Learners can explore built-in Python modules that allow you to perform many common operations without having to write the associated code, in this 9-video course. These operations range from random number generation to frequently used math calculations. You will learn how to recognize the features available in popular Python libraries such as NumPy, random, and datetime. Also, you will take a look at the steps involved in packaging Python code into a tar archive for distribution to end users; use pip to install a module in your environment and import it into your Python applications, and learn how to install the virtualenv tool and use it to create a virtual environment for Python applications. In the final two tutorials in this course, you will discover how to activate and run Python scripts from within virtual environments, and then install different packages in different virtual environments and recognize how they are isolated from each other.

IN THIS COURSE

  • 2m 23s
    In this course, we explore built-in Python modules. Which allow us to perform a lot of common operations, without having to write the code for it. We then look into the steps involved in building our own custom module in order to package functions, properties, and classes for distribution to our end users. And finally, we cover the use of the virtualenv tool, in order to create independent virtual environments. FREE ACCESS
