Mastering PyCharm course is awesome. I have been using the IDE for a little while but you've opened up a whole world of features I never knew existed.
Are you kidding? By the end of first Mongo Quickstart coding example I was checking out colorama which was hardly mentioned, if at all. Watching the short on getting the code from GitHub lecture, I heard the best summary of branches ever. Those are not even core to the course!
When I first learned how to interface Python with the multitude of web services and data sources on the internet, a whole new world of automation opened up for me.
Python is a fantastic language to connect different services and to process data from all kinds of sources. But trying to find good tutorials on how to work with these services and their variety of data formats had me smacking my head against the table... That is until I found "Consuming HTTP Services in Python".
What I love about Michael's course is that it covers the whole spectrum-from web scraping with BeautifulSoup to parsing JSON from well-structured RESTful APIs.
So whether you're dealing with plain binary data, JSON or XML encoded responses, or even SOAP services, the course always has your back.
"Consuming HTTP Services in Python" is organized well and easy to follow along. Michael's delivery as an instructor clear and to the point. The editing work is excellent. As a result I can highly recommend this course for anyone wanting to learn more about interfacing with data sources on the web using Python
