Course description:

If you’re an office worker, student, administrator, or just want to become more productive with your computer, programming will allow you write code that can automate tedious tasks. This course follows the popular (and free!) book, Automate the Boring Stuff with Python.

Automate the Boring Stuff with Python was written for people who want to get up to speed writing small programs that do practical tasks as soon as possible. You don’t need to know sorting algorithms or object-oriented programming, so this course skips all the computer science and concentrates on writing code that gets stuff done.

This course is for complete beginners and covers the popular Python programming language. You’ll learn basic concepts as well as:

Web scraping
Parsing PDFs and Excel spreadsheets
Automating the keyboard and mouse
Sending emails and texts
And several other practical topics

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to write code that not only dramatically increases your productivity, but also be able to list this fun and creative skill on your resume.

Full details
Office workers, students, small/home business workers, and administrators would want to improve their productivity.
Aspiring software engineers who want to add skills to their programming toolbelt.
Computer users who have heard the “learn to code” message, but want practical reasons to learn programming.
Experienced Python software engineers can skip the first half of the course, but may find the later parts that cover various third-party modules helpful.
While this course doesn’t cover specific devops tools, this course would be useful for QA, devops, and admins who want to learn scripting in Python.

“Overall Nicely put through course. End Section could have been more with elaboration, a nice end to end program incorporating everything in end section would do wonders to this course” (Sachin Kushwaha)

“Just finished the course and it was quite good. I don’t know what it is but the way Al explains things really keeps your attention in the course and he shows up quite well the different things and ways of doing things in each lecture. At the end of the course it may get a little frustrating downloading the modules but hey, this things tend to change so it is logical to run into troubles not detailed in the original videos, just stay calm and look for a solution, frequently the Q&A sections can point you in the right direction. Looking forward to see more courses, Al! 🙂
Kind regards,
Carlos García” (Carlos Garcia)

“best way 2 learn python! Kinda wish he went more in depth about window focus on a walkthru on how he creates the bot program to work with applications and flash(ex sushi bot, or Diablo2 etc) Overall im very happy though!” (Panguins)
