Video lessons with hints and real-life Python examples let you learn Python in the fastest and most effective way.
Python is being used everywhere from back-end web servers, to front-end game development and is more popular than ever. It is a general-purpose, powerful programming language which lets you work more quickly and integrate your systems more effectively. It has efficient high-level data structures and a simple but effective approach to object-oriented programming. Python’s syntax together with its interpreted nature, make it an ideal language for scripting and rapid application development in many areas on most platforms. These features make Python programmers more productive than Java and C programmers.
You will learn the basics and more advanced topics of the Python language. After watching the Python tutorial (Python v3.3), you will be able to read and write Python modules and programs. 11 lessons, total length 2 h 31 min. Python scripts are attached to the tutorial.
