Great intermediate/advanced program
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 ...

How it Works?
Jason is a great mentor! He's your money guy and he should be at the forefront of all your efforts.
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.
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.
The Advanced Python course is a ~4 week long course where you're pushed to learn a lot of different stuff from decorators, working with Flask to advanced OOP in Python. There is a lot of material for you to work with be it reading material that you otherwise wouldn't come across easily all the way to Python talks/lectures that are more obscure.
What I really like was was working on real life projects during Coding Sessions. Mentors always available to help
RMOTR provides a well structured blend of individual and group learning. A typical week consists of 1 pure instruction/overview session, 3 group project sessions, and individual learning comprised of readings and exercises. At all times either an instructor or mentor is available to provide one-on-one assistance... that alone justifies taking their courses. Moreso, they emphasize real-world applicability over rote memorization or follow-the-leader. Python may be the tool, but the focus is on programming irrespective of the language used. All projects are guided by test driven development and must comply to multiple standards of Python, further reflecting a real use approach.
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!
I found this course on reddit and applied, thinking that I was still pretty new to programming. I had been teaching myself Python for a while, but definitely felt pretty stuck on the intermediate side of things. I applied to Rmotr, got accepted, and took the course. It was one of the best decisions I made. (Full disclosure: I now work with the company as a TA)
I loved how willing everyone was to help each other and the sense of humor/light mood from the lectures and mentors. I liked the curriculum layout and design. I liked the tools I received and the chapter breakouts. I felt stretched, but not in an overwhelming way as I did with previous python tools I was using. I also like the fact I have access to the student center after the class to catch up with concepts I need repetition on.
The RMOTR team is up front about the course requirements: it's not for beginners, and it is intensive. I admittedly took this a bit too lightly and was quickly overwhelmed. I spent literal nights and weekends reading and coding to get through this course... I starved a little. My boyfriend left me. No just kidding but it was super intense, and I was in bed at 2AM reading through my course material and spending 12 hour straight Saturdays on project assignments.
Be warned, it takes a lot of self commitment. Courses are like a part-time bootcamp. You will work hard, you will learn a lot, and you'll be proud at the end. I totally recommend Rmotr courses. Teachers (that are more like Mentors) are very friendly and helpful. Also, the community is great. Even after the course is finished, you'll still have access to those people that can help you in your own projects. DO IT!
I was skeptical about paying for a course on Advanced Python, but this course was a steal for everything I got out of it. From the very first session, this course taught all the arcane, advanced Python techniques I've been wanting to master. I thought to myself, the first class alone was worth the price of admission. But then, continuing on with real-life inspired labs and lots of help from the instructors and a half-dozen mentors, this class was truly a gem.
Whatever course organized by Rmotr.com it is not just a course. For me, it has been almost a 'life experience': nice people, great mentors, exemplary organization. Coding is a challenge, and Rmotr.com gave me the tools to go one (almost two) step(s) further.
I like the format of one class a week, lots of in-depth reading and basic assignments on Learn, then group coding exercises twice a week. I found the assignments to be incredibly helpful in actually teaching me how to use things from the classes and Learn. I also felt like I could reach out at any time for help from any of the instructors, mentors, and classmates.
I highly recommend the Advanced Python Programming class from rmotr for anyone looking to take their programming to the next level.
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.
The team behind Rmotr have built an excellent program that puts an emphasis on actual programming over classroom topics. We did 12 projects, each one focusing/requiring a specific element of Python being studied.
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 course has a nice diversity of individual and group work with the an ever present staff to answer any questions. So whether it is with peers you are working with or the teachers, you always have someone helping you.
