Python Programming Courses

Would anyone happen to know of any Python Courses that are available online?  I am looking to see if there might be any available and out there some where so far I haven't had a lot of luck in my search.  I have been looking over books, but would really like to take a class online to help me out.  Thanks.

Re: Python Programming Courses

Google has one published on youtube, I was going over it a couple months back, looked decent:

Here's Python 3 Tutorials on Lynda.com

Python Programming Language (CBTNuggets Training):

There's good resources all over the web for you to pick up on it free of charge, just have a look around.

Re: Python Programming Courses

xXxKrisxXx thanks for the reply.  I downloaded the Google Python videos (Keepvid.com) and will start checking them out tomorrow. 

I also found this as well on youtube for a python programming tutorial:

Has anyone had any good experience with python programming classes at any colleges?  If I go through a college I have a much easier time getting my work to pay for the classes.

Re: Python Programming Courses

You can also try this -

MIT 6.00 Introduction to Computer Science and Programming, Fall 2008

I found it really comprehensive and good. Google Python videos are also really nice.

Happy Learning  :)

Re: Python Programming Courses

steven1664,

If you haven't already, check out the Python course at the O'Reilly online site.  I plan on signing up for this class after I finish my eCPPT class at elearnsecurity.  Here's the link below.  It looks pretty good for $398.

Re: Python Programming Courses

I think the content covered in this course

expressions, variables, conditionals, loops, lists, sets, dicts, functions, objects and exceptions


can easily be taught by self-study and isn't really worth to spend 400$, imho.

Re: Python Programming Courses

I second awesec. There are enough free resources available for learning python that spending spending 400$ sounds like a waste of money. Learning syntax of any language isn't difficult, you've to practice regularly to retain it and become efficient at it.

Re: Python Programming Courses

The course might be good. Might be useful if you're going after an ORA Cert, but at the same time, you can read Books on it free.
