The Python Mega Course

The Python Mega Course is the most practical course you will find on the web today. Here you will earn to build actual desktop programs, web applications, and even mobile apps entirely in Python 3. Here are the 10 apps you are going to develop:

  • English Thesaurus - a program where users can find the word definitions

  • Volcano Web Map - an interactive web map showing volcano locations

  • Personal Website with Python - a website built entirely in Python

  • Bookshop Database App - a desktop GUI app with a database backend

  • Feel Good Mobile App - an Android & iOS app

  • Webcam Motion Detector - starts the webcam and detects moving objects

  • Real Estate Web Scraper - a program that extracts data from webpages

  • Interactive Data Dashboard - a web-based fully interactive graph

  • Database Web App - a web app that collects data & sends emails

  • Geocoder Web App - a web app that converts addresses to coordinates

You will build these Python apps during the course, even if you know nothing about programming. Before starting building the 10 apps, you will first learn the fundamentals of Python programming. If you know Python basics already, you can jump right in with the first app. By building the 10 apps, you will master Python and build your own Python apps. You can also use any of the 10 apps for your portfolio.

You will code the apps, guided step-by-step by straightforward video explanations, and continuous support from the course instructor. If you get stuck, you can ask questions at any time in the Q&A, and the instructor or the teaching assistant will jump in and help you with your questions.

By buying the course, you will gain lifetime access to all of its videos, coding exercises, quizzes, code notebooks, cheat sheets, and the Q&A forum inside the course. On top of that, you are covered by the Udemy 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can easily return the course if you don't like it.

To consider yourself a professional programmer, you need to know how to write professional programs. There's no other course that teaches you that, so join thousands of other students who have successfully applied their Python skills in the real world.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be able to learn Python and find a job after completing this course?

I have heard of quite a few success stories where students have rigorously followed the course and have found a job afterward. However, whether you will be able to learn Python and be job-ready heavily depends on you.

If you merely watch the videos, you will hardly learn anything without trying things on your own computer. Instead, try the code on your computer, change the code, run it, improve it further, rerun it, fix the possible errors, try making a similar app, repeat, ask questions in the Q&A when you get stuck, and try to solve all the exercises in the course. That way, you will undoubtedly learn how to program with Python and find a job.

How much time will I need to complete the course?

That depends on two factors:

(1) Your background: Someone coming from a math or computer science background may be able to complete the course in a shorter time compared to someone coming from a social science background, for example.

(2) The effort you put in: If you simply watch the videos, you may finish the course in two days. However, merely watching the videos is not enough. You need to experiment with the code you see in the videos. The more you experiment with it, the better you become.

Depending on the two factors I mentioned above, students spend from one week to three months to complete the course, most spending one month.

I don't know anything about programming. Will I still be able to learn Python?

This course assumes you have no previous knowledge of programming. Whenever a programming term is mentioned in the class (e.g., a variable), that term is explained thoroughly, so you not only understand how to use that particular term in Python, you also understand what that term means in programming.

Will I get support if I get stuck?

Yes. Feel free to drop a question in the Q&A, and I, or my teaching assistant, will answer your questions within the same day.

Does this course cover Python 2 or Python 3?

Python 3

What IDE/editor is used in the course?

We use Visual Studio Code in the course. However, you can use your favorite IDE. PyCharm, Atom, and even IDLE will work correctly.

Does the course expire?

No. Once you buy the course, it's yours. We update the content regularly, and all the updates come to you for free in the one-time purchase you make.

What people are saying

step by step

Concepts are explained step by step.Awesome experience.

The teacher in the course has a very thorough step by step approach to coding.

Yes, great and amazing course - all things are explained cleary, in a simple manner and step by step.

the course is above expectation and the author teaches step by step with lot of practice sessions ..this course is very easy to understand and very intersting The step of learning was very good so far!

Thank you materials explained nicely till now Good instruction- step by step process with explanations It’s just a bit slow really Very accurate Great Course This is a great course.

The content is easy to follow and its step by step nature allows you to grasp the concepts beyond the lecture allowing you to apply this knowledge to other projects.

Ardit has very good teaching approach to introduce step by step the concepts of Python.

