Intermediate Python

So, you’ve started learning Python and have fallen in love with its simplicity and versatility? We don’t blame you, it’s a great language! This course will take your skills to the next level. You’ll learn how to: Build more complex programs that use Python 4 built-in collection data types to better manage computing resources Anticipate, reduce and manage errors in your program with the use of exceptions Create programs that interface with files to read and write information. This course follows on from our [LINK]Introduction to Python course. We recommend you’re familiar with the concepts covered there before you dive into this course.

What you'll learn

Dictionaries
Use dictionaries to establish relationships between data and store key-value pairs.
Sets
Implement sets in your code to handle and reduce duplication of information.
Lambda Functions
Use lambda functions to create simple functions in a quick way with 1 single line of code.
Recursive Functions
Write programs with recursive functions to break down tasks down and make your code look clean and elegant.
Object-Oriented Programming
Implement the principles of Object-Oriented Programming to organise the design of your software around data.
Classes and Objects
Create classes as templates to create different programming objects.
