free online Python class

Can anyone recommend a decent free online Python class?

I am overwhelmed when I do a Google search.

 

My goal is to learn Python and change my career path to using Python to query databases.

Why ask this in a NI forum? Why not on a Python forum?

 

Even if you insist on using an inappropriate forum, why not search the forum first?

I always thought nothing is off typic in Breakpoint.  Maybe OP has some reason to believe those that are familiar with LabVIEW, are also familiar with Python?

It's not off topic. To quote the BreakPoint page:

BreakPoint is the board for off-topic discussions! Feel free to post on any topic that you like while keeping the conversation civil. 

 

That doesn't mean it makes sense.

I second this recommendation. A couple years ago I evaluated several introductory Python courses (some paid, some free), and this free course by Mosh is definitely my favorite.

Because I am fairly certain there are some LabVIEW programmers who are having to learn Python to keep up or risk falling behind.

It seems Python has become the language of choice given that it is open-source and "free".

Great. I will give it a try.

I found I learn best when I am "tested" on what I have been taught.

Then you might want to try CodeWars. I enjoyed that you can check out solutions by others and read the discussion on best practices and clever solutions. That is something you cannot simply get from tutorials and courses. And due to the online compilers, you can easily take a try at other languages.
