About this video

In this course, you'll learn the Python 3 and the PHP programming languages from absolute beginner to advanced in no time at all!

This course is aimed at absolute beginners; you don't need any coding experience at all!

We'll start by downloading and installing Python and the Sublime Text Editor—both for free. This will give you all the tools you need to start writing and running Python code.

For PHP, we'll use a free online development environment so that we can learn web development concepts. Then, we'll delve into very basic computer science concepts, such as:

• String manipulation

• Printing to the screen

• Simple math

• Variables

• Data types (lists, tuples, dictionaries, and more)

• Assignment operators

• Comparison operators

After that, we'll move on to more intermediate topics such as:

• While Loops

• For Loops

• Conditional If/Else Statements

• Fizzbuzz

Finally, we'll finish up with more advanced topics such as:

• Modules

• Functions

• Classes

You'll learn all these features for both Python and PHP. You'll start with Python, and then move over to PHP in the second half of the course. Python and PHP are two of the greatest programming languages, and learning them has never been this easy!
