Description

I am a self-taught programmer. After a year of self-study, I learned to program well enough to land a job as a software engineer II at eBay. Once I got there, I realized I was severely under-prepared. I was overwhelmed by the amount of things I needed to know but hadn’t learned yet. My journey learning to program, and my experience at my first job as a software engineer were the inspiration for this course.

This course is not just about learning to program; although you will learn to code. If you want to program professionally, it is not enough to learn to code; that is why, in addition to helping you learn to program, I also cover the rest of the things you need to know to program professionally that classes and books don’t teach you. The Self-taught Programmer is a roadmap, a guide to take you from writing your first Python program, to passing your first technical interview. I divided the course into five sections:

1. Learn to program in Python 3 and build your first program.

2. Learn Object-oriented programming and create a powerful Python program to get you hooked.

3. Learn to use tools like Git, Bash, regular expressions and databases. Then use your new coding skills to build a web scraper.

4. Study Computer Science fundamentals like data structures and algorithms.

5. Finish with tips for working with a team and landing a programming job.

You CAN learn to program professionally. The path is there. Will you take it?

Who this course is for:

This is an excellent course on Python for beginners and first time programmers. The visuals are engaging and explanations are very clear. I had read his excellently authored book “The self taught programmer” so took up this course on Udemy. I highly recommend this course by Cory Althoff.
