a novice as myself.Thank you Colt for opening my world for development

I am more than happy to add another five star review to this course. Colt as in instructor is awesome. The amount of work put into this course is mind blowing. Hands down the best course I've done on Udemy. Excited to continue my python journey!

Started my path to becoming a programmer a couple of months ago and I always end up coming back to this course for a quick refresher on a couple of topics.I've purchased a few other Python courses, but none go in as much detail as Colt's does nor do they come with as many examples.

Colt is a great communicator and a very talented instructor, and provided a great introduction to the basics of Python. I came away from this course feeling like the first two-thirds gave me a very solid foundation as a complete beginner in Python; my only reason for dropping a half-star is that for whatever reason, the last third of the course left me behind in terms of comprehension and mastery of the materials and I'm going to try a second Python course to see if I can get those topics to click. For people with just a bit more coding background than I had, however, I doubt this will be an issue. Highly recommend the course overall.

Colt, you did an amazing job here!As a newbie i worked through all of your lessons the last 4 months and i feel i have a good Python knowledge base. Thanks a lot!

You should provide some notes as well, so we can look into it, if we want to look something from the previous videos except watching the whole video again.

This is a great course for getting started with python3. Some parts are lengthy yes but for newbies they are just great.One thing that comes down to personal liking: The author quite often diverts into small stories of his personal life, favorite colors and pets etc. and makes quite a few jokes here and there. I found them a bit disturbing sometimes and in my oppinion the course could have been 3 hours shorter without them.But still a great course, 5 stars.

I am a Computer Science student, currently in the third year of my studies, and took this course in the summer of 2018.In my view, Colt did an excellent job in teaching the fundamentals of Python in plain English, as well as investing time in showing some practical applications; such as web scraping, connecting to an API, using a database to store data and so on.While the course doesn't get too deep with technical information about Python's behind the scenes, fellow CS students should consider that the particular course was built so that anyone who knows how to switch on a computer could learn Python.Personally, whenever I felt like digging deeper (and since I am a pretty curious cat that happened most of the time), I visited a bunch of Stackoverflow threads and coding blogs. It is also worth noting that Python has an incredibly active online community.I strongly recommend this course to anyone who wants to start his or her Python journey.Keep it up Colt, thanks a lot!

Very well taught. The online exercises are really helpful and I cannot always access a computer with python installed, though to learn fully one must practice in python, which I fully intend to. But the online exercises to help gel a lot of the concepts

This course should be treated as a benchmark for all other courses on Udemy. The amount of information is immense and I'm glad the course remains in my possession, because I'm going to be needing some revision sooner or later. I really thought that I could power through this course like I did before with other courses, but the quizzes, coding challenges and quirky jokes (which all were in loving abundance) made sure I had to slow down, and truly understand all the presented concepts. If you want to learn Python, like REALLY want to learn it and you only want one course, than pick this one.

I have several years of experience with other languages and have played with Python before but wanted a formal course just to solidify things. I've taken other courses from Colt and am generally impressed. This was a good course as well.

Colt really goes through each topic so there's no ambiguity or feeling of unsure. This is what I really needed and would recommend to a friend.
