Do you want to learn Python? Our huge new course, Learn to Code With Python, is the only guide you'll need.
With over seven hours of video covering a wide array of Python topics from the basic building blocks of the language right through to more advanced techniques, this comprehensive Python course will take you from Python newbie to master in no time.
What You’ll Learn
Python is a powerful language that is easy to learn and excels at many different types of computing. Not only that, but with a simple, expressive syntax, Python doesn't have the gotchas and edge cases that make some other languages hard to learn.
In this course, instructor Derek Jenson will help you to learn to start coding with the Python language. You'll start with the very basics to lay a solid foundation for future learning. Then, you'll go deeper, learning more advanced ways of manipulating data with commonly used data structures.
Later on, Derek will share some pointers with you about how to get data in and out of files and even store complex data structures in them. Finally, you'll learn about some of Python's powerful built-in networking features to write code that can talk to other computers on the internet.

Introduction to the Interpreter
One of the coolest parts of Python is the interactive shell that comes with it. With this little gem you can experiment and practice with new Python concepts before you even dig into writing Python code in a text editor.
Conditional statements allow you to add some more flair to your applications and manage their flow. In this video, you'll learn how to use the
What Are Comprehensions?
As you continue to work with the Python language, you will find that often many roads lead to the same destination. The art is in finding which way works better for you.
Comprehensions are one of those alternate routes. Think of a comprehension as a shorthand way to create collections such as lists, dictionaries, and sets. In this video you'll see just how useful they are for cutting out a lot of extraneous code.