The best step by step to install Python and the path for do our first code Carefully and patiently getting the basics so far Exciting he is great <3 amazing Some of the commands don't work for me, cant figure out why i m not getting in which platform are they writting the code So far its good and simple to learn... reminds me of DOS programming days.

What I really like is that you showed us some error and taught us how to solve these error step by step, which is very important.

Ardit does an amazing job and guides the student step by step.

Many good programming habits are embedded in it, like approaching a solution step by step, printing partial results, checking, etc.

I had some python knowledge but the author of this course explains thoroughly step by step.

the lectures are simple, concise, and step by step explanation for students to understand the concepts of python for beginners with the sample apps that may exist in real world.

The approach which is taken to provide a not working solution and go through step by step fixing it is awesome!

python mega course

The course was good and informative and would recommend to anybody that wants to get started in python I am about 60% through the Python Mega Course and am borderline ecstatic.

must buy python mega course.

Alas, the Python Mega Course pays for itself 10 times over via overviews, training and utilization of: pip and *.whl files!, Heroku, Git, Postgres, SQLite, virtualenv, Flask, Folium, Bokeh, Pandas, Numpy, Tkinter, Jupyter, Jinja2, psycopg2, gunicorn, werkzeug, bkcharts, xlrd, opencv-python, ipython, geopy, and beautiful soap (bs4)!

It is using a different software but its still ok It was really nice learning Python through the Python Mega Course.

As the instructor has made another course available which focuses on working on 100 Python exercises, I have already signed up to take that course as that is exactly what I'm looking for to improve upon what I've learned from the Python Mega Course, and simply just to practice.

After having learned some fundamental notion of python I started The Python Mega Course.

Before taking the Python Mega Course, I had been learning Python for a few months and was confident with writing intermediate level code.

The Python Mega Course is excellent at demonstrating examples of how Python can be applied in real life.

The Python Mega Course is very clear on these subjects that I had previously struggled with.

I just finished going through the Python Mega Course and would like to say how much I enjoyed it.

Thumbs UP for the author and for his "The Python Mega Course: Build 10 Real World Applications course".

The Python Mega Course is nicely structured and easy to follow.

I'm currently taking the Python Mega Course, and am extremely pleased with the quality of the content available in this work.

broken down

Again, because the course is broken down into short manageable videos that are action specific and there are many short practice tasks/quizzes/exercises that are key.

Each section was broken down in a clear enough fashion to allow for comments to be made throughout each script.

And I like how its broken down.

The course is very easy to follow and The content is broken down to small, easy to understand chunks.

Feels like every peice of Python is broken down and tackled individually.

- "in detail" - the lectures are broken down into 5 minute chunks, so that's the maximum you need to "endure" - this is not a 45 minute university boring lecture, this is a 5 minute "boring" lecture.

It would be much better to take a big clean advanced code, that could be broken down and then show and make us do the basics first then after a while take the same code and copy it in a loop and so on till the big code was finally written.

so far not much more info than on some of YouTube videos I've gone through 20+ lessons so far, and I really appreciate the way in which the concepts are not only broken down into bite sized pieces, but they're explained in such a way that makes them incredibly easy to understand.

Getting started on a very good, friendly and easy note Early days but everything is broken down to a beginners level which is exactly what i need Great course.

Conceps are broken down in understandable learning modules that build on eachother.

Very clear instructions with everything broken down in concise, manageable steps with each step building on the previous step.

I like how the code is broken down structurally.

Very Simple, broken down and easy to digest really great course!

knows his stuff

Good Style of teaching Ardit is clear and concise, and it is evident he knows his stuff.

Knows his stuff and always responds to queries on time.

Knows his stuff and knows how to explain it.

The instructor really knows his stuff and makes learning Python fun.

The instructor really knows his stuff!

His lectures are simple, clean, and easy to follow very basic The only complaint I have is with the accent, rest everything is up to the mark the instructor really knows his stuff Very good teaching Easy to follow and makes sense!

Easy to understand Guy's good, knows his stuff.

object oriented

The section on object oriented programing was confusing but I believe the instructor is in the process of updating it.

I started the course without any knowledge of Python or object oriented programming.

for example, if i want to modify a list by multiplying by 2, 1 line soln such as [2*x for x in list] There exist many such programming constructs, I thought this was a very good introductory course, my only comments would be that once concepts like object oriented programming were introduced, it would have been helpful if the remaining examples and exercises were presented using these concepts.

