TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO PYTHON PROGRAMMING
Very good introductory course: the final assignment was sufficiently challenging that I had to visit the discussion forums and review online resources to assist with completion.
I learned a lot from this course! Thank you Brandon and team. The course has more coverage than the one offered by Michigan U which I took prior to this.
The course has intensive content which requires students to fully understand the previous sections in order to go to the next one. It also provides sound knowledge on the content that you learn.
Well conducted course for a beginner in programming. Appreciate the content and Hands on exercises. It has definitely helped come to grips with a growing programming language.
