What I really liked about this course was that it was focused on one thing: consuming services. I’ve taken a few different Python courses online as I try and learn Python, and most are throwing all the basics that you need to know – everything you’d expect in a beginner course, but it does get overwhelming. This was the first course I’ve taken that was focused on getting you really good at one thing, and in a few different ways that you might need to do it.
Are you kidding? By the end of first Mongo Quickstart coding example I was checking out colorama which was hardly mentioned, if at all. Watching the short on getting the code from GitHub lecture, I heard the best summary of branches ever. Those are not even core to the course!
Thanks for your podcasts and courses. It’s all been very helpful. Just wanted to let you know that I got a job with a startup. Looking forward to working with Python and even doing some ML. Very exciting stuff. Keep up the great work!
One of the challenges of self-paced online learning is if you get stuck it can be hard to get help to get yourself unstuck.
