As its very name suggests, the course covers only the essentials of the Python programming language; it does not cover any essentials of programming. And despite having the Programming Skill level set to Beginner on the provider's site, this course won't suite the needs of a complete beginner in programming. Rather, it is intended for those who already have some experience with another programming language and want to learn Python essentials. The basics of the Python language, such as, functions, generators, classes, modules, etc. are well covered and overall I like the choice of topics, except for that I would not consider the database development to be essential. The author's explanations are concise and clear, although, as already mentioned, you need to be familiar with programming since the author do not spend his precious time explaining, for instance, what variables and functions are and why do we need them.
