    It looks like this course is just going to guide you through the basics of programming. Once you understand the logic the code follows, you will still need to learn more on your own, but google should be able to help with code examples and stuff.

    Programming is very logical, and it just makes sense. Once you know how it works, you should have no problem expanding on that knowledge, even though you won't be learning exactly what you need for making bots.

    Without trying to lower your moral or something, Python is so easy that you don't have to get into any courses at all. The reason for that is its clean syntax. In addition to that, I found programming courses to general, and useless, since most of the time in programming you have to figure out things by yourself. Beter for you is to head to book sharing sites (pm for link) and get enough books to bootstrap yourself.
