An Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python (Part 1)

Written 2 years ago
Very good course for anyone looking for a taste of what programming is about. The content has been carefully created to give a thorough introduction of python, and in no time, they get you going doing some very interesting projects. The feeling of succeeding at a mini-project and showing it to your friends afterwards is highly rewarding.

For the instructors I have nothing but praise. Both prof. Scott Rixner and prof. Joe Warren excel at making the whole process both useful as a learning exercise and engaging. They skilfully delve into the more difficult concepts and to soon after, jump-start the student with a fun exercise to put those concepts into use.

Regarding coursera, while flawless in computers, it is a pain to use in Android or iOS in the iPad. Whole sections will not load (such as the mini project pages), a change in the screen orientation (in Android) will refresh the app to the landing page.

An Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python (Part 2)

Written a year ago
I took the first part of the course with no previous programming experience, and after finishing both courses I feel I have gained a foundation from where to develop myself. The teachers make an awesome job (thanks Scott and Joe!) at delivering sometimes convoluted concepts in a fun and easy-to-understand fashion. The exercises gradually build up in difficulty while allowing students to apply new concepts in a natural and gentle pace. And well, I call them exercises but they are actually videogames...Learning python while having fun, that's a combo!
