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.
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
A big THANK YOU for your podcast and training content. Your Jumpstart By Building 10 Apps feels so relevant and covers topics that are so applicable to everyday life that it has been easy to stay focused and enjoy the training. It feels like the learning/retention is just a by-product that comes naturally when you designed it so well.
