Learn Python Programming Masterclass

Whether you want to:

- build the skills you need to get your first Python programming job

- move to a more senior software developer position

- get started with Machine Learning, Data Science, Django or other hot areas that Python specialises in

- or just learn Python to be able to create your own Python apps quickly.

…then you need a solid foundation in Python programming. And this course is designed to give you those core skills, fast.

This course is aimed at complete beginners who have never programmed before, as well as existing programmers who want to increase their career options by learning Python.

The fact is, Python is one of the most popular programming languages in the world – Huge companies like Google use it in mission critical applications like Google Search.

And Python is the number one language choice for machine learning, data science and artificial intelligence. To get those high paying jobs you need an expert knowledge of Python, and that’s what you will get from this course.

By the end of the course you’ll be able to apply in confidence for Python programming jobs. And yes, this applies even if you have never programmed before. With the right skills which you will learn in this course, you can become employable and valuable in the eyes of future employers.

Here’s what a few students have told us about the course after going through it.

“I had very limited programming experience before I started this course, so I have really learned a lot from the first few sections. It has taken me from essentially zero programming skill to a level where I'm comfortable using Python to analyze data for my lab reports, and I'm not even halfway done the course yet. There are other courses out there which focus on data analysis, but those courses are usually targeted at people who already know how to program which is why I chose this course instead. “ – Christian DiMaria “I have been puttering through your Python course . In that time, though, and without finishing it yet I've been able to automate quite a bit at my work. I work in a school system and unifying data from our various student information systems can be incredibly frustrating, time consuming, and at times challenging. Using your course, I've learned enough to write applications that turn massive text files into dictionaries that get "stitched" together like a database and output to properly formatted CSV files and then uploaded via SFTP to various systems for secure processing. Our teachers, students, and the tech department have greatly benefitted from this automation. I just wanted to drop you a note thanking you for helping me learn this skill.” – Keith Medlin “This course was great. Within 3 weeks I was able to write my own database related applications.” – Theo Coenen And there are many more students who love the course – check out all the reviews for yourself.

Will this course give you core python skills?

Yes it will. There are a range of exciting opportunities for Python developers. All of them require a solid understanding of Python, and that’s what you will learn in this course.

Will the course teach me data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence?

No, it won’t do that – All of these topics are branches of Python programming. And all of them require a solid understanding of the Python language.

Nearly all courses on these topics assume that you understand Python, and without it you will quickly become lost and confused.

This course will give you that core, solid understanding of the Python programming language.

By the end of the course you will be ready to apply for Python programming positions as well as move on to specific areas of Python, as listed above.

Why should you take this course?

There are a lot of Python courses on Udemy – Your instructors, Tim and Jean-Paul are pretty unique in that between them they have around 70 years of professional programming experience. That’s more than a lifetime of skills you get to learn Python from.

You can enrol in the course safe in the knowledge that they are not just teachers, but professional programmers with real commercial programming experience, having worked with big companies like IBM, Mitsubishi, Fujitsu and Saab in the past.

As such you will not only be learning Python, but you will be learning industry best practices for Python programming that real employers demand.

And if that’s not enough take a read of some of the many reviews from happy students – there are around 100,000 students who have left around 19,000 reviews.

This is one of the most popular courses on Python programming on Udemy.

Here’s just some of what you’ll learn

(It’s okay if you don’t understand all this yet, you will in the course)

· All the essential Python keywords, operators, statements, and expressions needed to fully understand exactly what you’re coding and why - making programming easy to grasp and less frustrating

· You will learn the answers to questions like What is the Python For Loop, what is Python used for, how Python switch the traditional syntax of code, and more.

· Complete chapters on object-oriented programming and many other aspects of Python, including tKInter (for building GUI Interfaces) and using databases with Python.

· Although this is primarily a Python 3 course, a python developer will need to work with Python 2 projects from time to time – We’ll show the difference in both versions to make sure you understand how things work differently in each version.

