Python Development Training - Building Web Applications and APIs

Python Development Training - Building Web Applications and APIs

Python is a general-purpose programming platform. With python you can build desktop apps(also called GUI apps), web apps, web services(also called API - Application Programming Interface), CLI(Command Line Interface) apps and more. Python is also popular in AI(artificial intelligence), analytics and IoT(Internet of Things). Python development skill is a globally competitive advantage.

A number of multi-billion dollars companies are powered with python. Some of the companies using python heavily in their technology stack include Google, Youtube, Spotify, Instagram, Yahoo, Reddit and a lot more.

This course is specifically designed for people with absolutely no experience in python or general programming; we get started from scratch and build up gradually into mastery. We will build a real-world application as we progress through the course and deploy it to a production environment, so you can understand how to take a product/project from idea to production.
