Excellent course and instructors. Really enjoyable to learn programming by building games! I recommend it to everyone that wants to learn to code in Python.

I had take Python on Codeacademy prior to taking this course. The course is definitely a good on in the sense that it gives you a feeling of accomplishment with tangible evidence each week. The instructors are really animated and friendly. Their enthusiasm is quite contagious and gets you really excited to learn. The only caveat I have with this course is that their 'simple.gui' module is not a real module. If the authors actually implemented this module and allowed users to download it, I think this course would improve drastically. Alternatively, I think they should change the syntax of their simple.gui module to match existing modules such as PyGame or Tkinter.

I was intrigued by the decision to teach python through programming games, and thought it was a masterful approach. The games in part one are not nearly as fun as those in part 2 (which I just finished) ,but still gave me a feeling of accomplishment each week. The instructors knew how to teach in small increments, and build each week on previous knowledge to make ever more intricate games. Warning: This course is addictive!!! I am looking forward to using my python programming skills to subjects other than games,
