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.

How it Works?
What I liked the most was real life projects.
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 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.
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 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 was the first time I participated in a remote programming course. Without any doubts, it worthed the time and money that I spent here.
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.
This was an excellent bootcamp and the reasons are the following:
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 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.
About 6 weeks ago, I was on this page perusing the reviews for the Rmotr course and wondering:
This is an excellent python course. It teachs you not only Python syntax but gives you a deep understanding of how Python works and OOP concepts in general that can be applied to other languages you may learn in the future. The coding sessions vary from simple in the begining to some fun little projects towards the end. Make sure you have enough time to dedicate to the course. The reading materials take a few hours a week outside of class to finish and the coding sessions in my experiance averaged 3 ~ 6 hours to complete each project. Overall I found the course fun and very informative and a great value for the cost.
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.
RMOTR's advanced python programming course is aboslutely worth the time and money. It's very time conusming, so I suggest those with other committments to seriously make time for this course because you only get what you put into it.
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 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.
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.
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!
Rmotr.com is a fantastic programming class/bootcamp. I'm no stranger to online learning - CodeAcademy, Coursera, e-books - I've tried it all. One criticism of online learning is the isolation one can feel as they plow through a 'stack' of pre-made content, whether that's a set of chapters in a book or a queue of pre-recorded videos. It's easy to become disconnected. Santiago and Martin are doing a tremendous job bridging structured content with collaboration based learning - creating a virtual learning environment that's both effective and fun for students. Rmotr.com builds upon students' knowledge of basic concepts in Python programming by focusing on building data-intensive projects and following good industry habits like TDD. A student will utilize OOP principles and advanced syntax features as they get their hands dirty with API development and basic web programming. Perhaps the most important highlight is the emphasis on group programming. Using a variety of web-based tools, students must learn to effectively communicate ideas, collaborate in shared workspaces and manage contributions linked to shared codebases through version control in order to succeed. Not coincidentally, these are the kinds of soft skills aspiring engineers must have if they wish to succeed in the "real world" of development, and so students start practicing from the very start. For me this was the most challenging but also the most rewarding aspect of Rmotr.com. I'm still friends with some of my classmates, and we continue working on projects today! This is more of an intermediate course, so make sure you have a grasp of fundamentals before signing-up. Things move quick, and expect to get your hands dirty early. You will learn a lot - you've been warned!
