Python is quickly becoming the most widely-used programming language by computer and data scientists today. This course is divided into two distinct sections: coding fundamentals and data science. Students will first develop skills in programming using the python language. Next, they'll explore data science and learn to input, analyze, and graph data using Pandas, Matplotlib, and Sci-Kit learn.
Python is easy to learn and there is no prerequisite math or coding knowledge necessary, making this an excellent course for beginners. Coding and data science are useful skills for anyone interested in finance, journalism/digital media, marketing, and communications.
Upon completion of this course, you’ll receive an official certificate testifying to your mastery of the curriculum. We’ll send you a link where you can download your certificate, share it online with your friends, post it to your professional network on LinkedIn, and view all your earned certificates. Congratulations on your achievement!
Became proficient in Java programming and computer science topics and knew nothing before. Would recommend!

As one of our smaller courses, tuition for this course is due in full before the start date. The best way to save on this course is to take it as part of a certificate program.
There are no extra fees or taxes for our courses. The price you see on this page is the maximum you’ll pay us.
However, if you plan to take the course live online, you may need to obtain required software. We’ll help you get set up with a free trial of paid software prior to the class. Most of our coding classes utilize freely-available open-source software. For most of our design and motion graphics courses, we will help you get set up with a free trial of Adobe Creative Cloud. If you attend the course in-person, we will have a computer already set up for you with all of the required software for no additional cost.
We don’t currently offer discounts as we do our best to affordably prices our courses.
Students must be comfortable using a computer. No other prior knowledge is required.
This course does not qualify for payments plans or student financing. See our Payment Plan FAQ to find related programs that qualify.
You may attend this training virtually (online) at the scheduled time the course is offered (New York, Eastern Time).
Python is a popular, back-end coding language. Both easy-to-learn and easy-to-use, it’s considered the top coding language in the world. Python is used to build software programs, web applications, online tools, and digital games. Programmers can also use Python to customize popular computer software programs, such as Salesforce.
In 1991, creator Guido Van Rossum designed Python for general purpose programming. It’s most similar to the programming languages C, Java, and Ruby. Python is managed by the Python Software Foundation, and its most recent update was Python 3 in December 2017.
The first half of this course is focused on the fundamentals of Python. Students will learn technical skills, including writing programs in python as well as computation and algorithmic thinking. Students will also learn how to program in pairs and will develop an understanding of coding team dynamics. By the end of part one, students will gain a strong foundation of the universal principles that are applicable to countless coding languages and programming contexts.
The second half of the course is centered upon data science using Python. Data science is a combination of mathematics, statistics, and computer science, and is comprised of three main functions: collecting, analyzing, and visualizing data. In this course, students will learn how to use Python and it's extensive libraries to accomplish all three with precision and ease.
Easy to Learn: Python's coding style is considerably intuitive, most notably because of its limited need for lexical syntax and English-like keywords. Unlike Java, Python code does not require punctuation after every line of code. As a result, students are able to master Python quickly, since they can focus on the concepts and paradigms rather than focusing on the syntax.
Used by Many Companies: Python is both well-suited for beginners and marvelously powerful. It is currently being used by many of the world’s top organizations and companies, such as NASA, Amazon, Google, Netflix, Facebook, and Apple. Along with its power, Python's efficiency is outstanding. With only 100 lines of code, Python can achieve at least 500 lines-worth of Java or C++ code.
Extensive Libraries: Along with Python comes a wide variety of libraries, packages, and frameworks, that continue to extend Python's versatility. In fact, libraries like Pandas, NumPy, and Matplotlib are what enable us to use Python for data science. Similarly, the frameworks Django and Flask enable programmers to write Python code for web development.
Community: A language is only as strong and as useful as the number of people who are coding in it. Python has recently surpassed 35 million downloads per year, with an estimated 5 million programmers worldwide using Python as their preferred language. This record-breaking momentum is a testament to Python's impressive strength and speed. Consequently, there is an ever-growing network of proficient Python developers, which makes everything from debugging on Stack Overflow to finding a job in a new city easier and more accessible.
Convenient & Easy Location: NextGen's classes take place at 2 University Plaza Drive in Hackensack, NJ. We're right off of Route 4, central to Bergen County. Our students and families benefit from a large screen TV/display, individual desks, free parking, and free coffee & tea!
Network Effect: NextGen attracts top-notch, highly motivated students who are eager to learn programming. We have a community of talented, hard-working students and alumni, including students from top high schools in NJ such as Dwight Englewood, Frisch School, Bergen Academies, Northern Valley Regional High School, and more. Our alumni are currently attending esteemed colleges and universities, such as NYU Stern, Wharton, Northwestern, Duke, and Michigan, to name a few!
Our python course is designed for high school students, but college students are welcomed as well! This course serves as an excellent introduction to the world of computer science and to the fundamentals of programming. Anyone who is interested in business, technology, entrepreneurship, journalism, and countless other jobs would benefit from knowing Python code. Students don't even need to know with absolute certainty what type of career they'd like to pursue, since the language can be used for so many different things!
This course has no math or coding pre-requisites, but students must be comfortable with basic computer skills and have a desire to learn at an advanced level.
