Course Description

Ready for more hands-on, step-by-step Python fundamentals? Add to the foundational experience you got in the Introduction to Python: Absolute Beginner, and explore data structures. Get lots of practice working with sample code in Jupyter Notebooks on Azure, which require only a browser and an Internet connection.

Focus on Python data structures, and work with string, list, and range sequences. Discover the power of list iteration, and learn about string and list methods. From there, get the details on file input and output—open files, read them, add to them, close them, and more. At the end of the course, you’ll be able to slice strings into substrings, create lists, iterate through them, import files, and use file append mode, along with a lot of other practical Python tasks, as you get started coding.

I highly recommend this course!! The material is very clearly and logically presented and there are loads of practice exercises. I've tried other Python courses and I had the most success with this one. Also, using Jupyter notebooks is really convenient.

I liked the structure of the course as well as the fact that it is using the Jupyter notebook. The content is good for introductory level and I think that more emphasis is given on the technical aspects of the language rather than the programmer mindset.

This is a great course overall! As a novice I learned a lot from Eric Camplin and this course. I love the short videos, the way the content is organized and the pace used. I believe anyone can successfully complete the course whether you have a busy life or not, and whether you are a quick learner or not. Furthermore, the way this course is organized shows that much thought and experience was put into it as it flows well from start to finish. As far as the instructor is concerned, this course (and Part 1 of it) is the best I've taken in edX. I highly recommend it to all my fellow beginner programmers. Thank you Eric!

This instructor is one of the bests! He talks really slow and that makes it a lot easier for us foreigners to understand, even without any subtitles. Thank you so much Microsoft and edX for offering these opportunities!
