Course Description


Python continues to be a popular programming language, perhaps owing to its ability to get a lot of work done in few lines of code, and its versatility. Python is useful for developing custom software tools, applications, web services, and cloud applications. In this course, you'll build upon your basic Python skills, learning more advanced topics such as object-oriented programming patterns, development of graphical user interfaces, data management, threading, unit testing, and creating and installing packages and executable applications.

Course Objectives:

In this course, you will expand your Python proficiencies.

You will:

  • Create object-oriented Python applications.
  • Design and create a GUI.
  • Store data in a database from Python applications.
  • Communicate using client/server network protocols.
  • Manage multiple processes with threading.
  • Implement unit testing.
  • Package an application for distribution.

Target Student:

This course is designed for existing Python programmers who have at least one year of Python experience and who want to expand their Python proficiencies.


To ensure your success in this course, you should have experience with object-oriented programming and Python 2.x or 3.x. You can obtain this level of skill and knowledge by taking the following Logical Operations course:

  • Python Programming: Introduction
