Want to Learn How to Code? Start Here

If you've been following along on a little series I've had here on the blog, you will know that recently I've been looking into ways to improve my coding skills. It started off with Things I wish I Knew (Coding Edition), followed by Things I Wish I Knew - Progress, and then A New Coding Course if you would like to check out the timeline of events.

Well, I am proud to say that I have officially completed the Python for Everybody course this past weekend, and, if you want to learn how to program, I would highly recommend taking this class. The videos are broken up into manageable chunks, the lessons aren't too long, and Chuck Severance goes through all the topics extremely well. If you take an hour out of your day to go through a lesson or two, you would be up and running in no time.

Topics Covered:

  • Functions, variables, expressions, loops, strings, & conditions (basics of programming)
  • Working with files
  • Lists & Dictionaries
  • Tuples (which I thought was pronounced with a toop and not a tup)
  • Regular Expressions
  • Networks
  • Web Services & APIs
  • Object Orient Programming
  • Databases
  • Some data visualization
