Start learning Python with a hands-on, in-person bootcamp with expert instructor Ted Petrou. Courses are available between one and two days.
All in-person bootcamps have been postponed for the rest of 2020 due to COVID-19. Stay safe!
Get a comprehensive introduction to Python with engaging live coding, practical exercises, and an expert instructor. Walk away with a solid grasp of the fundamentals and a direct path towards mastery.
Ted Petrou teaches all classes and has over 1,000 hours of in-person instruction experience. He is the author of numerous books including Exercise Python and is the creator of the libraries Dexplo and Dexplot. Ted is constantly improving and upgrading the material to ensure it is of the highest quality.
Watching others code gives the false impression of learning. In reality, learning is demonstrated when you complete tasks yourself. During class, you will be given ample time to complete exercises and projects. Ted is very dedicated during this time to ensure students get the help they need.
You will not be able to master all the fundamentals of Python in any short course. However, upon completion of this course, you will be given a direct path towards mastering these fundamentals. Completing this path will earn you a certificate of completion.
+, is used to add two numbers. The result of an operator is always a new value (
5 + 7returns
12). You will learn about arithmetic, comparison, and boolean operators.
The Intro to Python Bootcamp targets those who have little to no programming experience and would like a slow and thorough introduction to the most important fundamentals of the Python programming language.
Class time is divided between live coding sessions delivered by Ted and hands-on practice exercises and projects that you complete. During the live coding, you are provided an outline of the topics that Ted will cover as a Jupyter Notebook. You can code right along with Ted, exploring how the commands work, and ask questions.
During student exercises, you will be writing Python code to solve problems. Ted is always available to provide help directly at your seat and is constantly seeking out students who may be in need of extra support.
Everyone who registers gets a digital copy of Exercise Python ($49 value), a course by Ted Petrou with 300+ pages, 150+ exercises, projects and detailed solutions. It contains more topics that are not able to be covered during the in-person class. You will have lifetime access to it.
This course is taught by Ted Petrou, an expert at Python, data exploration and machine learning. Ted is the author of the highly rated text Pandas Cookbook. Ted has taught hundreds of students Python and data science during in-person classroom settings. He sees first hand exactly where students struggle and continually upgrades his material to minimize these struggles by providing a simple and direct path forward.
Ted is one of the foremost authorities on using the pandas library to do data analysis. His blog posts have totaled well over 1 million views. He is also a prolific contributor on Stack Overflow having answered over 400 questions. He is an enthusiastic instructor and dedicates his time to helping students at their desk during exercises to ensure understanding.
Ted holds a master's degree in statistics from Rice University and is the author of Exercise Python, Master Data Analysis with Python, and Master Machine Learning with Python.
Part of the intrigue of an in-person class is the social interaction and camaraderie formed between yourself and the other students. This fellowship is mainly absent when taking an online class or watching a recorded video. Many friendships and potential career opportunities are formed between the students that attend Ted's classes.
Ted works hard to use fun real-world examples that showcase the power of Python.
And if you are looking for proof, just take a look at the immense joy radiating from the faces of the students in the picture to the left.

Ted began programming 22 years ago by building games on his Texas Instruments graphing calculator and has been programming ever since.
He has taught over 1,000 hours of in-person python, data science, and machine learning courses. He is constantly striving to learn more, refine his material, and produce the absolute best possible class each time he teaches.
Ted's biggest accomplishments in Python have been authoring the Dexplo and Dexplot libraries that are meant as alternatives to pandas and seaborn. Ted has answered over 400 questions on Stack Overflow.
Yes. Just send me a message by clicking the chatbox below or email me at [email protected] and I'll connect you to a former student who can answer your questions.
There are plans to make a similar course available online for those that want to learn from the comfort of their own home. This current course offered on this page is an in-person-only course.
No, not at this time. The course is already reasonably priced and the plan is to raise prices once there is more visibility. Once prices are raised closer to the market average, discounts will be given to students or the unemployed.
