    Automate Your Day: Beginner to Advanced Programming in Python

    When I am wrangling a spreadsheet or filling out a web form, I often suspect that a computer could do the same thing. If you have ever felt the same, this class is for you. The goal of this class is to make programming accessible and useful by giving you the tools to automate your routine, repetitive, boring tasks.

    In the class, we will cover the two main approaches to automation. First, we will learn how to use programmatic interfaces to manipulate websites and other software. This means bypassing browsers and other interfaces, and communicating with programs directly using code (i.e., we will learn about APIs). Once you can do that, you can replace minutes or hours of manual effort with a single command!

    Second, we will learn how to manipulate our mice and keyboards directly to address the cases where direct communication with a program is not possible.

    If you are absolutely new to programming, that's no problem! In addition to being one of the most versatile and widely-used programming languages in the world, Python is very approachable. In your first session, you'll be able to write a simple program to interact with a website--without ever touching your browser.

    You will need access to a desktop or laptop computer with a stable Internet connection.

    About Me

    Hi, I'm Cory! I like to write, learn about people, learn languages, play music, and practice martial arts. I've worked in software for nearly a decade and want to use that knowledge to help people liberate their time.

    As a teacher, I will meet you where you are. I want to understand your motivation for learning, and, from there, I will personalize our class experience for you.

    I believe that we learn most quickly by doing, so our classes will be built around projects. Our time together will involve dialog, explanation, and working in tandem. Then, individually, you will work on projects as best you are able, learning along the way. In general, learning takes place within a person; as a teacher, my job is to find out what concepts are unclear to you. Then, once we have made things clear again, you can continue to learn by doing.

    I look forward to meeting you!

    Education

    Private coding / programming lessons with python
    Python is one of the best, or the best, language to start learning to code. It is, also, one of the languages more used today. Particularly in the more avant-garde fields, machine learning, for example. This popularity makes python constantly evolve. Its tools and libraries are ample, free and very varied. I am an aeronautical engineer who likes to share what he can do. I profit by teaching and motivating people. I am used to working with people of different ages. I believe in segmentation, visualization of progress, objective results and practice. Beyond these general lines, there is no rule or magic method. Some things work with some students and not with others. Adapting to needs is really the goal of private lessons. So I will do my best to find what motivates and helps my student.

    Learn Arduino, STM32 programming using C language and ARM assembler, Z80, CubeIDE
    I am an associate professor in industrial engineering and electrical engineering, passionate about electronics and industrial IT, I have carried out several projects in the field of industrial automation ARDUINO, and the STM32 are free hardware microcontrollers. They are very useful for learning electronics and coding at the same time. They are great estimators because we can solve problems and watch the results physically. Thanks to the size of its community and the openness of its philosophy, information is widely accessible. ARDUINO, PICs and the STM32 allow us to undertake countless projects of all kinds. In a way, it's a little door through which you can easily access the world of makers. Among others. My main goal is to stimulate creativity and curiosity. In addition to allowing my student to acquire a level of competence that allows him to function on his own.

    Mastering IT for your daily needs
    Hello, You are an adult and you need the technology to take steps or take actions. But it seems difficult to see insurmountable on your own. Arm with your notebook, you would like us to explain you step by step and know how to reproduce in order to gain confidence and autonomy! That's good, I'm able to guide you and explain what the platforms / sites expect from you! For example, how to lighten a file so that it is accepted on official sites? What are the different file formats? What are the tips to save time or make your job easier? I have a European license for computer graphics (design using the computer) and the handling and use of the different software (in French and in English) does not scare me. I have been helping those around me for many years, I have also learned to create tutorials. The language barrier is not a barrier. I have patience, curiosity and I am a teacher. And above all, I will create real situations drawn from our learning in order to assess your progress, give feedback and anchor your new skills! Take a first lesson in order to get to know each other and understand your needs, whether they are one-off or part of a longer course. Hope to meet you ! Amandine

    Create fun games and interactive programs in Python (adults)
    Python is easier to learn and understand than other programming languages. Its instructions are simple and easily readable with a clean syntax which doesn't really involve complex coding. However simple and easy to learn, Python can be used to create the highly interactive programs. This course aims to engage learners with little or even no previous programming experience. The programme for beginners starts with an introduction to the basic fundamentals of Python (expressions, conditionals, and functions). Then, as the course progresses, learners will be able to combine Python commands and modules like Pygame, Matplotlib, Numpy and Tkinter to implement their ideas and develop skills like computational thinking, creativity and problem solving. The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners.

    Math, Physics, Programming and Computer Science (IB) tutoring
    I specialize in IB and AP curriculum but can, of course, tutor regular high school classes as well. I can help students catch up, keep up or get ahead of their curriculum in mathematics, physics, computer science or programming. I try to explain these matters in a meaningful way, to provide students with an understanding of the subjects, not just the ability to solve formulas and memorize.

    The basics of programming in Java and Python and C.
    Learning to program neatly and effectively can be difficult and time consuming without adequate explanations. That's why I offer programming learning courses for the following languages: -Python (Easy to take in hand) -Java (more intermediate level to start) -C (quite complicated without any knowledge in programming) The purpose of the various courses will be to help future programmers to take the programming tool into their own hands but also the appropriate programming techniques. At the end of these courses, the programmer will be able to create a program of the size that he wishes without any restriction except for his imagination. He will also be able to find the necessary information where it is needed on the web.
