Course introduction

Do you have lots of tedious, repetitive tasks at work? Do you want to be able to get things done more efficiently? Python can help!

Python is one of the most widely-used programming languages. Learning to code with Python is a highly marketable skill for any job, and it's not just for full-time software developers - anyone can learn it!

Python will help you automate tasks like sending emails and writing to files, allowing you to get things done more efficiently.

This course is for people who have never looked at a line of code or even heard of Python. We’ll be going through everything step by step in an easily understandable and fun way. I know what it’s like to be intimidated by or struggle through code - and I want to make sure no one feels that way. 

In this course, you’ll store information as data in Python code; control the logic in your code using conditionals, loops, and functions; and automate the retrieval of data from the web using the requests, Beautiful Soup, CSV libraries with a process called web scraping. You’ll learn a lot and have a good time!

What are you waiting for? Let’s do this!
