How to start coding even if you've never coded before

Hi there,

Welcome to Python 101 – your first step to learning how to program using Python.

Python is in the top 3 most popular programming languages in the world. BIt’s easy to learn, easy to read, and easy to write, plus Python is incredibly powerful.

Some of the things you can create with Python are:

  • Websites

  • Automation tools for your home

  • APIs

  • Artificial intelligence

  • Machine learning

  • Mathematical algorithms

  • Scraping tools

  • And more…

Some of the most popular companies in the world use and support Python, too. Such as:

  • Google who owns YouTube (made with Python)

  • Facebook who owns Instagram (made with Python)

  • Dropbox (made with Python)

  • You get the point.. there’s a lot of them!

And in 2021 you will definitely want to know Python as it becomes more powerful and more popular. As it grows, so will job demand for Python programmers. The nice thing is: Python is easy to learn and quick to get a hang of.

But why use Python instead of other languages like Java?

Python is consistently the top choice for new programmers – not because it’s beginner-friendly, but because it’s easy to read and write. You don’t have to learn all sorts of new rules or write crazy letters beside each other. Python is made in such a way you can literally just read through your code like it’s a book. No other language has that kind of power. Plus it’s fast and scales well when there’s a lot of use, unlike Node.js.

How much effort will this course take?

Barely any! I’ve taught thousands of people how to program using Python and I’ve designed a perfect beginner course. I expect this course to take you about 7 hours in total, that’s including all the small tasks at the end of almost every lesson and the final project.

Why Kalob as your instructor?

Hello, I’m Kalob, your instructor through Python 101. I’m a seasoned Python programmer, senior web developer, and have taught tens of thousands of people how to code using Python. I have helped people learn to make websites with absolutely no prior experience and then helped them land their first job at companies like Google, AWS, Facebook, Netflix, and more.

I write Python every day, even for my hobby projects. It’s my #1 choice for a programming language and I’m passionate about it. And once you start learning Python, I’m confident you’ll be passionate about it as well.

Can I take this class if I’m on Windows, macOS, or Linux?

Yes, of course, you can! There are only a few small cases where you would do things differently on Windows than on macOS, and I show you all the commands for every operating system in this course.

Heads up! macOS and Linux are very similar operating systems behind the scenes. So we only need to cover one of them to learn both. Windows is the oddball, but it’s still supported in this course.


You will need a few things to get started in this course. First, a text editor like VS Code. And then you’ll need to download and install Python.

  • Download VS Code for free

  • Download Python for free

Thank you for reading through this course description. I hope you choose Python as your programming language — if you do, I promise you won’t regret it.

Happy coding!
