Woot! I finally finished Codeacademy’s python course!

Capture

 

It took me ages to complete this course, but I can finally remove it from my to do list of this year! 🙂
I’ve learned loads, and I strongly recommend to bot anyone who wants to learn this language from scratch and to those who want to improve their fundamentals.
This course is really well explained and if you get stuck you can always turn on the hints or read people’s questions in the q&a forum.

Below you can find the entire course structure:


Python Syntax

This tutorial will introduce you to Python, a general-purpose, object-oriented interpreted language you can use for countless standalone projects or scripting applications.

Tip Calculator

Now that you’ve completed the lesson on Python syntax, let’s see if you can put your newfound skills to use. In this project, you’ll create a simple calculator that determines the price of a meal after tax and tip.

Strings & Console Output

This course will introduce you to strings and console output in Python, including creating string literals, calling a variety of string methods, and using the “print” keyword.

Date and Time

This project is a follow up to Unit 2: Strings and Console input and will give you practice with the concepts introduced in that course.

Conditionals & Control Flow

In this course, we’ll learn how to create programs that generate different outcomes based on user input!

PygLatin

In this project we’ll put together all of the Python skills we’ve learned so far including string manipulation and branching. We’ll be building a Pyg Latin translator. (That’s Pig Latin for Python Programmers!)

Functions

A function is a reusable section of code written to perform a specific task in a program. We gave you a taste of functions in Unit 3; here, you’ll learn how to create your own.

Taking a Vacation

Hard day at work? Rough day at school? Take a load off with a programming vacation!

Python Lists and Dictionaries

Lists and dictionaries are powerful tools you can use to store, organize, and manipulate all kinds of information.

A Day at the Supermarket

Let’s manage our own supermarket and buy some goods along the way!

Student Becomes the Teacher

Use what you’ve learned so far to manage your own class.

Lists and Functions

Now that you’ve learned about lists, let’s turbo-charge them with functions.

Battleship!

In this project we will make a simplified version of the classic board game Battleship! We’ll use functions, lists, and conditionals to make our game.

Loops

Loops allow you to quickly iterate over information in Python. In this lesson, we’ll cover two types of loop: ‘while’ and ‘for’.

Practice Makes Perfect

You know a lot of Python now. Let’s do some practice problems!

Exam Statistics

Your students just took their first test. It’s time to see how everyone did. Let’s write a program to compute the mean, variance, and standard deviation of the test scores.

Advanced Topics in Python

In this lesson, we’ll cover some of the more complex aspects of Python, including iterating over data structures, list comprehensions, list slicing, and lambda expressions.

Introduction to Bitwise Operators

Bitwise operations directly manipulate bits—patterns of 0s and 1s. Though they can be tricky to learn at first, their speed makes them a useful addition to any programmer’s toolbox.

Introduction to Classes

Classes are a crucial part of object-oriented programming (OOP). In this course, we’ll explain what classes are, why they’re important, and how to use them effectively.

Classes

Make your own Car and learn how to driveCar()!

File Input/Output

Now that you understand Python syntax and have been introduced to some Python best practices, let’s apply what you’ve learned to a real-world application: writing data to a file.
