Student Reviews

"Hi Estefania, I really like this python course for beginners. It is your way of explaining the material, but also your many exercises in between and the graphic representation of the learning content. You do it great and I enjoy the excursions into the world of programming with you. Thanks!" - Gregor Burghardt.

"Great course for those new to Python. Also a good refresher for those who have not done programming for a while" - Rhoda La Madrid.

"Fantastic teacher, I really enjoy learning from Estefania, she is explain every detail in a way that I learn with out any question left in my mind about what she teach in each section, this teacher is the first that make me get what I watch, after many courses I try to watch and learn with no luck, all other teachers I watch had no consistency and get tired explain, thank you Estefania for you great courses, I will enroll to all of python courses from you." - Bill.
