Overview

Python is an interpreted programing language. You write a program as a text, run it and see the result. There are libraries for applications and games and a clear syntax.

We will teach you the programming base. Also, we will tell about frameworks. You will create a game, a web-application, and will learn how to work with an API. Also, you will get an opportunity to earn money on freelance platforms. You can use knowledge beyond developing. Python will help make working with MS Excel easier. You can write plugins for Adobe Photoshop. So think of Python being like a medical college: we will give you the basic education and you choose a specialization on your own. Videos are in English and practical lessons are in Ukrainian.

What will you get?
  • OOP
  • API
  • libraries
  • games
Required skills
  • English - Intermediate level

Why Python?

  • This language was used and in use now by: Google, Facebook, Yahoo, NASA, Red Hat, IBM, Instagram, Dropbox, Pinterest, Quora
  • A developer’s work time is expensive. With Python you will code faster
  • It’s possible to create a game or application prototype quickly and to see if the program works immediately on Python

Iaroslav Tonkovid

Python Teacher

I’m a developer at Beetroot. I love new tasks in my work and am constantly in a learning process. When teaching, I love to move quickly from theory to practice. When I have free time, I spend it with my friends and go travelling. My favourite country is the USA.

Students says:

In the Academy, they give you a powerful and dynamic background and different solutions. All of the tasks are based on real projects. When I was studying, I developed some websites. Now I’m working on my own study projects. I’ve met interesting people at the courses. And when I finished, I found my own team. Beetroot Academy gave me the insight for the next step.

Koba Oleksa, Poltava, Founder IT BRO

For many years I`ve been working for the police. So, this is my first experience with this type of education. I'm grateful for changes in my life. Now I’m a web-designer.

Trubnikova Kristina, Mariupol

It was difficult to start. I knew a little about programming. But everything in the courses was interesting. And now — I'm a developer.

Tiunov Alexander, Kramatorsk, Developer NKMZ

Academy is neither a university nor a school. Nobody forces you to learn here. You do everything by yourself when it's comfortable. I’ve got a portfolio — worked in 4 projects and implemented the functionalities for two of them from scratch. As a result, I’ve found a job thanks to Beetroot Academy/

Safronov Ruslan, Kramatorsk, Developer WebWorks

After graduation, I took part in design competitions. In Betlab I was among the three best juniors. In Cogniance I’ve become one of the five best creative juniors in the Design Challenge 2018 mobile app development competition.
