One Month Python is an introduction to programming with Python for total beginners. Python is a popular language used by companies like Google, Facebook, Dropbox, Instagram, and Reddit for all sorts of things like building websites, web scraping, data analysis, machine learning, and natural language processing. Python is designed to be easy to read while still being very powerful, which makes it an ideal language for beginners.
In this online course, you'll learn the basics of programming with Python, but with a focus on business use cases. You’ll learn how to write scripts that automate tedious tasks, read other people’s code, parse and interpret data, interact with APIs, and build web scrapers.
One Month Python is comprised of equal amounts of online video lessons that you can take at your own pace and direct interaction with the bootcamp instructors, as well as your fellow students. There are 1-2 hours of video assigned per week and you'll be asked to complete assignments and submit them to the instructor for feedback and a grade.
This course assumes no previous knowledge of programming or code. The instructor will, however, assume that you’re fairly comfortable using a computer and can navigate the internet using a web browser (Recommended: Chrome browser).
In just 30 days, One Month Python will take you from a beginner to an intermediate Python developer. Don't believe it? We guarantee it with our 100% Money-Back Guarantee* for those who complete the course.
By the end of this course, you will understand all of the fundamentals of Python programming and be ready to start coding and editing code on your own. We'll teach you how to think and how to write Python scripts that grabs data from APIs and build a web scraper that grabs data from a web page. These skills can easily be repurposed after the course to be building blocks for your next app.
You will be ready to achieve many different goals after taking One Month Python - including scoring your first Python development job, becoming a data science guru, or coding your very own app.

A. Our bootcamps are 100% online, so you can participate from anywhere in the world. You will be given access to course video lessons throughout the month, which is where you'll first learn the material.
A. Our bootcamps require around 2-4 hours per week (depending on how fast you go). That time will be spent watching video lessons and completing homework that is given to you throughout the course.
We've learned from our past students that you're 78% more likely to complete a bootcamp successfully if you're working with other people. Our online bootcamps offer a premium level of interactivity with your instructor as well as other students so you'll never feel alone on your learning journey.
A. If you want to take an intensive 8-10 week in-person course that costs thousands of dollars, then One Month isn't for you. But, if you're looking for a fast-paced intro to a computer programming language that is taught in a fun, fast and effective way at a fraction of the price and on your own schedule, you're in the right place.
