In this course, taught by Bob Belderbos (software developer and Python coach), you'll learn how to solve problems using Python and do it the Pythonic way.
This is not just a video course to watch or a book to passively read. We'll have you writing code from the get-go.
You will get stuck! Expect to hit roadblocks ("Why does my code fail?", "Why do the tests fail?!"). This is EXACTLY what you need to become confident in Python.
So yes, we will teach you the concepts, and we'll solve the 10 Introductory Bite exercises together, but this course works best if you are willing to put in the effort to attempt the exercises yourself first.
The reward is more than worth it: not only do you get a better feel (mindset) for writing Python but having this experience and the practical idioms / tricks up your sleeves, will make you more confident in your coding skills.
Finishing the 10 intro Bite exercises, you'll earn your first PyBites White Ninja Belt and the PyBites Beginner Certificate.
Most people that got to this point built the necessary basics to go all in and, over the ensuing months coded Python projects and landed software jobs. That's the power of our exercises: they prepare you well!
If you're after specifics, in this course you will learn about conditionals, looping, work with basic data structures, list comprehensions, commonly used string manipulation methods, asking a user for input, string formatting and f-strings, basic exception handling, counting numbers,
namedtuples, a bit of regular expressions,
enumerate, and more ...

We will teach you why some solutions are better than others and dig up golden nuggets from our Bite forums.
We are really excited to present this distilled knowledge in an accessible way that will get you results fast.
We don't expect you to fully buy into this yet though.
We believe so much in the practical methods we are teaching you here and that if you implement them consistently you will become a better programmer.
That said, if you don't learn anything new and/or are not happy with the course and let us know within the first month, we'll refund you your money and you keep the access to the course. The risk is on us to make this work for you.
With that out of the way, what are you waiting for? Let's get coding!
