Welcome to the Modern Python 3 Bootcamp! I’ve launched my fair share of Udemy courses, but I’ve never done anything quite this crazy.
This course is a unique experience on Udemy. There are dozens of existing Python courses you can choose from, but this course is the only one that has nearly 200 interactive challenges you can complete right here in your browser. I didn’t just tack on a couple of exercises at the end; this course is fully built around the coding exercises. This course is all about getting you writing code ASAP, rather than sitting back watching a bunch of videos.
In development, I referred to this course as a hybrid between a typical Udemy course and an interactive Codecademy-style course. You get over 25 hours of in-depth videos and my dumb jokes along with meticulously created exercises and quizzes to test your knowledge as you go.
Many of the older Python courses still focus on Python 2. This course is all about writing the most modern, up-to-date Python code, so Python 3 was the obvious choice. The course covers all the latest additions and changes to the Python language. The course also places a large emphasis on thinking like a Python developer, and writing code the “Pythonic” way.
As for the curriculum, This course teaches all the key topics covered by other Python courses, but also covers more advanced topics like web scraping, crawling, and testing, just to name a few. Please feel free to explore the curriculum and watch some of the free preview videos!
Python is consistently ranked in either first or second place as the most in-demand programming languages across the job market. It has applications in data science, machine learning, web development, self-driving cars, automation, and many many other disciplines. There has never been a better time to learn it!
I’m spent years teaching people to program at in-person bootcamps in the San Francisco Bay Area. In recent years, I’ve started bringing my methods from the classroom to the online world. In my first year teaching online, I was selected as the Best Newcomer Instructor in the Udemy Instructor Awards 2015. I’m passionate about making the best possible online learning experiences that mirror my in-person courses.
If you want to take ONE COURSE to master Python take this course.
- Anyone who wants to learn Python.
- Anyone who is curious about data science, machine learning, or web development
- Anyone who wants to get tons of practice with the interactive exercises.
Frequently Bought Together
Hi! I’m Colt. I’m a developer with a serious love for teaching. I’ve spent the last few years teaching people to program at 2 different immersive bootcamps where I’ve helped hundreds of people become web developers and change their lives. My graduates work at companies like Google, Salesforce, and Square.
Most recently, I led Galvanize’s SF’s 6 month immersive program as Lead Instructor and Curriculum Director. After graduating from my class, 94% of my students went on to receive full-time developer roles. I also worked at Udacity as a Senior Course Developer on the web development team where I got to reach thousands of students daily.
I’ve since focused my time on bringing my classroom teaching experience to an online environment. In 2016 I launched my Web Developer Bootcamp course, which has since gone on to become one of the best selling and top rated courses on Udemy. I was also voted Udemy’s Best New Instructor of 2016.
I’ve spent years figuring out the “formula” to teaching technical skills in a classroom environment, and I’m really excited to finally share my expertise with you. I can confidently say that my online courses are without a doubt the most comprehensive ones on the market.
Join me on this crazy adventure!
Colt is an excellent instructor and this course is well constructed. I would obviously like more exercises scattered throughout to understand how each of the concepts apply. I think there are a few section that could use a little bit more depth for me to understand, but then again this a bootcamp. I really enjoy Python.
I need to purchase a course which is up-to-date and not teach legacy stuffs. Did my research and found that this has really good reviews. I have almost completed the course and I must say that the course delivers my expectation.
The biggest plus is the exercise and quizzes.
Tutor is engaging and explains everything well.
very nice course everything was explained properly, the only negative i think is that any advanced data structures has not been covered
Started my path to becoming a programmer a couple of months ago and I always end up coming back to this course for a quick refresher on a couple of topics.
I’ve purchased a few other Python courses, but none go in as much detail as Colt’s does nor do they come with as many examples.
The course was great, I learned a lot. I really enjoyed Colt’s humor to break up the monotony of learning on my own. The course was very comprehensive. To make the course even better, there should be some discussion on using pytest framework for testing.
Hands down the best Python Course with ample of coding exercises! Mandatory for any beginner or even for someone who just needs to brush-up or looking for a revision.
Colt is a good teacher. Course will give you the foundations needed to use Python in advanced settings. Course covers a lot of different aspects of the grand language of Python. Would have liked more interactive code alongs with more advanced topics then all of the problem sets but still found the course effective.
The course is all you need to get started with Python, the only improvement I really suggest is that there should be more projects where you apply all the knowledge obtained. Overall a great course and a great instructor.
Really enjoyed the course. Learned a lot more than I have in other classes. Instructor seems like a really nice guy. Made learning fun.
I’ve just finished the very last section of this course, and it was one of the greatest learning experiences I’ve ever had.
Colt is such a talented instructor, in a way that he can simplify complicated concepts to a level that even perhaps a child can understand with ease. (I am an educator myself from an entirely different industry, and I know how hard this is to pull off correctly.)
I highly recommend this course to anyone with (close to) zero programming knowledge and would like to learn python. If you want to learn python, this is THE course for you. (At least it was for me.)
Thank you Colt, I now have a basic understanding of how python works.
And thank you Zarko for helping me solve my weird connection error. (I can finally sleep peacefully at night! lol)
