I work as a software developer and have completed LTP1 already... was expecting this course to be entirely different then LTP1, but it turned out to be a extension Doesn't mean that i didn't learn anything. This course expect participants to be familiar with concepts at least up-to whatever taught in LTP1, however some basic programming experience in python will do It talks about problem solving approach as well efficient program design to make things systematic and easier. You will also get to know the difference between good and average problem solving methods(algorithms) Most important part according to me was testing. The assignment 1 used peer grading and really gives a nice idea of how to write complete test cases. It really helps to develop an understanding about writing good test case. Course content is less and you'll feel like it was stopped abruptly. Still i like the course since its lightweight and can be completed. Plus helps to get a bit to next level of python programming like OOP, Testing etc
I work as a software developer and have a good understanding of programming stuff. I'm quite familiar with c, java and also worked with Ruby which is quite similar to python. However i was looking for a Python Primer (may be because of its popularity) and this course felt like the right thing. In addition i also joined one python based course on eDX in parallel which is like almost 1 semester long. Needless to say, this course worked perfectly for me i got almost 100% of effort invested in this course. On contrary with eDX though i came close, but still i left it due to shortage of time and too much workload. I think this course is good enough if you are looking for a python intro. The best thing about course is short easy to grasp lectures which makes handling the workload easy enough. I don't like to leave course in between but sometimes you have to when you can't balance it with your work. It happened with eDX and i'm happy that this time it didn't.
