In this highly interactive course with individual & group tasks as well as live coding sessions, we will go through the Python programming basics and even touch upon advanced subjects that are relevant to becoming a pro in object-oriented programming. All major concepts will be explained and discussed using individual and group exercises. After this course, you should be confident in working with major variable types, if-statements, loops, functions and imports.

However, what sets this course apart from any other Python programming courses, is that the lecturer will explain tips and tricks on how to fix bugs, emphasise on how to research unknown functionalities using Stackoverflow (or other platforms) and show you how you can get started with your own personal Python projects. At the end of the course, you'll gain access to all course material and exercises online, which can be used as a cheat sheet for future programming efforts.
