About the Course

This 3-day Python intermediate course extends the skills you have learned at the Beginner level. Highlights of this course include learning how to structure your code with packages; succinctly define functionality using lambda expressions; and quickly extend or modify existing functions by using decorators and closures. Students will also learn how to improve code by using properties instead of attributes and understanding the difference between static and class methods and how to override them. We will also go deeper into formatting strings and using different number types, such as complex numbers.

Who should do this course?

This course is ideal for those who know the basic principles of Python but would like to delve deeper. It is perfect for people who have just finished the Python beginner course or those who have been fixing or extending other peoples’ code and now want to write their own. This includes people who may have dabbled in Python but would like to take their Python skills to the next level.

This course will help you understand not just how to do things but why we do them that way. In short, this course will enable you to develop the skill required to be a professional well-rounded Python programmer.

Prerequisites

The course assumes you have completed the beginners' course or have equivalent knowledge of Python Programming. Students must know the fundamental object-oriented concepts and use Python to develop both modules and scripts. You will need to understand and be able to use the different datatypes in Python, create classes and functions, and work with collections, comprehensions, and generators. This course also assumes you are familiar with handling exceptions and testing and debugging your code.
