Welcome to one of the unique programming Bootcamp experiences you will ever get. The most critical difference between my course and others is:

Going beyond knowledge: With me, you get really skilled.

  • The course covers basic to advanced modern Python 3 syntax. Beginners will learn a lot!

  • The course helps you master the 4 most important skills for a programmer

    • Programming skills

    • Problem-solving skills: rarely covered by other courses

    • Project building skills: partially covered by other courses

    • Design skills: rarely covered by other courses

  • 7+ times practice & homework compare to other courses + many (real) projects

  • Special Teaching style: iterative, easy, and short

    • In a few minutes, I cover clearly what many others need 2-3 times to explain

  • This is an English Course only.

Content

  • Fundamentals: Variables, Loops, Control Flow, lists, tuples, sets, Dictionary, Functions, Recursive Functions

  • Object-Oriented Programming (OOP):

    • Objects, Classes, Abstraction, Inheritance, Polymorphism, Operator Overloading

    • Embedded in homework: Several design principles & patterns

  • SpecialTopics: Files, Exception Handling, Decorators, Generators, Popular modules

  • A huge set of Quizzes, Practice, Homework, and Projects

    • 2 styles of homework: Algorithmic (problem-solving) and applications

    • Several software design concerns are embedded in the homework.

    • So you are getting introduced to Software Engineering & Design Patterns

    • Several quizzes to master the concepts

Building Skills: Practice, Homework, and Projects

  • One unique feature in this course is my education strategy:

    • Explain, Administrate & Challenge

  • Each video smoothly explains a simple concept(s)

  • Typically followed by easy to medium practice to administrate the concept

  • Then typically followed by an easy-medium-hard set of homework questions to challenge you

  • Extensive homework from easy to medium to hard to help to build the skills.

  • Most of the practice/homework questions are unique in this course

    • Programming questions are mainly from my competitive programming experience

    • OOP questions are mostly invented to achieve several goals:

      • Mastering the OOP concepts

      • Enforcing a lot of design heuristics & OOD

      • Preparing you for design principles and patterns

  • Small-to-large set of projects to build up project building and design skills

  • Solutions to all of them.

By the end of the journey

  • Solid understanding of programming concepts and its Python syntax

  • Mastering the target 4 skills

  • With the administered problem-solving skills

    • You can start competitive programming smoothly in Div2-A/B Codeforces

    • Smooth start in Data Structure course

    • Smooth start in Algorithms course

  • With the administered project-building and design skills

    • Smooth start in Software Engineering course

    • Later, smooth start in one of the technology tracks in frontend or backend

  • More career options such as games or embedded development.

What are the common complaints from programming courses?

  • Limited topics coverage.

  • Outdated syntax.

  • Unnecessary long videos with repetitions.

  • Too much time to explain basic concepts.

  • A sudden jump in the level. I can’t cope with the content.

  • Assumptions of previous knowledge to understand some of the concepts.

  • Building over concepts that were not mastered through practice or homework.

  • The same examples are used over and over.

  • Several consecutive lectures without practice or homework to master the concepts.

  • Awesome knowledge, almost zero skills.

  • Very little practice or homework.

  • Good homework in the first half and very weak in the remaining.

  • Many homework without solutions.

  • Only one project.

  • Small-size project.

  • Long but tedious project.

  • The project doesn’t help enforce the concepts.

  • Project source code is not provided. I needed to compare and learn.

  • Moving to Datastructures or Algorithms course was not easy. Weak problem-solving skills.

  • After the course, I am still stuck and can’t do even simple projects. Weak project-building skills.

  • The course taught OOP syntax and concepts nicely, but OOD skills are not built. Weak design-skills.

  • And more!

In this course, not only the content and skills are unique and added value, but also the whole experience to avoid as possible the above concerns and much more! Even if you attended a programming course, my material will be an added value, especially its homework and projects.

Don’t miss such a unique learning experience!

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
