About this course

Python Development is a course for beginners with absolutely no background in coding. We will get you up to speed with practical knowledge and skills in Python, so you'll be equipped with the basic skills used by actual professional analysts and developers in the tech community in Singapore.

Python is consistently ranked in either first or second place as the most in-demand programming languages across the job market. It has applications in data science, machine learning, web development, self-driving cars, automation, and many many other disciplines. There has never been a better time to learn it!

This Python course in Singapore will be your first step towards other advanced and exciting fields such as Data Science, Cybersecurity, and Deep Learning.

This Python course is an unique experience for beginners to master all the fundamentals of programming. This Python course is a hybrid between a typical classroom lecture and hands on interactive coding. You get over 15 hours of in-depth training and meticulously created exercises and quizzes to test your knowledge as you go. This course is all about getting you writing code ASAP, rather than sitting back and listening.

This Python course is perfect for people without prior programming or coding background. You are not required to have a basic understanding of Python if you want to register for this course.

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to code in Python at an intermediate level and be fully prepared to take on our other course offerings such as Data Science Introduction (Python)* and Computer Vision (Python)*. Students will graduate with a standalone marketable job skill in Singapore.


By the end of the course, you will be able to think algorithmically, frame problems logically, and articulate solutions like a coder. In the course, you'll be coding interactive games, building functional scripts, learn the basics of Python software design, reading in tabular data and performing data visualisations.

Students will graduate with the expertise and confidence to seek employment opportunities as a Python software engineer in the fields of data science or web development.

You'll learn:
- Python operations, conditionals, arrays, and basic object-oriented programming
- Python syntax, features and benefits
- Debugging errors in your code
- Jupyter Notebooks
- Pandas library
- Simple data visualisations
