TL;DR: This exhaustive online class covers the ins and outs of Python, a popular programming language, and it’s on sale right now for just $9.99.


The fact that programming classes are now required for many elementary and high school students is enough to make any coding-illiterate millennial feel… well, sort of inadequate. As if we didn’t have enough to stress about already — see: the bleak housing market, avocado recalls, the general collapse of modern society — the youths are apparently coming to take our jobs. 

Deep breaths, everyone.

As luck would have it, the PCMag Shop just decided to throw us all bone in the form of a deal on a Udemy coding course called the Complete Python Bootcamp. It’s a well-rounded education in Python 3, the most recent version of the popular programming language, and it’s currently on sale for $9.99. (Udemy’s website usually lists it for $11 or $12, so this offer is the best of its kind.)

The class is designed to take your Python expertise from “zero to hero,” whether you’re a complete novice or already know a thing or two about its syntax and features. Following a brief refresher on Python 2, instructor and professional data scientist Jose Portilla will teach you the basics of Python 3, building upon that knowledge across 24 hours of video content on topics such as Object Oriented Programming, decorators, timestamps, the Jupyter Notebook, and GUI development. (If that all sounds like gibberish to you, don’t worry — it’s all explained in plain English.) 

This course also features nearly 20 different coding exercises, which will have you creating your own Python applications and games towards the end of your education. By the time you’ve completed each and every assignment and lesson, you’ll have a set of seriously impressive Python skills you can use to leverage a cool new STEM job (or at least a decent pay raise). 

Valued at $194.99, you can sign up for the Complete Python Bootcamp for just $9.99 when you enroll through the PCMag Shop. (You’ll get access to the course via email within two hours; check your spam and trash folders if you don’t see it within that time frame.)
