Python for Finance and Data Science
Learn the skills to land your first web development, computer science, or Python developer job with my one-of-a-kind online Python course.
So, you want to become a Python developer? It will be one of the best choices you'll ever make. Before I tell you why, though, let me tell you a little bit about my story.
I taught myself how to code when I was 22. To be honest, it was a brutal journey—late nights, an overwhelming amount of frustration, and way too much coffee.
The problem? I didn't have a roadmap. Instead, I wasted so much time trying to figure out the best place to start. I feel like I watched endless tutorials and still got nowhere.
I wanted to create a solution to help people focus on the most important aspects of coding; I just wasn't quite sure how to do it. That's why I created Python for Finance and Data Science—an online course that's specifically designed to give anyone (even beginners!) the key tools to land their first software development job.

What is Python?
Before we go any further, let's go over the basics.
Python is a flexible, fast, and surprisingly simple programming language that's freely available and used by companies all over the globe. It's one of the most common (and therefore valuable) programming languages.
While Python is known for its succinct code, clear syntax, and cross-platform compatibility, this popular programming language offers so much more than that—especially for those who are interested in taking their programming skills to the next level.
The Average Python Programmer Salary in the US in 2020
According to Indeed, the average Python programmer rakes in an estimated $120,365 per year; the top three best-paid states for Python programmers included California, New York, and Washington D.C.
That's a nice chunk of change... but why are salaries so high?
According to a survey published by StackOverflow, Python was one of the most in-demand technologies of 2018 and 2019. I assume the same is true for 2020, too!
This means that Python developers are highly-paid because there is a large shortage.
You can help fix that...
Python Career Opportunities

If you're feeling a bit uneasy, don't worry. This isn't the only Python course I offer! In fact, I offer free online courses, too. If jumping into Python for Finance and Data Science isn't the best starting point for you, check out my introductory course: Python Fundamentals.
This awesome course gives anxious Python learners the skills they need to grasp basic concepts and gain an introductory knowledge of Python. (It's the perfect course for beginners!)
If you're new to the Python programming language, I definitely recommend looking into Python Fundamentals. Soaking up knowledge is the best way to get on the fast track (AKA the right track) to a new career, right? By the final week, you'll have a good idea about how Python knowledge can positively impact your professional trajectory.
Still not convinced? Check out what some of my previous students had to say.
"I was laid off from my job in retail due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nick's course was the best thing for me to quickly level up my Python skills set and find a new (and much better paying) job writing Python for a financial institution."
"This was a great course. I've worked in finance my entire life but I knew nothing about different data types or computer programming until I signed up for Nick's course. I've now automated away some of the most mundane parts of my job, which has allowed me to focus on what really matters at work. In fact, I would say that a recent promotion was largely due to Nick's Python for Finance and Data Science course!"
