Recently we interviewed Fletcher Heisler who decided that he was not satisfied with the resources for learning python online so he set out to create his own course called “Real Python: An introduction to Python through practical examples. The kickstarter was a massive success he only wanted $800 but was funded by over $20,000 in the end by over 1000 people!
We understand that not all of you have the funds to pay for the course. The kickstarter has now ended and the course is now available on Fletcher’s website for $12 including free updates for life, resource sheeds and practical examples. Thanks to Fletcher we have 3 copies to give away to you – our readers.
If you want to get started learning programming Python is no worse then any other language to start with, the course will cater for people of all levels and Fletcher has told us that anyone should be able to learn python through the templates and examples and exercises that he provides.
More about the course:
An e-book to teach programming through hands-on, interesting examples that are useful and fun!
