Python is ubiquitous in modern desktop, server, and cloud computing environments. The ability to identify when to use Python, along with a working knowledge of how to write and run a Python script, are beneficial skills in secure coding. In this course, you'll explore the essential elements of Python scripting and the standard scenarios in which this language is preferable. First, you'll identify different Python scripts based on their features. Next, you'll learn how to work with variables, containers including lists, dictionaries, and tuples, conditionals, loops, and functions in a Python script. You'll learn how to carry out module imports and file reading and writing using a PowerShell script. Finally, you'll learn how to use a Python script to make a web request.
