The best python course is easily; https://www.udemy.com/course/python-the-complete-python-developer-course/
But might be a bit long for your taste (80+ hours)

Just a Udemy Masterclass. No clue if it’s any good, lol, but it at least goes along with the kids’ Python programming book I got!
And I need something new. I can’t even hustle a job as a low level admin right now, even with a decade of experience running my own biz (a fitness studio). So, my stubborn old ass is going to do something else, but I need to pick up a whole bunch of skills to even really start a new path.

Apologies I didn't get to this earlier. It's this course: https://www.udemy.com/course/python-the-complete-python-developer-course/ by Tim Buchalka

I'm also a beginner and finished the Coursera course you're mentioning but honestly Tim Buchalka is a wonderful teacher. The course is 46 hours long and you'll have very strong foundations at the end of this course.

I've purchased a few Python courses from Udemy, but I found thisone to be the most informative. It absolutely covers everything and in a very practical way. Has very good exercises/quizzes as well.

Python is one of the easiest scripting languages to learn and also one of the most used languages in the hacking scene (if not the most, even Elliot used python this season). I recommend you to follow a course like this (Note that Udemy Courses usually are $10-$20 but sometimes they decide to put the whole price, just wait until the price is reduced). In the meantime you can start watching a few youtube tutorials about the language, or search for the coursera python course which is free.

For Python? I followed this course
Soooo much content, very detailed explanations, also recently updated. Would recommend.
I wouldn't say it alone brought me to a professional level, only working with other Python developers in a corporate environment was really able to do that, but it taught me enough to understand what my gaps in knowledge were, if that makes sense. It taught me a lot of the unique and interesting shortcuts you'll find in Python, as well as good development practices.
FYI, you can get like 90% off on the entire website by making a new account or googling "Udemy coupon" and clicking the link.

I took this before starting 161 (it will still serve you well now) and I am convinced it made the course 70% easier for me. Through 161 and 162, I never struggled.

I'm learning from this one and it's been pretty reasonable to follow. It's also currently being updated and the updated sectiond are even better than the originals.

I'd like to learn Python -- I have about 15-18 years of experience writing SQL and Python has been popping up more frequently at work. I work in a small Data Science team within a very large organization.
Not that it really matters but, one of my friends suddenly has some free time on his hands and taking a Python class has been on my 12-month radar, but it's suddenly kicked into high gear now.
I'd like a class that has some online videos and then some relevant coursework that accompanies that lesson. I have about 4-5 hours a week to dedicate towards this endeavor for the videos and homework ... probably no more than 100 hours total, but I can adjust as necessary.
I looked at Learn Python Programming Masterclass but somebody here mentioned this class has a lot of videos and not a lot of homework. I learn best by both, so I'm looking for something a bit different.

How do you more senior guys feel about learning through this course Learn Python Programming Master Class by Tim Buchalka on Udemy! I have been using it to learn and so far for me it feels like I’m learning at a good pace.

When you say beginner, what kind of projects have you made? When you say some time now, how long is that? Do you have a full-time job or school that pull you away from time coding? Do you have kids that need attention? A lot of things pull us away from the keyboard but getting a consistent 30 min to 2 hrs a day working toward a game or app can go a long way.
Tim Buchalka's Python Masterclass from Udemy is a great resource for beginners to build a foundation for higher level coding: https://www.udemy.com/course/python-the-complete-python-developer-course/.
Also look into Automate the Boring Stuff by Al Sweigart or any of his other books: https://automatetheboringstuff.com/
Best of luck and keep trying.

I did this one to learn python for AWS.
The one I did had a higher rating and has been revised. Clean examples, larger text, concise sections.
I have only done 1 Python course. I do recommend week 6 of r/cs50 as a fast primer into Python if you know how to code in anything else.

