Hi everyone, my name is Bo Milanovich and welcome to my course - Python Getting Started. I have been a Python developer for a long time and I am super excited to share my knowledge of this awesome programming language!

With Python, you can build web apps, desktop apps, do scientific computations, create scripts, artificial intelligence software - even home automation software!

This course is a getting started course to developing Python applications, and you don’t need prior experience with Python at all.

Some of the major topics we will cover include:

  • Installing Python on every major operating system
  • Learning the syntax and the basic features of the language
  • Developing a console application and converting it into a web app
  • Creating Executable files and Setup wizards from our Python app
By the end of this course you’ll know the basics of Python programming and be ready to develop applications on your own.

From here, continue learning by diving into Python frameworks and libraries with courses on:
  • Django for web development
  • TensorFlow for Artificial Intelligence
  • SciPy for scientific computations
  • PyQt for cross-platform desktop applications
I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn Python with the Python: Getting Started course, at Pluralsight.
