Question from Andrew D.
Why do you not provide a weekend version?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Andrew! They will, but there is Python for Data Science very close version to Python Immersive, just slightly different flavor. You may click the link here: https://coursehorse.com/nyc/classes/tech/data-science/python-for-data-science2
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
There is plenty of information available for free online; however, having an instructor to show you the fundamentals can get you started on the right path. If you work on it a few hours a day, you might learn the basics in a few months.
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
Now we have a weekend course.

Question from K
How does a 5-day course provide enough information for an entry-level programming job? I know nothing about coding or programming, and I am finding it hard to believe I will learn anything in 5 days. I don’t even know what Python is.
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
The first step would be to research about Python Programming Language and decide if you want to spend time learning Python. In Python Immersive we explain the core of Python, built-in data types, data structures behavior, the common interview questions and Big-O notation. I would require hard work on your side, homework assignments and practice. We don't want you to invest your time and money unless you are absolutely going to get the result you are committed to at the beginning of this course.

Question from anonymous
Hi, Do you create the materials on your own? Or are they taken off the internet and taught? And if they are taken off the internet, which most likely it is, can I get just get the material, so I don't waste my money?
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
Python Immersive is not about lectures, this is not a history class. Python Immersive is about how to build stuff on your own, it is a constant process of lectures, guidance, debugging and hard work.
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
I love stackoverflow, however very often people giving advises on stackoverflow has no fundamental understanding of programming, so many funny examples, like use iterate through Pandas DataFrame with a for loop. I guess people have no idea how to write an efficient code.
Answer from anonymous
Stackoverflow if you checked the model has community voting on the answers given. That means the best answers are filtered. It's more reliable than some coding schools teaching.

Question from saul
How well would this work if I can only be there part of the day some days (i.e., attend from 10-3:30 MWF, and 10-1 plus 3:30-5 T/Th)? Possible or impossible?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Yes, this is possible, just advise the instructor in advance on the time you'll be leaving and coming back to class. Also, you could take this course again with a new cohort.
