Tough, but SO worth the time and money!
About 6 weeks ago, I was on this page perusing the reviews for the Rmotr course and wondering:

How it Works?
This was the first time I participated in a remote programming course. Without any doubts, it worthed the time and money that I spent here.
The advance python course is excellent for learning the stuff that other courses decide to overlook. This course covers the correct way of developing real world applications using the tools that can help you to be an asset to any programming team.
I just completed RMOTR's 4 week Advanced Python course (Oct - Nov 2016). I actually attempted to take the previous session in September, but found out quickly I was not ready due to not truely understanding the basics. Although there is a short quiz to demonstrate that you have the knowledge to qualify, be aware that this is the bare minimum. If you want to succeed, you should have a very solid foundation in Python. Despite feeling unprepared, Santiago, one of the co-founders, was extremely understanding and encouraging. He let me take the next session without any penalty, and even said I could continue with the current session.
I greatly enjoyed Rmotr's advanced python course. They gave rigorous treatment to iterators & generators, oop, decorators, and web frameworks. We also covered use of a number of popular modules & packages including SQLite, pymongo, flask, beautifulsoup among others.
What I really like was was working on real life projects during Coding Sessions. Mentors always available to help
I recently finished the Introduction to Python programming course put on by Rmotr. Coming into the course I hadspent some time familiarizing myself with the Python language through various interactive resourrces, but they all fell short when it came to learn how to actually problem solve with programming. It's a very different thing to follow a step by step process where all you have to figure out is syntax (like it's done in Codecademy etc...), compared to be given liberty to chose your own method to solve a problem. This is where Rmotr's teaching method really shines. They will let you lose to solve exercises along with your team mates, but follow up on you the moment you get stuck. This makes for a very efficient learning process where you gain confidence while not wasting your time beating your head against difficult problems.
This course gave me a lot of knew knowledge about python and tools surrounding work with python that I had no idea about! Another added benefit of the course was the community of RMOTR, which is filled with professionals and interesting individuals!
This course, while relatively short at 4 weeks, is very densly packed and takes you through prgramming in python from the very basics all the way to more advance concepts as well as touching on APIs, databases, and web development. The strength of the course is in how it's structured. In addition to readings and small homework problems, you work with other students on 3 projects every week with guidance and help from instructors and mentors. While the course requires dedication and a decent time commitment, having access to mentors means that you don't have to waste a lot of time spinning your wheels or stuck for hours on a problem. Most of your time is spent actively learning and working on projects with other students and that is why it was valuable for me. I definitely learned a lot and feel confident in recommending this course to others.
This course was one of my first when it comes to programming, and I have to say has set the bar incredibly high for any others that might follow. The teachers did an excellent job explaining concepts and project, while the mentors were always around to give us a hand if needed.
rmotr provides an awesome learning environment that pushes you to use your code in ways that help you learn at an accelerated rate. The mentors are always available at your disposal and help you solve some pretty cool projects.
The people are all friendly and fun to work with. A lot of self-motivated people with similar goals all working hard and helping each other out.
This course has been amazing. The teachers are very knowledgable and extremely helpful. Be warned, it's a lot of work, you're looking at an easy 20+ hours of week, but it's totally worth it. After the month you can feel the progress you've made. I wouldn't hesitate about taking another class from Rmotr.
Extremely helpful students, teachers, and mentors. Great course and indepth looks at advanced programming concepts and projects. This course has given me a real look at what the field requires of a programmer. I am grateful that I got a chance to work with this team and with my fellow students. If you like programming and would like to learn more and indepth, this class will do wonders.
This course was definitely a challenge, and it was definitely worth it. Rmotr's teacher and mentor teams pushed me to learn features of the language I was not familiar with through readings, lectures, examples, and exercises, and they encouraged me to ask questions along the way. They did a great job of answering my immediate questions accurately and thoroughly, and giving me good recommendations on what documents to read to go deeper. The course included an impressive 12 programming projects, and looking back on it, I am surprised at all we were able to accomplish in the short span of time the course occupied.
I'm convinced teaching is not for everybody. But Santiago and Martin got exactly what it takes, they have a gift for listening to people's questions, the patience to try to understand them, and the interest to resolve them. The program is great for intermediate and advanced Python devs, it goes through some cool stuff, like decorators and iterators. I was able to apply some of those tricks right away, at work. The networking is also fantastic, you get to meet/work with some cool people. I think the group work was my favourite part of the course, and looking at the project through the eyes of my teammates, looking at them try to solve the problem, was a great learning experience. I'm sure the course/system has some aspects that can be worked on, but you'll notice these guys are brushing up their codebase daily, pushing fixes, and just improving overall. Just for the chance of working with these instructors, and some cool teammates, the course it totally worth taking, imo.
The best part of the course was getting to work on the group projects with other students. Trying to teach yourself can be a really draining experience sometimes (I am a long time sufferer of "analysis paralysis"), so having a guided curriculum and fellow classmates was a fantastic experience.
I really valued RMOTR's synchronous online learning environment & supportive mentors and peers. My motivation comes from working with others and meeting like-minded learners from various walks of life (and various skill levels). RMOTR taps into this in a way that other online programs don't. RMOTR's interest in decreasing gender barriers and increasing the groups represented in their courses rocks too! I am really grateful to have had the opportunity to learn through RMOTR.
I've been studying Python as a hobby for a couple of years now. I made it to a certain level on my own but hit a wall that I could not get over. Taking this class helped me scale the wall and put me on a track to expand my knowledge even further. The group setting of the course is great because I was able to learn from other students just as much as I was able to learn from the RMOTR team. The work is intensive, and for a month all I did was think about coding. Now that I've finished the course, I'm writing a personal website for my family with custom applications utilizing API's and Flask.
Really appreciated how willing Santiago and the mentors were to always help. Jason always went above and beyond to spend time with my groups when we were struggling. It was nice to feel supported by the mentors despite being not as strong of a student!
RMOTR was pivitol in helping me grow my programming skills beyond a beginner level. Martin and Santiago are extremely knowledgeable and always went above and beyond to help students grasp the topics. Also getting to present our final project to a panel of people working in the industry was a great experience! Would reccomend!
