Below are the video training courses included in this Learning Path.
Intermediate Python Programming
Jessica McKellar2 hours 56 minutes
What do Scrabble cheaters, Shakespearean sonnets, Twitter, and the Astronomy Picture of the Day have to do with Python software programming? For software impresario Jessica McKellar, they’re playful tools for teaching intermediate-level Python programming techniques. During her time as an organizer of the Boston Python User Group (one of the world’s largest Python groups), she taught hundreds of Python wannabees to happily program like pros. She uses that experience to benefit the next generation of Pythonistas in this follow-up to her widely popular Introduction to Python video.

Many intermediate Python developers aren’t achieving their full potential with the language because of features and concepts they don’t know, or that they partly know but find confusing because their understanding isn’t quite right. In this course, you’ll take a leap forward as you learn exactly how names work, get a solid handle on namespaces, and dive into several powerful features in Python that are missing in other languages, such as generators and first-class objects.
Mastering Python – Networking and Security
Presented by Ric Messier4 hours 48 minutes
In this course you’ll learn how to use the Python libraries for network scripting and develop basic scripts with network functionality. Next, you’ll build on your networking skills with HTTP programming, security scripting, and forensic scripting. You’ll learn how to ensure that your network is hardened so that sensitive information can be passed securely. At the end of this course, you’ll be capable of debugging and security testing using Python, as well as writing Python scripts.
