How it Works?
What I liked the most was real life projects.
Rmotr helped me go from stuggling to learn the basics on my own,- to understanding the basics of Python, and preparing me for a wounderful future of Python programming. I truly mean it when I say that taking this class has changed my life. I feel ready to get into the deeper more complex things Python has to offer, and their whole team helped me to get here.
About 6 weeks ago, I was on this page perusing the reviews for the Rmotr course and wondering:
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.
I highly recommend the Advanced Python Programming class from rmotr for anyone looking to take their programming to the next level.
I took this course two months ago and was quite impressed with it. I had entry level experience in programming and python and was interested in transitioning into a career involving python. This course helped me to finally get into more advanced concepts with material that is very practical for real world use in the workplace. In my opinion, doing projects is the best way to learn a language and there were plenty of them (challenging too!). The instructors did a great job answering questions and making the learning process casual and comfortable. This course does require a lot of hours and you need to be ready for that, but for me it was definitely a solid time investment. At the end of the class, you are able to create a real world demo project with a group that you present to other python developers so you really get the full experience.
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.
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.
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.
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!
While this course's time committment is fairly significant, several aspects of it, combined into the whole, make it unbeatable. The price point, the scope of the material, and the dedication of the individuals running the course make it stand out above other comparable online classes.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
I can't say enough about how helpful this course was for me. It was extremely efficient in its teaching, and I have learned so much in only 4 weeks. However, you do need to be ready to put in the work for this course, as it is very content-heavy. A key part of this course is learning through doing, and the projects selected in this course are fantastic at getting you to really solidify your understanding of key concepts while completing your project. Lectures are only a fraction of the course, and the majority of learning will be focused on readings the student is expected to complete each week, and the projects. I think this way is a much more efficient way of teaching, since students can decide how they want to approach the material, and spend different amounts of time on concepts based on how much they know, and ask mentors if there are any difficulties. Also I believe that listening to lectures about coding is not as helpful as actually coding. The reason this course is able to cover so much material, and is so efficient in its teaching is actually because the course chooses this method of teaching and has a great mentor support system. On top of that, their amazing support system of mentors makes it so you can always ask for help if you get stuck, and they will give you a little nudge in the right direction, or clarify any misunderstandings. Mentors will even go out of their way to check up on you every now and then to see how you're doing. Everyone is very friendly, and encouraging. Definitely a great environment to be learning in!
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 really like this course. The classes were fine, but the projects are what really made it for me. There was almost always a mentor around, we even got someone available during european times, just for our one european group.
