Chalk full of information and very intense, it was a very knowledge-filled course. I would give it 4.5 out of 5 stars if I could, only because I think some of the teaching styles could be more digestible, with more intermittent exercises to make sure we're understanding and absorbing the lectures and maybe a little more structure. I will be going through the course material on my own again. Basically, each day could be a week's worth of information and it takes a lot of practice to actually know it all. I do think the course is valuable and worth the money, but you have to follow through with practicing on your own after each class and the entire session in order to get the full value.

This is quite an intensive course with a good value for money. The course is providing a strong foundation for those who would like to learn and develop their Python skills further. The lecturer is very student friendly and patient and is willing to help both during and after the completion of the course. I would recommend this course for anyone who is new to the language and is willing to cope with a fast pace of the program.

The course was very interesting and also challenging for me as I am not a developer and just use some basic SQLrequest. I have learnt new thing and more effiscient way to manage data. it's gave me new inspiration for my job. Thanks to Art.

I learned more than I expected in this Python Data Science" class. Although I do not have much background except from some SQL query in GIS environment, now I am confident to explore more into the scripting and customization of applications more than what I used to be. Cung Thang

Art is great. If you need special attention in a class room he will take time out and help debug your program with you. This is my second course from them and if you need an introduction or a refresher this is great since it gives you significant exposure and interface within a very short time . Would be back for ML

This class was taught by instructors Tim and Art, both of whom were extremely knowledgeable and tremendously helpful. The small class size made the hands-on learning very effective. It is a tough course that is very extensive, but I learned a lot! With no prior coding experience this was the best introduction to Python I could expect. 5 of 5!

This was by far the most informative and well taught python class I've taken. Both Art and Tim went out of their way to make sure that everyone understood the material and took the time to adress any and all questions. I would reccomend this course to annyone who needs to understand python who may have little previous experience with it. Definitely the best value of any programming language courseI have ever taken.

I enrolled in the Introduction to Python course after noticing how many jobs are needing Python experience recently. I already had programming experience and a Computer Science degree but wanted to take a course to make learning a bit easier and to force myself to do it. Art is a great instructor and used many clear examples during the course. My particular class only had 3 students including myself and the 2 others were not tech savvy. Art was very good at handling their questions and keeping the pace of the class moving though I would imagine if the class was larger it would be more difficult with many people who didn't know some technical basics especially since it's only a 3 session course. I walked away with a solid foundation in Python though and I've been learning on my own as well and going into more advanced features beyond what was taught in the course. It's a good springboard to start learning Python. Art also provided potential job interview questions and that same week I actually encountered one of them in a real interview so he was right on the mark. You will benefit the most if you do work on your own between the classes and make use of the resources provided to you for self study.

Art Yudin is an excellent instructor and teaches a very well organized course in a very approachable, friendly manner. Further, he is very enthusiastic and goes above and beyond in helping his students. He kindly helped me troubleshoot various aspects of a dataset I have been working on for my own work, for which I am incredibly grateful. I would gladly take more Python course with him.

Great class! We covered a lot of material in a short amount of time. The challenges were fun, and I enjoyed working on them as a team with other classmates. I think the class would be even better if, in the morning, we went over all the solutions to the exercises from the night before. Because even if I didn't get to work on them at home, I can still benefit to see how they are solved. Since I have JavaScript programming background, it was easier for me to understand the concepts even though Art went over them kind of fast. Some other students had a harder time, but assistant teacher, Tim, would explain the concepts in a different way which helped. The class description should probably be updated since we didn't cover these topics: • Python's datetime module • Regular expressions • Writing to a File • Appending to a File • Selection sort • Merge sort (this we went over only because we had extra time) Overall, I had a great experience and would recommend it to anyone who is starting to learn Python!

I didn't expect to learn much in a 4 session Python course, but Art's teaching style was very fitting for the subject. As the Chinese proverb states: Tell me, I’ll forget. Show me, I’ll remember. Involve me, I’ll understand.

I think students should be asked to download the development tools required before the class so time isn't wasted installing stuff at the beginning of the class. Also instructor should include a 5 minute bathroom break in the middle. 3 hours is a long time to go with no break.

This course was a great introduction to the various data types in Python and when to use them. The exercises were challenging but improve your understanding of the material. An ideal choice for someone who has some familiarity with programming but doesn't know Python.

I have found practical programming courses very helpful. Art has been a great instructor and super helpful outside of class as well. After taking his 4 week Intro to Python (weekends) course, I decided to take Blockchain 101, Python for Web Scraping and will be staring my next course using Python for Machine Learning in a few weeks. I would recommend taking these courses in order to get you started on coding. Whether you just want to learn coding for fun or also want to learn it for application purposes (work or personal), these have been a great starter for me. Looking forward to taking more intensive courses with practical programming in the future.
