About This Course

This course will teach you the key language concepts and programming techniques you need so that you can concentrate on the subjects covered in Cloudera's developer courses without also having to learn a complex programming language and a new programming paradigm on the fly.

Course Length

This module includes 2.5 hours of video content. The hands-on exercises for this free course  require  your own environment. They may take up to 3 hours.

If you have a paid subscription you should enroll in Just Enough Python which includes an environment.

Audience and Prerequisites

This course is intended for students who need to become familiar with Python before progressing to one of the Cloudera developer classes. Prior knowledge of Hadoop is not required. Since this course is intended for developers who do not yet have the prerequisite skills writing code in Python, basic programming experience in at least one commonly-used programming language (ideally Java, but Ruby, Perl, Scala, C, C++, PHP, or Javascript will suffice) is assumed.

This course does not teach Big Data concepts, nor does it cover how to use Cloudera software. Instead, it is meant as a precursor for one of our developer-focused training courses, which provide those skills.


Through videos and hands-on exercises, participants will learn the basics of using Python, including:

  • Getting set up to work with Python
  • Running Python scripts
  • Working with variables
  • Controlling program flow
  • Using functions and modules
  • Working with data structures
  • Reading and writing files
  • Installing and using Python libraries


By completing/passing this course, you will attain the certificate Cloudera OnDemand Completion Certificate
