Finally getting a chance to start working through Michael’s Python Jumpstart course. This is easily one of the best online courses I’ve taken. I can’t recommend it enough.
In these first 13 minutes I learned so many techniques and best practices.
Quite a few times I found myself cursing that it had taken me weeks to learn what Michael was demonstrating in meer minutes.
The beauty of the course however lies in the fact that you're not spoon fed everything. You're expected to have prior knowledge of concepts such as Python Classes, data structures and so on.
Consuming HTTP Services in Python is a great addition to the training courses from Talk Python and Michael Kennedy. You’ll come away with a thorough knowledge of the best way to get data from the internet using the requests module; you’ll use real world examples and APIs from Basecamp, Github and a custom API Michael built just from the course
One of the challenges of self-paced online learning is if you get stuck it can be hard to get help to get yourself unstuck.
That's why we offer live, online office hours. You drop in and join a group of fellow students to chat about your course progress and see solutions via screen sharing.
Just visit your account page and click the office hours tab to see the upcoming office hour schedule.
