Course Description

If you're an office worker, student, administrator, or just want to become more productive with your computer, programming will allow you write code that can automate tedious tasks. 

Python From Zero to Automation was written for people who want to get up to speed writing small programs that do practical tasks as soon as possible. You don't need to know sorting algorithms or object-oriented programming, so this course skips all the computer science and concentrates on writing code that gets stuff done.

The course is designed to take you from a complete beginner in Python to being able to automate tasks using this language. You will start with a short introduction to the basics of the Python programming language, including data types, control structures, functions, and file handling. From there, you will learn more advanced concepts such as regular expressions, web scraping, and desktop and browser automation.

  • Automating the browser

  • Sending emails and texts

  • And several other practical topics

We'll take you step-by-step through engaging video tutorials and teach you everything you need to know to succeed as a Python developer.

By the end of this course, you'll be able to write code that not only dramatically increases your productivity, but also be able to add this new skill on your resume.
