Ready to build on the experience you gained in the Introduction to Python: Absolute Beginner and Fundamentals courses? Continue to learn Python, step by step, as you create scalable, robust, and interactive code.
Explore the power of importing Python Libraries into your code. Create Python (.py) files, and work within the file system. Increase the power and precision of your statements through better understanding of objects, operators, and formatting. Plus, make code with robust error handling methods, package your Python files for running in other programs or from the terminal, and provide standard Docstring documentation.
When you finish the course, you’ll have code that will handle errors, you’ll have solid, standard documentation features, and you’ll be able to use more robust data structures. Start using your skills to solve problems and build code that lasts.
As with the previous introduction to Python programming courses, you will get lots of hands-on practice working with sample code in Jupyter Notebooks on Azure, which require only a browser and an Internet connection (and, in this course, use the Jupiter Terminal).
MOOCs stand for Massive Open Online Courses. These arefree online courses from universities around the world (eg. StanfordHarvardMIT) offered to anyone with an internet connection.

How do these MOOCs or free online courses work?
MOOCs are designed for an online audience, teaching primarily through short (5-20 min.) pre recorded video lectures, that you watch on weekly schedule when convenient for you. They also have student discussion forums, homework/assignments, and online quizzes or exams.
