What you’ll learn in this Python course for beginners

You will learn to program in modern Python 3 and learn and understand the basics. This course is not of the “learn Python in 1 hour” type, simply because you can’t properly learn Python in one hour (or even ten hours).

  1. We’ll start our journey with some context, history, and the installation of Python itself.
  2. Then we’ll dive into the language basics: operators, conditional programming, loops, and the most important data types.
  3. I’ll help you install VS Code, a professional code editor, and show you how to configure and use it for Python programming.
  4. You’ll learn about objects and classes (the core of how Python works)
  5. We’ll create an application (the end project) to put what you’ve learned into practice.

My focus is to help you understand what you’re doing and how things work. After this Python course for beginners, you will have the knowledge and tools to continue your journey into more advanced topics, like data science. This course provides a solid basis for several follow-up courses.

Will the course stay the same after my purchase?

We continuously update the Python course for beginners to reflect the latest developments in Python. We promptly fix mistakes and issues brought to our attention. You will keep your lifetime access to this course and all its improvements.

Is there a refund policy?

Yes. If you don’t like the course, I’ll refund your money if you ask me within five days of your initial purchase. Refunds are limited to one refund per person per course.

Which OS do I need for this course?

You can follow the course on Windows, MacOS, and Linux. We’ll be using the freely available Visual Studio Code editor, which you can download for all three platforms, but if you strongly prefer another editor, you should be fine too. If you are unsure whether you can install and run Python on your computer, you might want to try installing it before buying the course.

Can I follow this course on a mobile phone or tablet?

Yes. The course system will work fine on mobile phones or tablets and adapt to smaller screens. However, some of the code examples might be harder to read. Also, you need a PC with a Python installation to get the actual practice. So yes, you can read the theory and do quizzes on a mobile phone, but I strongly recommend a PC for the best experience.

What experience level is required to follow this course?

This Python course for beginners is suitable for those with no programming experience. You don’t need extra material or previously completed courses because this course is self-contained. I’ll walk you through all the steps, including installing Python and a suitable editor. In addition, I designed this course so that both complete beginners and those with some prior experience can benefit. You need a basic understanding of how to work with computers and how computers work.

How long will it take to finish the course?

It depends on your experience level, the effort you put into the exercises, extra material/links, etc. As a very rough guideline, you will spend about 40 hours before finishing the course.

Can I try it before I buy it?

Yes, you can! See below. There are several sample lessons open for everyone to see and try. In addition, there’s a refund policy that should give you some piece of mind.
