I recently developed a new Python course, with a focus on beginners and practical examples. I call it Practical Python Programming for Everyone (ppp4e).

I’ve structured the course around Jupyter notebooks, which are interactive learning documents, containing my lecture notes, exercises, and homework assignments all in one place. I’m also releasing videorecordings of all eight classes.

All of this course material is available below, free of charge under a Creative Commons License.
