This course has an audit option: hit the Enroll button, then look under the Start Free Trial button for a small link that says “audit this course “.

I don't have any experience with the course you mentioned, but if you are looking for beginner python courses, this one from Google is also a good one:

I really liked Python for Everybody's or Crash course on python sections on objects. Made it clear for me. The teacher also has a good YouTube channel if you don't want to go through a MOOC.

If you click on the course, and click on Enroll then you'll see an Audit option like in this picture. Don't click on the Enroll from the IT specialization webpage.

My recommendation is to start with this one to get familiar with syntax

Then jump to this one

You could save money and do something free/cheaper online that will be just as good and more practical. Especially if you want it as a job skill.

Python for Beginners, Google Certification

Python for Business

Hello. Hope ok to piggy ride on OP's question.

I am 50+ y.o. and have just begun to learn Python (no previous programming exp.) Yes, I have a SMART objective (is related to scraping real estate-related info. from public websites).

My questions include:

I just began the Google Python Crash Course mainly cause I had it offered to me for free. I wonder if this is the best intro course or if there is an overwhelming preference for another one.

I have been using the Python shell. Should I stop using it and stick to your suggestion, ipython?

What do you mean by "regularly refactor the code"?

Anyone else that feels inclined to do so, I appreciate your replies as well. Thank you all.

Its this one:


The code itself is relatively easy to understand. It's just that the assignments and tests are doing my head in with all these complex mathematical problems.

I took it last fall and had zero experience too; the main problem is that half of the term is wasted doing Beeper-bot, which has zero value in coding.

However, if you just want a simple coding course, which gives you an insight into what coding is, its fine i guess.

In hindsight, I feel I would have rather spent some time on this coursera course.

I guess I only have the python notes. DM me if it would be of use to you.

Other courses/books people recommend:

  1. Automate the boring stuffs with python (both ebook and udemy course)
  2. The hitchhiker's guide to python
  3. CS 50

All free courses: Started w/ this one - it's good but gets really difficult towards the end:

I loved this one but it was good I took the Google one above first to really understand what was going on:

I'm taking this one now - he goes really quick which is fine since it's my third course going over a lot of the same concepts:

start with coursera, audit a curse for free, he will get all the knowledge and if he wants a certificate he can pay for the course to get one.
for beginners i recommend the course:

Hey! I hope this would help. Sure cs50x it is a great course and it is highly recommended to start with cs50x. However as you said you want to focus on python, here there is a point when you want to consider other options and make your own conclusions:

- first take a look at Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python. that intro to cs like cs50x by using python. Course is awesome kinda hard.

- But if just want to learn python just enough to jump into the AI course you could do the Python part from CS50x: CS50 2019 - Lecture 6 - Python or do another course of python e.g. Crash Course on Python by Google.

- Finally take a look to this cs50x lecture cs50 Lecture 8 - Information where DJM review the course and give feedback about the tracks. Also this community is recommended learn programming where you are going to find more resources for your learning path.

Looking forward to a python course on coursera.

Looking to learn overall basics + grab some context of data science using python.

This my shortlist -



Any suggestions on which of the above should I choose? I don't seem to understand the difference between these (as I am yet to start with Python)

There are plenty of resources online. I do recommend you to create a profile in coursera and edx platforms. Most of the courses can be followed for free (the audit mode).

You can start with these courses:
