Concise Introduction to Python Programming

Wesleyan University offers a free course about the popular Python programming language, through the educational platform Coursera.

The Python programming course lasts approximately four weeks (18 hours) and is intended for students who have little or no programming experience.

According to the introduction on the course page, the objective of the course is to present the Python version 3.x programming through practical instruction.

Course instructor Bill Boyd will teach how to install Python and use the Spyder IDE (Integrated Development Environment) so that students can write and debug programs.

Boyd will show examples, each of which will be followed by a short exercise through which they will have to create something similar to solidify the concept taught.

The course is made up of four modules. At the end of each module, students will have to carry out an exercise in which they will have to write simple programs and send them for grading.

Although the course is in English, it is offered with subtitles in several languages, among which is Spanish.
