Python for Absolute Beginners Transcripts
Chapter: Welcome to the course
0:00 Hello and welcome to my course Python for Absolute Beginners I'm super excited to have you here we are going to have so much fun
0:08 going through all of the code that we're going to write learning how to be effective with Python
0:13 and honestly, learning how much fun programming can be. If you're new to programming, don't worry you're actually in exactly the right place
0:22 this course is for people who are new to programming. A lot of courses assume background knowledge or experience with some programming concepts
0:32 Do you know what a variable is? Do you know what loops are? Do you know what source code is? Do you know what a compiler is? Do you know how to use it?
0:38 And then they'll teach you the details of some language with this one, we're going to start right from the start
0:43 that's what we mean by absolute beginners because we're beginning at the beginning. We're going to cover all the ideas that maybe people who took
0:51 computer science in college or have computer science degrees spent years studying, we're going to condense that down
0:57 to just the essential things that you need to learn to have a core understanding of programming in general and we're going to work on Python
1:04 and some of its most important features and teach you how to program simple applications with Python but don't let the word simple discourage you.
1:13 By the time you're done with this course you're going to be able to write meaningful programs that you can use to automate things in your life.
1:19 Are you a scientist and want to automate studying and processing the data you collect? You'll be able to do that, no problem.
1:26 Need to create a simple little application to help you out with some other project you got going on? Yes, you can do that, or do you want to use this
1:33 as a springboard to get into the deeper programming concepts like web development, databases? Yeah, it'll be great for that as well.
1:41 So again, welcome to the course I'm so happy to have you here, let's get started.
