Our Learn Python curriculum is taught at Columbia Business School. Over the past three years our lessons have been refined with feedback from the thousands of business leaders and MBA students who have taken this course.
By the end of this course, you will know how to write Python scripts, grab data from an API, work with Flask (a powerful Python framework), and build a simple website using Python.
Hi 👋! My name is Mattan Griffel, and I'm going to be your instructor. Who am I? I'm a co-founder of One Month and an adjunct professor at Columbia University Business School where I teach Python to MBAs. In this first lesson, I'll set expectations for the course, as well as answer the question: Can you really learn Python in just a month? Let's get started!
Python is a general-purpose programming language that has wide application in various fields. In this lesson, we look at some areas in which Python is used, for example in web development, desktop app development, data science, building Internet of Things, creating distributed systems, etc. What can you do with Python? There are many, many cool things! We take a look, as well as cover what you will learn in this course.
You might be wondering: How and why should I start learning Python? To help you answer that, we’ll look at various programming languages and compare a few popular ones with Python. You'll find out why Python is a useful tool to have under your belt whether you are learning your first language or looking to learn an additional one. You’ll find out why Python is especially a good language to learn for first-time developers.