The object oriented concepts are introduced at the right place and Ardit is very confident in demonstrating guided debugging and error correction, while explaining in simple detail what he is typing in and more importantly why.

What I really like so far is how Tkinter is used to create a front and back end to SQLITE database and updating this later to code in object oriented style.

He also uses real world examples, especially with Object Oriented later on.

Moreover, It finally helped me to understand Object Oriented Programming.

Great explanation about everything so far good till now, but need info whether object oriented python is there in this course or not.

This is an important topic in programming that need a dedicated section just the way Object Oriented Programming (OOP) has its section.

The instructor spends five minutes discouraging the use of object oriented programming in the OOP section, when OOP actually better organizes code and should be encouraged; 3.

wide range

Shows a wide range of applications with many exciting projects.

You will study a wide range of material and has given me more confidence.

Overall this is a good course covering a wide range of areas of programming including basis database interaction with SQLite and Postgres, using Pandas for data analysis and sorting, using Bokey for charting and visualising data and also using Git and Heroku to upload apps to a live server.

Ardit is very thorough in his teaching approach and covers a wide range of topics in a very clear manner.

Also, Ardit exposes students to a wide range of packages and platforms which support Python and which, when combined, essentially provides pretty much all the tools you will need to develop pretty much any application (given that you also apply your imagination).

This is a great beginner's course that covers a wide range of programming techniques with Python.

Very good lectures, the teacher knows a lot it's obvious a wide range of knowledge is covered Very good lectures The instructor cut a big topic into small elements.

The course covers some amazing practical use cases of Python and a wide range of usages for the language.

Course covers a wide range of useful topics The background information in the introductory lectures has been very helpful.

visual studio

The biggest trouble I have had is moving from the course to visual studio code.

EDI download was Visual Studio Code and not Visual Studio itself that I have installed first and asked me a lot of add-ons to install line .net, Xamarin... etc.

The same thing is true for when you call it up from the terminal within Visual Studio Code.

However, I've already discovered that the version of Visual Studio that I downloaded does not match the video in the course.

I assume there was no special settings that Code Visual Studio needed?

Very thorough so far, I was pleased to find out about visual studio code, I find it lighter and more responsive than the whole VS suite.

not sure if my visual studio is connected to python!!

Using Visual Studio with Python is a great idea.

hasta el momento

hasta el momento a cumplido con todas las expectativas que tenia de él.

Muy práctico hasta el momento As I completed 37% of course, I see this course waste of time, the course describes the description without need for that, and some times stuck in a silly point for a long time even that point is very clear, a lot of repetitive information, sometimes giving info not related to the subject of episode, and most major info about python is not given at all, at the start, like intends, and new lines as a part from script blocks.

課程解釋得非常清楚,對初學者來說很有幫助。 he entendido todo muy ben hasta el momento straight forward approach in the early videos make it very approachable for someone who has limited coding experience.

Si, hasta ahora he aprendido bastante, de una forma clara y sencilla Porque me ha gustado el ritmo hasta el momento Clear concise, moves at a good pace.

3rd party

The 10 real world application were great and expanded my knowledge of Python and some of the 3rd party packages out there.

There is little information on how to get 3rd party software running even though it is necessary.

I didn't pay to learn how to use 3rd party python libraries but instead I wanted to learn hard-core python and this course only touches basic python stuff.

You' ll learn how to use a lot of 3rd party python libraries, it' s like an introduction to them.

I do data analysis and knew very little about python, this course presented great applications, valuable 3rd party libraries, and a set of workable apps that make great reference resources for future development.

The different exercises are well crafted for ensuring we get exposed to many different types of development, giving us the ability to program command line, web, and desktop UI platforms with various libraries, both natural python or 3rd party.

native speaker

I did ran the whole course at 1.25-1.5 speed, as I found the pace a llittle slow, but it's definetely not Ardit's fault, he's not a native speaker.

A native speaker would be easier on the ear.

Bien detallado con muchos ejemplos prácticos y aunque no soy "English native speaker" puede comprenderlo bastante bien.

After the first few videos it's quite obvious the guy is not native speaker.

-J This far, his english is very clear and easy to understand for non english native speakers as I am.

But I'm not a native speaker.
