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!

How it Works?
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 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.
I just completed this course and feel totally satisfied! It was intense (worked over 40 hrs per week ) but worth the trouble for sure. I learned python and moreover all the basic programming consepts. In fact I learned in a month more than I would learn on my own in over a year.
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.
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've been learning to code on my own for a few years now. I've gone through many books and online courses ranging from free to expensive, and I've completed a lot of coding challenges and exercises. I got to a point where I felt like I had written so much code that I should be ready to build things that other people can use. However, nearly every time I tried to write something from scratch I would stare blankly at my empty text editor, not knowing where to start, how to design or structure a program, how to create a whole product starting just from an idea, or how to break down a large objective into smaller pieces. Sometimes I might make it work, but I would be frustrated and annoyed the whole time and it would take me ages to finally complete it. How could I feel like I had no idea what I was doing when I've written so much code and solved so many problems successfully?
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!
Getting through the beginning of learning to code is quite easy. There is so much information on the internet out there for beginners learning to code, give me 5 minutes and I'll find you 20 different guides on getting Python running, and how to use the terminal and an IDE.
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.
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.
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!
This is an excellent course. Working with other on collaborative group projects is a skill I'd never exercised before, and they introduced it right away. The materials are well set up, and lead right into the exercises.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you know python, but need some motivation in taking it to the next level, this course is for you. You will learn, the advanced concepts of python such as Functional Programming, Context Managers, Classes and Decorators, Web Development using Flask and not only that, you will learn when you should be using what.
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.
Pretty much exactly what I was looking and hoping for. The course provides an excellent mix of reading references, live instruction, challenging projects, and similarly-minded students. There is a TON of reading to work through; one might not be able to absorb everything in a single pass nor within the time frame from week to week, but every bit is worthwhile (and helpful in the long run).
