What's this course about and how is it different?
This course explains how to improve your code with various static analysis tools. It gives you the tools for installing new packages or updating the Python version without messing it up. It shows you how to build popular types of Python projects like a CLI application or Python package. It even helps you configure the VS Code editor for the best experience when coding in Python!
What topics are covered
This course covers everything you need to know to develop, run, and deploy full web apps on top of FastAPI. Just some of the topics include:
- VS Code + Python: A current and growing Python code editor
- Manage Python and packages in the real world
- Create a Python project with cookiecutter templates
- Managing project dependencies with tools like pip, pip-tools, poetry, and more
- See what "good" Python code should look like
- Test your Python code with pytest
- Documenting your code with Sphinx
- Perform some automatic checks on your code with continuous integration
- How to build a CLI application that you can run in your terminal
- Create a Python module/library that can be published on PyPI
- Make a standalone executable application that you can send to someone without Python dependencies
- Deploying your application to a Platform as a Service tool called Heroku
- Create a simple Docker image and deploy it to one of the popular PaaS providers

Who is this course for?
This course is for everyone who knows Python's basics but still struggles with using it in everyday work. It's great for beginners, but even experienced programmers can learn something new. It doesn't matter if you are a Windows, Linux, or macOS user - the course points out the differences between the operating systems so that you can follow along. It's perfect for programmers, data scientists, machine teachers (is that how machine learning specialists are called?) - basically anyone who uses Python.

Who am I? Why should you take my course?
Hi, I'm Sebastian Witowski, and I'm a Python consultant, freelancer, and trainer. You might know me from one of my talks at various conferences.
I teach people how to write code in Python, but I also build projects for companies ranging from small startups to Fortune 500 businesses. While working on different projects, I've noticed a recurring pattern - they are either over-engineered or oversimplified. They involve too many "shiny new toys" and you end up spending way too much time just keeping them up to date and replacing the unsupported ones. Or they use outdated tools or no tools at all (bash scripts everywhere). None of these scenarios is good, so I created this course to show you how to build a Python project based on well-established tools and best practices.
