A Python course by Apple could be the next step in the evolution of Apple’s App Store, as the company looks to build a library of courses to teach the coding language in its homes.
According to a report by The Wall Street Journal, Apple is looking to create a set of Python courses to serve as a tool to build its mobile apps and apps for iOS devices, and possibly as a standalone product for developers who want to teach their app on their own.
Apple already has some of the best-known and most popular Python courses in existence, including one called “Python for Engineers” from Coursera.
And the company has already invested in a number of Python-focused programming schools, including Udacity, Udacity Academy, and Udacity Python course, among others.
Apple’s Python course may be a step in that direction.
But the WSJ article notes that the course is not a complete app, but instead an interactive interactive project that includes a learning and learning with Python component.
The WSJ report suggests that the courses could be used for any number of purposes, from teaching a new language to learning about the industry and its challenges, as well as to provide an opportunity for students to collaborate with Apple’s engineering team to design the next version of its iOS operating system.
Apple is currently developing a version of iOS 7 that will include Python and other technologies, and will also be introducing the “next generation” of Siri, Apple’s voice assistant that is coming in the fall.
