This course is designed to demonstrate an intermediate understanding of Python and increase your skills and techniques as a developer.

The course begins with an examination into advanced data types in Python and functional programming features. Then, we will discuss the specifics of testing Python programs with logging. After discussing Python libraries for advanced computation and data integration, we will  cover multithreaded programming with Python. We will end with developing network aware applications through socket programming and Uniform Resource Locators and creating functional web application using the Django Web development framework.

During this instructor-led, hands-on course, you will learn to:

  • Work with Python’s support for resource management and collection iteration
  •  Apply TDD concepts with Python using unit testing
  •  Create concurrent programs using Threads
  •  Build a simple client-server solution
  • Understand the basics of the Django Framework for web application development