· How to develop powerful Python applications using one of the most powerful Integrated Development Environments on the market, IntelliJ IDEA. - Meaning you can code functional programs easier. IntelliJ has both a FREE and PAID version, and you can use either in this course. PyCharm will also work just fine.

(Don’t worry if you want to use another IDE. You’re free to use any IDE and still get the most out of this course). Does the course get updated?

It’s no secret how technology is advancing at a rapid rate. New, more powerful hardware and software are being released every day, meaning it’s crucial to stay on top with the latest knowledge. A lot of other courses on Udemy get released once, and never get updated. Learning from an outdated course and/or an outdated version of Python can be counter productive and even worse it could teach you the wrong way to do things.

For example if you apply some parts of Python 2 to Python 3 code, you will get completely different results.

We cover differences like this in the course and also continually update the course as well.

What if you have questions?

As if this course wasn’t complete enough, we offer full support, answering any questions you have 7 days a week (whereas many instructors answer just once per week, or not at all).

This means you’ll never find yourself stuck on one lesson for days on end. With our hand-holding guidance, you’ll progress smoothly through this course without any major roadblocks.

That’s just one reason why Tim was voted top 10 in the Udemy instructor awards (out of a whopping 18,000 instructors), and quickly became a top-rated, bestselling instructor on the Udemy site.

Student Quote: “Tim and JP are excellent teachers and are constantly answering questions and surveying students on new topics they will like to learn. This isn't a Python course it’s THE Python course you need.” – Sean Burger

There’s no risk either.

This course comes with a full 30 day money-back guarantee. Meaning if you are not completely satisfied with the course or your progress, simply let Tim or J-P know and they will refund you 100%, every last penny no questions asked.

You either end up with Python skills, go on to develop great programs and potentially make an awesome career for yourself, or you try the course and simply get all your money back if you don’t like it…

You literally can’t lose.

What people are saying

step by step

Very good instructions, very easy to follow along step by step.

Working through step by step is great and with the shorter videos helps me to manager my learning after work and between looking after the kids.

I like the tone of the course and the way that we're led step by step through each process.

Yes totally elaborated each and every point about the videos and the things that i gonna do while watching further videos This course has been a good match for me so far because I find asking questions to be helpful and the videos explain it really well and step by step.

I am happy everything is explained step by step.

things are going hard ... and little fast...not able to understand Go step by step and you will never get lost.

step by step understanding which is great as a beginner!

But, as it goes seems like I will be in an expert following this step by step.

thanks for step by step instructions.

This could have been improved by adding a simplified problem solving approach by granulating the entire solution in one session and then developing the system step by step.

haven't written code in 27 years... this step by step process is just what I was hoping for.

yes, easy to follow How can one describe a step by step training other than awesome?

Very clearly explained and step by step guidance.

Immediately after the challenge the instructor walks you through a possible solution to challenge as well as provides a detailed step by step explanation of why things were done a certain way.

knows his stuff

He knows his stuff and delivers confidently the "Python good".

The teacher *really* knows his stuff.

Tim obviously knows his stuff.

He will give you everything that you need to know, and he definitely knows his stuff!

Knows his stuff, but damn he moves quickly.

Teacher knows his stuff and has a good teaching style.

Tim is easy to listen too, presents the content really well and obviously knows his stuff!!

However I like the pace of the lectures so far, they are lively and Tim obviously knows his stuff.

Finding it little faster, but will try to catch the pace you explain it very nicely Tim clearly knows his stuff.

great it's good So Far So Good..... clear precise instructions Instructor knows his stuff Slowly getting the point.

object oriented programming

As an example, the authors obsess over examples using tkinter before coming to object oriented programming.

Good overview of object oriented programming (OOP).

Thank you so much good explanations at the start of the course but as the course progressed explanations became very unclear catching up with the instructor was difficult , sometimes instructor just delivered the concepts without even explaning all the methods that he has used in the code Very good intro to python and does a great job going over object oriented programming.

