Python – Beyond the Basics builds directly on the foundations laid in our introductory Python course, Python Fundamentals. Python is a great dynamic language for web development, big data, science, and scripting. In this course we add breadth and depth to your Python skills, exploring the topics you'll need to create robust and readable applications of any size. On completing this course, you'll be familiar with the majority of Python techniques and constructs used in Python programs. Crucially, we'll also advise you on when – and when not – to use the different tools available in Python to best effect, to maximize the quality of your code, your productivity, and the joy inherent in coding in Python.
