In this course, you will learn to incorporate further object-oriented design principles and techniques with the intention of rounding out your skill set. Techniques like recursion, composition, and delegation are explained and put into practice through the ever-present test-driven practical work.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Extend Python code functionality through inheritance, complex delegation, and recursive composition.
- Publish, subscribe, and optimize your code.
- Create advanced class decorators and generators in Python.
- Demonstrate knowledge of Python introspection.
- Apply multi-threading and multiprocessing to Python development.
- Manage arithmetic contexts and memory mapping.
- Demonstrate understanding of the Python community, conferences, and job market.
- Develop a multiprocessing solution to a significant data processing problem.
From beginning to end, you will learn by doing Python-based projects and submitting them for instructor feedback. These projects, as well as the final project, will add to your portfolio and will contribute to certificate completion. Courses are delivered using the Eclipse-based Ellipse learning IDE (Integrated Development Environment) and require only that you be online and able to use a browser. Besides a browser and Internet connection, all software is provided online by the O’Reilly School of Technology.
This course counts toward the Python Programming Certificate Series.
Prerequisites: Python 3: The Python Environment, or equivalent skills. This course is meant for the intermediate or advanced Python programmer.