The database and object oriented programming parts are good, including the HtmlDoc example, where the instructor mentions differences between python and other object oriented languages, such as Java or C++.

Already understanding programming myself being a master of visual basic makes it easier to understand object oriented programming.

prior coding experience

The jargon used in other videos/courses can be a bit confusing, even with some prior coding experience.

It has a lot of content and most of it is well explained, but I see the same problem with this course as the instructor's Java course, in that sometimes when he's explaining a new concept, he just focuses on typing code and leaves explanation for later, which is fine for those with prior coding experience but for newer coders, we just blindly follow his code and hope to understand Pros: - A lot of good content - Great response time - Great structure and very helpful videos to ensure everyone call follow, regardless of Python version/OS CON: - The only reason I deduct a star it is often quite difficult to understand what Tim is saying in 2x.

No prior coding experience required.

Coming from someone with no prior coding experience, the lessons are (so far) engaging and easy to follow!

no prior knowledge

It starts from the real beginning, assuming no prior knowledge This python course is perfect.

So far the course assumes that you have no prior knowledge which has been very helpful.

I would reccomend it to those who have no prior knowledge to python The course is intense, and it moves at quite the fast pace but so far it is the easiest course I've taken.

If you have no prior knowledge on coding Tim explains everything very well.

exchange rates

The exchange rates site is currently unavailable, please try again later.

it was good can u gone in depth in coding.It will be really helpful Easier to understand The exchange rates weren't could be graphed from the file downloaded.

File exchange rates, at first saving in HTML and I cant find him and cant opened .

Not the fault of the course, but the Installation of the tool and plugin took a while to figure out - it should mention that I need the community plugin The course takes off smoothly and I particularly appreciate the example program which shows the exchange rates.

clear with good explanation It's good except that I had issues downloading the exchange rates file into a python file rather than an html file.

Last code for the exchange rates did not work though.

mr. buchalka

Thank you Udemy and Mr. Buchalka This course has given me an edge over other students, where I could learn so much about python.

I like mr. Buchalka's teaching way, I can't wait to see the results of my progress at the end of the course :) BUT: I find very tiring that he uses the same programm for 5-6 videos.

Mr. Buchalka is very clear while teaching every concept and the only complaint I have is that sometimes he tends to talk a bit fast and I need to pause in between to fully register what he has said.

I like the Udemy platform for learning, and I enjoy Mr. Buchalka's teaching style.

I often search for Mr. Buchalka's name when looking for new learning material.

Mr. Buchalka not only carries himself well, but professionally.

Great job, Mr. Buchalka.

dictionaries Great energy Mr. Buchalka The course is a good introduction.

months ago

I rated this course 5 stars nine months ago and if I could I would now rate it 6 stars.

I completed Tim's Java course a few months ago and found it incredibly useful (started Java from scratch).

I wanted to learn coding months ago started with the solo learn app on my phone and I kinda got bored my friend told me he got the course for a discount and just with conversations with him I started to get interested again and even learn and I didn't even have the course the sale was almost off and I finally gave in and I'm already learning more than I did in a few weeks of other types that I have tried I am an experienced programmer but new to Python.

I made a comment 2 months ago about adding in f string in the in the video and still not up to date.

I bought a course teaching Python a couple months ago, but I just did not like the teaching method whatsoever.

He is showing python 2 formatting (which is obsolete) and python 3 formatting is incorrect as of two months ago.

I tried this course 5 months ago.

differences between

Very crisp explanations it is a little too slow and too much hours So far I have now understood some basics which I was unclear about, I am only 12% through the course The introductory courses are reinforcing my prior learning regarding coding practices while educating me on the differences between Python and the languages I studied previously.

Additionally, Tim has a STRONG UNDERSTANDING of programming languages and will describe differences between Java, Smalltalk, and other languages as they compare to python.

He also teaches the differences between Python 2 and Python 3, but he focuses his course on Python 3 code.

I like how everything is explained clearly, especially the differences between python 2 and 3.
