I can't speak for the python OSU courses, but when I was teaching myself python, I found Ardit Sulce's Python Megacourse on Udemy to be incredibly valuable. I think it was on sale for $12 at the time.

I just finished this course now - I really enjoyed it as well. Had some background before and this was just right for me. On some of the applications I made it more difficult for myself, i.e. substituting tkinter with PyQt5 and learning QT Designer, or changing MySQL to PostgreSQL to learn that as well.

This is the class I have been taking on Udemy to learn Python and I am very happy with it:
The teacher knows his stuff and is a good teacher too boot.

I followed this course by Ardit sulche. A few sections like flask and oop were a little hard to understand but other than that I think it is a great course for beginners.

> know there's one on udemy
always wait for udemy courses to go on sale
they go on sale just about every 10 to 14 days
and that's how much you'll pay for them $10 to $14
this is on sale right now

It's on sale right now. I got it for $10 when I took it. But it's definitely worth the current $18. It will give you a great introduction to Python.

book with real-world projects
can i find somethink like this udemy course 'The Python Mega Course: Build 10 Real World Applications' https://www.udemy.com/course/the-python-mega-course/ but in the form of a book?
I simply prefer books over videos.

And again sounds like a great idea, but will it still be so if you're only hearing lectures online do to the covid situation, or the school/professor is not one to tutor or explain the full speed lectures ? So consider checking that out before you make a commitment. I want you to be successful eitehrway and spend the least!
Also, its possible that you might find more inspiration from one of the courses that focuses more on projects as MANy beginner courses do not and that can discourage us when we do lots of typing and DONT build anything

Asta de un curs destul de ok de Python: https://www.udemy.com/course/the-python-mega-course/
Te trece prin notiuni de baza, cateva biblioteci interesante si ajungi sa faci si niste proiectele micute.

I found this course particularly useful which is where I learned to work with datasets. https://www.udemy.com/course/the-python-mega-course/learn/lecture/15491982#overview See section 15 in particular. There are of course otherwise a lot of free resources out there! Good luck.

I had very little experience with programming prior, and the first course I bought on Udemy was "The Python Mega Course":
I'm sure that some will object to the way it teaches you Python, but for me it worked really well. It's mainly a learning-by-doing process, instead of a long course of abstract explanations of different aspects of programming. In the introduction you just learn the very basic syntax of python, the basic data types, looping, basic functions, etc. , and after that each chapter has you building some a functioning application using a variety of python libraries which can be quite empowering. You build a GUI, a web app, a web scraper, a sort of book store inventory system using a SQLlite database... all sorts of things really.

I learned a lot with The Python Megacourse on Udemy:
1 points • argento8897
I enjoyed this course a lot. For me, building something along with the instructor helped a lot of concepts I wasn't getting stick a lot.
1 points • undead2018
I had a similar issue. This course helped me https://www.udemy.com/course/the-python-mega-course/
P.S.1 not affiliated or anything
P.S.2 obv dont buy it for 100$. wait till it cost 15$ as udemy does once a month.

Try https://www.udemy.com/course/the-python-mega-course/ . Yes, the title is a bit clickbait-like but building a course is difficult - and having it updated frequently is a sign of having a committed teacher. Some languages and frameworks can evolve quickly, so a course that was up-to-date in 2017 may be hopelessly outdated in 2021.
Software development isn't a 24-hour thing or even a 3-month bootcamp thing; it's life-long learning and the knowledge you have will have a half-life (i.e. what you knew 5 years ago is only worth half of what it used to be).
Thinking like a software engineer requires you to model and deconstruct; this is something that's quite tough to teach in a course. However, this knowledge will be reusable in other applications and languages.

Critique my Learning plan for Data Engineering?
I have completed a data analyst internship and am set to graduate in december 2020 with a stats degree. Ideally, I would like to get an entry level Data Engineer job, if not that, then a Backend Engineer job or a Data Analyst.
I have decent experience with SQL and Python from my internship (though my python still needs some work), some rudimentary unix and git knowledge too.
I am currently doing the Data Engineer track on Datacamp. It seems pretty easy so far, thought its pretty good for learning different technologies (surface level at least).
After the Data Engineering track, I plan to do: https://www.udemy.com/course/the-python-mega-course/. The python project course and some projects on my own to improve on my python skills.
I read that backend engineering has a lot of overlap with data engineering, so its good to know some. Django:https://www.udemy.com/course/python-and-django-full-stack-web-developer-bootcamp/.
For Data Engineering theory and cloud practice, I plan on doing: https://www.udemy.com/course/data-engineering-on-google-cloud-platform/ and https://www.udemy.com/course/sql-nosql-big-data-hadoop/.
My Questions are: 1) Is this enough to land an entry level data engineering job?
2)The datacamp tracks delves into Scala and Spark a bit too. Are there any others resources that I should look into? How important is knowing Scala, considering now Pyspark is almost as good as Scala Spark.
3)Should I spend more time learning Java or Scala? I'm worried I may be pigeonholing myself if I spent a lot of time on Scala, considering its not really used outside of DE and Java is among the most used language out there.
4) Is the web development course worth doing? I noticed an increasing amount of data engineers need to have a decent knowledge of this to present their final solutions to the business and for the business or the DS team to use.
5) Queuing and Streaming systems such as Kafka and Spark Streaming. Not sure what the best way to learn this. I guess:https://www.udemy.com/course/apache-kafka-for-beginners/ https://www.udemy.com/course/kafka-streams-real-time-stream-processing-master-class/
6) For SQL, can some recommend a more advanced course? I know joins, aggregates, create and insert, subqueries. Not so good with window functions and DB theory
7) Am I missing any other resources . Any other tips/resources would be very appreciated. Thanks for your time!

Search programming in this sub and you will get plenty of useful recommendations, such as here https://www.reddit.com/r/povertyfinance/comments/dn7z0r/how_to_get_into_computer_programmingcoding_and/
If you have some money to spend, this course for Python in uDemy seems promising: The Python Mega Course: Build 10 Real World Applications
I would note that coding is not for everyone. If you have the mindset to find programming interesting, then it is well-worth self-teaching. As long as you can demonstrate what you have learned, you will have success finding entry-level jobs.

Hey dear, I would advice looking into other financial options than cashing out the 401k. Also coding is not something you need to specifically pay for. So if you have not been to university at all after high school see if you are eligible for a pell grant. Go to a local community college and ask for advice about financial aid. WGU has online degrees that are well regarded. There is also Year Up program. Student loans are an option. Also before jumping in do a cheap udemy course like this one to see if it is for you. https://www.udemy.com/course/the-python-mega-course/, do problems on leetcode.com when you have the basics down. Browse https://www.reddit.com/r/cscareerquestions/ and https://www.reddit.com/r/ITCareerQuestions/.

It depends on what you want. I will give you 4 recommendations, but just be aware that Python ecosystem is huge so you will have many options depending on what you want.
Some of the books most similar to Hartl's , but for Python/Django are the William Vicents Books
If you prefer one only about Python, this is a very introductory book.. with several short, but not trivial projects
If you prefer a video course, these Udemy course has good reviews.
Finally if you want to start doing ML projects,[ this book by Francois Chollet] (https://www.manning.com/books/deep-learning-with-python) is pretty good.
