This course introduces the basics of Python 3, including conditional execution and iteration as control structures, and strings and lists as data structures. You'll program an on-screen Turtle to draw pretty pictures. You'll also learn to draw reference diagrams as a way to reason about program executions, which will help to build up your debugging skills. The course has no prerequisites. It will cover Chapters 1-9 of the textbook "Fundamentals of Python Programming," which is the accompanying text (optional and free) for this course.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PYTHON BASICS
Overall a good course but not as thorough as I'd hoped. I do not consider myself as understanding Python3 very well but it's a good introductory course to learning what code is and how it runs.
This is a great course for getting started in Python. If you have (even rusty) programming skills, it might seem a little slow in places. Trust me, pay attention - you will still learn new things.
The practice exercises and the Runestone texbook reinforce the learning materials from the recorded lectures. I really love the pace and humor at the University of Michigan School of Information.
Nice, Happy after learning some basics.
The teachers were awesome, they built this course nicely so everyone can understand so smoothly.
I can say , I understand all those things better :)