If you are a visual learning like me watch this course for a discount
It is a pretty solid Python class

Should be this one then? https://www.udemy.com/course/python-the-complete-python-developer-course/
1 points • OldSchoolBBSer
It's not a book, but I would highly recommend this class once you get a little comfortable. I'm still working through it (would be a waste to just watch the vids), but it's the first I've taken that really covers practical stuff along with a deep dive into the language. https://www.udemy.com/course/python-the-complete-python-developer-course/

https://www.udemy.com/course/python-the-complete-python-developer-course/ 54% of the reviews have positive comments with 5 stars, 34% of the comments have 4 stars, 1% of the comments have one star, so like 562 people didnt like the course at all. maybe all of the positive comments are bots LOL

I looked up the Angela Yu course and it looks awesome! That really does look worth your money (but again, wait for it to go on sale)
Here's a couple other good ones:
This one by Tim Buchalka - it's long and I like his way of teaching - he over-explains things and starts from the ground up instead of just throwing confusing things at you.
This is a very good intro course by another teacher I like. He also has a discord channel that you can access, which is a great way to meet people and chat about programming and projects, get help on stuff etc.
Here is another good course by the same guy but this one is geared towards data science and ML.

That is a good idea!
Books are the best bet.
I've also got a good course on udemy.com from Tim Buchanan he teaches a "master class" on python which would probably be amazing for you to see, since he is a veteran programmer and he sends weekly/monthly updates to all his students giving free advice and what not. I suggest looking this up here: https://www.udemy.com/course/python-the-complete-python-developer-course/learn/lecture/3829344#overview
Did you want to go through that book first together chapter by chapter?

This course I've heard nothing about, but I'm currently taking a large Java course by the same author and it's decent enough. So the Python course might be as well.

You need to have a specific goal, which means you should research specifically what you need to learn in terms of Python. I suggest that you focus on only learning Python right now if that’s what you want to learn, and to stick with a single source until you finish it.
For good sources, you can turn to Udemy. It offers paid courses, but they only cost about $12-$14 when they are on sale. I found a few courses that might be good for you:
If you decide to get a paid course, make sure you look in the table of contents to understand what it will teach you and if it will fulfill your learning goals.
I also found a repository on GitHub with a list of learning resources for Python:

There are lots of courses on python so Ill list two that I have went for, and have NOT finished, they have not been my focus, but I do want to learn python later at the very least to use it for network automation and or scripting in linlux.
IMHO that wev dev course is the kind of thing that one should have completed before going into a bootcamp.
The second one is larger, but does not have you build anything, so your choice. Dare I remind you their current sale goes off in a few hours, some say that UDemy always has sales..... but ... maybe not,
Sorry, I can't comment on dataquest, I have not used it. There are free python courses on youtube, so dont feel that Im pushing you to buy anything....... and freecodecamp teaches some python for data science.

Thank you very much for this explanation. That's exactly what I wanted to hear.
Appreciate your help really a lot.
From far I can see the best now is to put ML/DL on hold for later stages and focus on something smaller as you recommened.
But could you recommend something specific?
What do you think then about MIT edX program or Google Automation course?
Another options are to start doing some other Udemy courses like Fred Baptiste deep learning courses, The Modern Python 3 Bootcamp, Learn Python Programming Masterclass, The Complete Python Course | Learn Python by Doing
I dont really like the idea of reading books or doing something like codeacademy. Because from my point of view, there is not enough practice, for example, in the above courses there is organized assignment and things. Which help to improve better. Maybe I'm wrong

I first went and tried WGU academy, and I got a taste for how WGU runs. I used to be pretty good at math, but haven't touched it in roughly 10 years. WGU academy's pre-calculus course/book is set up for someone who already knows the material. My husband, a former math/science textbook editor and math major, agrees with me. I had to rely on him and udemy to get through the course because I actually wanted to learn.
I was told that most WGU classes are laid out like that and decided to move forward the study.com route.
Definitely do CS50.
Some of the study.com courses are very well done, and some you will have to reach for outside resources to complete your learning, much like WGU, but with a bit more guidance.

Retrain something in the IT field (Customer Service Support Role, Programming role, Sales role)?
A start could be a free course on the internet to try yourself out and see if you like it. Download VSCode (for Windows) and learn some little Python and see if you like it.
