This track introduces you to the fundamentals of programming. We will show you how a computer program is written, what its basic building blocks are, and how it should be structured. We’ll teach you how a program makes decisions with if statements and how it can repeat instructions with for and while loops. You will be able to read and save information from files. Finally, we’ll show you the basic data structures: lists, dictionaries, sets, and tuples, as well as the most common ways to work with them. Sounds cool? We invite you to the wonderful world of programming.

We believe the best way to learn programming is through writing code. Our courses are fully interactive for this reason. Each exercise has a little bit of reading, a working code example, and a problem for you to solve by writing your own piece of code. Some exercises ask you to mimic the given example closely, while others require you to write a program from scratch. This way, our courses are jam-packed with practice. By the end of each course, you’ll have written dozens of little programs. Do not be afraid—we will lead you through everything.

You will learn Python 3, the most popular programming language today. It’s very common as the first programming language: it has a clear syntax, enforces good coding practices, and has many tools. We think it's the perfect language to start with, and it is used in a variety of contexts:

  • as a general-purpose programming language to write web apps and other applications
  • as a scripting language to automate repetitive and mundane computer tasks
  • for data science and machine learning to process large amounts of data
  • as a language for testing applications
  • by hobbyists to play with their toy projects

Starting with Python as your first programming language allows you to transition smoothly into many different careers: software engineering, data science, data engineering, testing, and others.

We design our courses so that they teach not only the specific syntax but also general programming basics. In addition to Python-specific functions and features, we want you to gain broader knowledge as a great foundation for learning other programming languages ​​and extending your coding portfolio.

What’s in it for me?

  • A smooth entry into the world of coding. No prior experience, extra software, or practice data sets needed.
  • A well-defined learning track with 5 fully interactive courses. This comprehensive track contains everything you need in one place. The courses are logically arranged, and the instructional process is carefully designed for beginners.
  • Proven learning efficiency. Don’t learn just the concepts. Get hands-on practice with our real code editor and exercises based on real-life scenarios.
  • Online certification. After successfully completing each course, you will receive a certificate you can add to your LinkedIn profile.
  • A trusted support system. Every course comes with access to our resource base, support from a mentor and from a community of students, and technical support. You can also join our learning community and participate in on-task discussions.
  • Hints and more. If you get stuck, you can leverage the included exercise hints. Or use the Discuss tab to ask questions and share insights with other members of the LearnPython community. You can also drop us a line at contact@learnpython.com — we'll be more than happy to help!
