DEV330X Introduction to Python: Creating Scalable, Robust, Interactive Code
About this course
Ready to build on the experience you gained in the Introduction to Python: Absolute Beginner and Fundamentals courses? Continue to learn Python, step by step, as you create scalable, robust, and interactive code.
Explore the power of importing Python Libraries into your code. Create Python (.py) files, and work within the file system. Increase the power and precision of your statements through better understanding of objects, operators, and formatting. Plus, make code with robust error handling methods, package your Python files for running in other programs or from the terminal, and provide standard Docstring documentation.
When you finish the course, you’ll have code that will handle errors, you’ll have solid, standard documentation features, and you’ll be able to use more robust data structures. Start using your skills to solve problems and build code that lasts.
As with the previous introduction to Python programming courses, you will get lots of hands-on practice working with sample code in Jupyter Notebooks on Azure, which require only a browser and an Internet connection (and, in this course, use the Jupiter Terminal).
What you'll learn
- Using libraries, including math, os, datetime
- Creating precise and powerful statements
- Error handling, including try/except
- Tuple and dictionary data structures
- Python (.py) file configuration for reuse in code and in terminal
- Documenting code structure
