Python Programming Basics with REST is a basic-level hands-on Python training course that leads the student from the basics of “thinking” as a Software Developer into writing and running Python scripts to more advanced features such as Python REST client, operations, and using the extensive functionality of Python modules. Extra emphasis is placed on features unique to Python, such as tuples, array slices, and output formatting. This comprehensive, practical course provides an in-depth exploration of working with the programming language, not an academic overview of syntax and grammar. Students will immediately be able to use Python to complete tasks in the real world.
This skills-focused combines expert lecture, real-world demonstrations and group discussions with plenty of machine-based practical labs and exercises. Working in a hands-on learning environment led by our expert practitioner, attendees will learn to:
- Think as a Software Developer, including coding logic and structures
- Create working Python scripts following best practices
- Use python data types appropriately
- Read and write files with both text and binary data
- Get familiar with the standard library and its work-saving modules
- Use lesser known but powerful Python data types
- Create "real-world", professional Python REST client applications
- Work with dates, times, and calendars
- Know when to use collections such as lists, dictionaries, and sets
- Understand Pythonic features such as comprehensions and iterators
- Write robust code using exception handling
Need different skills or topics? If your team requires different topics or tools, additional skills or custom approach, this course may be further adjusted to accommodate. We offer additional python, web development, web services, data science, machine learning and other related topics that may be blended with this course for a track that best suits your needs.
This in a basic-level Python course geared for student who are new to Software Development and use Python in projects, or system administrators and web site administrators who want to use Python to support their server installations, as well as anyone else who wants to automate or simplify common tasks with the use of Python scripts. Basic familiarity with any programming or scripting language would be helpful, along with a working, user-level knowledge of Unix/Linux, Mac, or Windows.
Our Python tracks include a wide variety of follow-on courses and learning paths for leveraging Python for next-level web development, data science / machine learning, networking, task automation, security and other topics.
