Learn Python 3 Programming from Scratch

Crash course on Python 3 for beginners

This course teaches you the foundations to write simple Python 3 programs using the most common structures. Python 3 is the most up-to-date version of the language, with many improvements to increase the Python code’s efficiency and simplicity. No previous exposure to programming is needed. By the end of this course, you’ll understand the benefits of programming and be able to write simple programs using Python. We’ll start by diving into the basics of writing a computer program. Using some examples, the course quickly builds up basic concepts such as conditionals, loops, functions, lists, strings and tuples. As far as data structures are concerned, the course covers Python dictionaries, classes etc. Along the way, you’ll get hands-on experience with programming concepts through projects and quizzes. The course is for you if you’re a newcomer to Python programming, if you need a refresher on Python basics, or if you may have had some exposure to Python programming but want a more in-depth exposition and vocabulary for describing and reasoning about programs. Happy learning.
