Python programming language: Now you can take NSA's free course for beginners
NSA releases Python course after receiving a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for its training materials.

Software engineer Chris Swenson filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the NSA for access to its Python training materials and received a lightly redacted 400-page printout of the agency's COMP 3321 Python training course.

You could always use Microsoft's free offering if you are awry of the NSA offer.

Microsoft: We want you to learn Python programming language for free

Microsoft's new free video course helps aspiring programmers learn Python... and then build AI apps on Azure.

The course focuses on Python version 3.x but Microsoft says the lessons should still be valuable to users on Python 2.x.

It has published a page on GitHub containing additional resources, including slides and code samples to help students become better at Python.

The Python for Beginners series is presented by Christopher Harrison, a senior program manager at Microsoft, and Susan Ibach, a business development manager from Microsoft's AI Gaming unit.
