The Complete Python Bootcamp: From Zero to Hero in Python
For more than a year straight, this Python bootcamp remains one of the most popular online courses for the community at Hackr.io. Our programmers like this course because of the breadth and depth of the coverage. Students start with the basics, then quickly expand to immediately-useful topics.
The course begins with an assumption that students have no understanding of Python and moves into much more advanced topics including web scraping, emails, and GUIs. Students also complete several projects with their own IDEs throughout the course. That's vital for anyone who wants to build a portfolio.
This popular Python course lists at $179.99, but we saw the price drop to $19.99 during the sale. Note that you may need to click the general sale link to see the discounted price.

Mastering OpenAI Python APIs: Unleash ChatGPT and GPT4
By definition, a course on OpenAI must be relatively new. The organization’s popular ChatGPT chatbot launched last year and exploded in popularity in 2023. So it makes sense for students to learn about the topic with a Udemy course.
What caught our eye? With only about 5,600 students enrolled, this is still one of the smallest courses we’ve evaluated. Our research shows an exceptionally high rating and robust coverage of the topic.
At the time of review, Udemy students gave this 4.8 out of 5 stars. The thing that makes this course unique is the promise that it will help you build a GPT-4 chatbot. That’s a real-world project that could help students win jobs.
This course lists at $19.99 and fell to $9.99 when we checked at the start of the sale. Note that you may need to click the general sale link to see the discounted price.

While this may be advanced for students asking what is data science, it offers specific real-world examples on how to use more advanced tools like OpenCV.
The course lists at $74.99, but we found it on sale for $9.99 at the start of the sale. Note that you may need to click the general sale link to see the discounted price.
