201. Time tools
A very first Python course
If you have never written a line of code before, but would like to ease into Python, this course is for you.
I really like building things, so that's how this course is set up. In it we build some fun time-related tools together -- clocks, alarms, stopwatches -- and in the process we get to learn some important pieces of the Python language. We talk about every single line of code. Every command, every variable, every concept that goes into making it do what it does.
This course is under construction for now, so you can sign up at an early access price of $6. In a few weeks when it's done, that price will change to $9 USD. The first section is free, so you can give the approach a test drive and make sure it's for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
I love solving puzzles and building things. Machine learning lets me do both. I got started by studying robotics and human rehabilitation at MIT (MS '99, PhD '02), moved on to machine vision and machine learning at Sandia National Laboratories, then to predictive modeling of agriculture DuPont Pioneer, and cloud data science at Microsoft. At Facebook I worked to get internet and electrical power to those in the world who don't have it, using deep learning and satellite imagery and to do a better job identifying topics reliably in unstructured text. Now at iRobot I work to help robots get better and better at doing their jobs. In my spare time I like to rock climb, write robot learning algorithms, and go on walks with my wife and our dog, Reign of Terror.
