Programming for Everybody (Getting Started with Python)

Written 8 months ago
This is a very good introductory course for people with zero programming experience. I had used Matlab in school. And at work, I and did some python by just reading documentary and googling, which was really time-consuming without any basic knowledge. That's why I wanted to take a course to walk me through. I completed the whole course in 1 day, about 8 hours, by X1.5 speed playing the videos.

The course is well structured, easy to follow, with a very supportive community. Thanks to the quick response from the TA in the discussion forum, I get to solve my question so fast.

What I also like about the course is that the professor is so passionate about programming, about open source, which really inspired me. He had included a lot of interesting additional material, like interviews with the creator of Python, the creator of Arduino.

The only thing that I think could be improved for this course is to include more and in-depth assignment.
