Meet the Growing Demand for Python Developers
Python, one of the most widely used programming languages in the open source community, is in high demand by employers in just about every industry. It is especially important for people interested in breaking into data science and machine learning.
Fortunately, the elegance and simplicity of Python makes it one of the easiest languages to master. In this 6.5-unit Python Specialization, you can start as a novice and, in just four to six months of hands-on practice, master the fundamentals.
This specialization includes:
- Python Programming for Beginners. Learn the fundamental principles of programming with Python, a mind-expanding, new way of thinking for novices.
- Python: Object-Oriented Programming. Gain a strong understanding of this most important programming concept, which provides the structure of most Python applications, and the basis of the language itself.
- Python for Programmers. Practice the core facilities of Python, as well as the libraries that are most important to professional programmers, and pick up the tools to create your own libraries.
Once you’ve finished with these three courses, you’ll have a competitive edge for the job market.
