Welcome to Learn Python by doing!

Tired of the same Python course teaching you data types and printing the same message in a for loop? It’s time to learn exciting things!

In this course, you will learn a lot of built in functionalities for you to become a better Python developer. You will also learn how to implement best practices and some unit testing. Some of the things that you will learn in this course are:

  • The zip function, the map function, the reduce function (with lots of exercises, obviously!)
  • Virtual environments, dependency management, deterministic builds, dependency resolution and more!
  • How to implement your own iterators and generators
  • How to sort things like a pro
  • Learn about closures (which is a concept that is not specific to Python)
  • Learn about decorators and some useful ones that come with Python
  • Sets and why are they cool (with fun exercises)
  • TDD and unit testing with Pytest

And more! Also, you will be asked to do some interesting exercises along the way, so you reinforce what you learn in this course.

Have fun and enjoy!
