About the Program

Python is one of the most versatile and useful programming languages. From web development and data analytics to AI and machine learning, its real-world applications are virtually limitless. For example:

  • Instagram uses Python to scale its service to over 1B users
  • Industrial Light & Magic uses Python to create CGI and special effects in hundreds of films including Star Wars
  • Spotify and Netflix use Python to power data analytics so they can provide good recommendations and suggestions

This 5-week class, intended for those with little or no programming experience, teaches the fundamentals of computer programming in Python. You will learn core programming concepts such as variables, functions, conditionals and loops. Throughout your learning, you’ll be supported by your peers, an experienced instructor and mentors who are software developers. You’ll build and present several projects and have a portfolio to showcase your skills. By the end of the course, you’ll have the skills and a community to succeed in college-level computer science.


The class is completely free of charge. To be admitted to the class, you must:

  • Be 16-28 years old
  • Currently live in Africa
