Michael makes it very easy to follow along in the beginning of the courses. Everyone learns differently, but one of the ways I learn best is to follow along by typing the code as he does in the video, helping me commit it to memory.
I am learning tons using Python Jumpstart by Building 10 Apps.
Let me say that your courses are tremendous and I am a huge fan. I had tried a few different online learning platforms (edx, datacamp), so when I found your Python Jumpstart, I decided to finally give a paid course a try. Your courses strike an excellent balance between hand-holding and DIY, and they suit my learning style perfectly. [...] I'm a lifetime customer. Thank you for the great content, I appreciate the work you're doing.
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
