Course Description

Learn Python in this Python Programming Course

Python is developed under an OSI-approved open source license, making it freely usable and distributable, even for commercial use. Python is a general-purpose programming language. Created nearly 30 years ago, it is now one of the most popular languages out there to use. Its popularity is particularly important in the data science and machine learning fields. But it is also a language that is easy to learn, and that is why it has become the language most taught in universities.

Python interpreters are available for the main operating systems as well (Linux, Mac OS, Windows, Android, iOS, BSD, etc.) so it’s very flexible in where it is used. Python has a simple syntax that makes it suitable for learning to program as a first language. The learning curve is smoother than other languages such as Java, which quickly requires learning about Object Oriented Programming or C/C++ that require understanding pointers. Still, it’s possible to learn about OOP or functional programming in Python when the time comes.

Where is Python Used?

  • Web Development, using the frameworks Django, Flask, Pylons
  • Data Science and Visualization using Numpy, Pandas and Matplotlib
  • Machine learning with Tensorflow and Scikit-learn
  • Desktop applications with PyQt, Gtk, wxWidgets and many more
  • Mobile applications using Kivy or BeeWare
  • Education: Python is a great language to learn to program

How much can you make?

The average salary for a Python Developer is $117,155 per year in the United States. You can just search for Python jobs and see the ranges from $20/hr to over $40/hr.

Our Python programming course will teach you and show you the basics of Python programming. We will go over concepts like loops, variables, operators, syntax, and coding practices. With each module, we will build upon your knowledge from the previous module. This reinforces all the concepts along the way and at the end of some modules in our Python programming course, you will work on exercises to prove to yourself you can do this.

After taking this Python programming course you will be ready to move on to a move advanced course allowing you to build on the foundation this course provides. You will be making more sophisticated and more robust programs in no time using your new skills.

  1. I was looking for an online course for Six Sigma as my new boss is a true believer and I wanted to have a better handle of what is Six Sigma. I started looking around and found ITU, and bought the course, and could not be happier. I have no intention of getting certified, but at least now I can speak the jargon and understand what my boss is talking about.

  2. The educators at ituonline.com are highly skilled but could improve their methods of instruction. In the CCNA 200-301 course, there’s a heavy emphasis on oral lectures, and it would be beneficial to include more in-depth visual aids. Annotating labs and graphics could also make the educational journey more effective. On the other hand, the N10-008 course instructor consistently offers top-notch material.

  3. The CompTIA PenTest was an excellent course and the instructor, Chrys, explained the material in a clear and easy way for me to understand and comprehend essential techniques. Highly recommend!

  4. This course is super detailed but not boring, and they give you cool projects to actually practice what you’re learning.
