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 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.

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

Then jump to this one

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.

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)

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.

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:
