What you will learn

  1. Learn Intermediate Python

    Estimated 2 months to complete

    Python is a general-purpose coding language with applications in web development, data science, machine learning, fintech and more. The Intermediate Python Nanodegree program equips you to leverage the capabilities of Python and streamline the functionality of applications that perform complex tasks, such as classifying files, data mining a webpage, etc. By the end of the program, you’ll have a portfolio that demonstrates your ability to apply practicioner-level Python skills on the job.

    Prerequisite knowledge

    Basic familiarity with programming in Python.

    1. Advanced Python Topics

      Begin by establishing a foundation in Python's methods to describe data, then dig deeper into functions and functional design, and create strategies for solving problems. You'll investigate the ins-and-outs of objects and object-based design, obtaining order from the interconnected ideas captured within class objects and instance objects. Finally, you'll have an opportunity to fuse Python with external files, culminating in the creation of complete codebases that can crunch numbers or protect the planet from peril.

    2. Large Codebases with Libraries

      Learn how you can write, structure, and extend your code to be able to support developing large systems at scale. Understand how you can leverage open source libraries to quickly add advanced functionality to your code and how you can package your code into libraries of your own. Apply Object Oriented Programming to ensure that your code remains modular, clear, and understandable. Honing these skills are the foundations for building codebases that are maintainable and efficient as they grow to tens of thousands of lines.
