Python Immersive [Online and Onsite]

Python Immersive is a one - week coding bootcamp that was specifically designed for people who have never coded before. The goal of this course is to build a fundamental understanding of Python programming and to get you started with coding on your own.

We provide aspiring learners with cornerstone knowledge of programming and the core structure of Python.

We provide you with the tools you need to develop an A-to-Z knowledge of Python programming form, as well as foundational knowledge important for any person who codes. We spend a great deal of time on built-in data types and their behavior, and Control Flow Statements, which are both essential to programming in many languages.

Furthermore, we show how to professionally structure your programs and solve the real world challenges by creating objects in Object-Oriented Programming. As we explain all of these concepts, we also point out and discuss the most common coding interview questions and demonstrate the best programming practices in real professional life.

What to Expect

This is a one-of-a-kind, practical course. We start coding 10 minutes after we install Python on your computer, and our goal is to get you started coding on your own as soon as possible. With the help of our instructors, you can start coding without the fear of hitting a wall.

A typical day in our Python Immersive starts at 10 am with a recap of the previous day, and completion of previous exercises. Lecturing on new topics takes about two hours and starts at around 12 pm. We strongly believe in learning by doing and practicing. After lecture, students work on programming exercises with instructor guidance. Around 3 pm, students present and discuss their work with instructors and gain useful feedback regarding alternative solutions and best practices from instructors. We keep our class sizes small – around 3-5 people per class – so that everyone can get one-on-one attention and be able to ask as many questions as needed to gain the best understanding of the material possible. Python Immersive is a registered trademark of Practical Programming.

Hi there! Yes, sure, If you cannot attend classes for which you were charged, you could join the next cohort and make up the missed classes. Hope this helps!

Will you help to get a job after the course is done or we have to find ourselves?

Hi there! Practical Programming cannot guarantee any jobs, it all depends on how hard a person practice Python. Hope this helps!

Yes, absolutely

Do you provide any written materials, if yes could I keep them? Can I contact instructors after the course if I have any questions?
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
We will provide you with written materials and Python code examples as an online coursepack.
Question from Andrew D.
Why do you not provide a weekend version?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Andrew! They will, but there is Python for Data Science very close version to Python Immersive, just slightly different flavor. You may click the link here:
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
There is plenty of information available for free online; however, having an instructor to show you the fundamentals can get you started on the right path. If you work on it a few hours a day, you might learn the basics in a few months.

Now we have a weekend course.

Question from K
This entire course is only 5 days?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Yes, this course is for 5 days, 7 hours every day. Hope this helps!
Question from K
How does a 5-day course provide enough information for an entry-level programming job? I know nothing about coding or programming, and I am finding it hard to believe I will learn anything in 5 days. I don’t even know what Python is.
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
The first step would be to research about Python Programming Language and decide if you want to spend time learning Python. In Python Immersive we explain the core of Python, built-in data types, data structures behavior, the common interview questions and Big-O notation. I would require hard work on your side, homework assignments and practice. We don't want you to invest your time and money unless you are absolutely going to get the result you are committed to at the beginning of this course.
Question from anonymous
Hi, Do you create the materials on your own? Or are they taken off the internet and taught? And if they are taken off the internet, which most likely it is, can I get just get the material, so I don't waste my money?
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
Python Immersive is not about lectures, this is not a history class. Python Immersive is about how to build stuff on your own, it is a constant process of lectures, guidance, debugging and hard work.
Answer from Art Y. Verified Educator
I love stackoverflow, however very often people giving advises on stackoverflow has no fundamental understanding of programming, so many funny examples, like use iterate through Pandas DataFrame with a for loop. I guess people have no idea how to write an efficient code.
Answer from anonymous
Stackoverflow if you checked the model has community voting on the answers given. That means the best answers are filtered. It's more reliable than some coding schools teaching.

Will this class be offered in October or November? Thanks!
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! As of now, that's the only available dates for this class. We really can't say when will it be offered again. You can add it to your wish-list so you can be notified via email when new updates are made on the website.
Question from David
I see the reviews saying this is a 2 week class. Just confirming this is a one week class?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi David! Yes, this is a one week class, Monday to Friday, 10 am to 5 pm. Hope this helps!
Question from saul
How well would this work if I can only be there part of the day some days (i.e., attend from 10-3:30 MWF, and 10-1 plus 3:30-5 T/Th)? Possible or impossible?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Yes, this is possible, just advise the instructor in advance on the time you'll be leaving and coming back to class. Also, you could take this course again with a new cohort.

Impossible. You're wasting your time and money

Python Immersive
Reviewed by Hannah C. on 3/1/2020
I started learning python on an online platform almost a year ago and felt that I had completely players like plateaued. I loved the Python immersive course and was able to learn much more in a week than I had on my own over the span of around 8 months. I now I feel fully confident in my ability to continue my python learning independently and I know where to turn when I'm ready to enroll in my next programming course.
