Intermediate Python

This course utilizes the power and flexibility of the Python language to apply practical programming strategies such as the functional paradigm, modularity, parallelism, concurrency, metaprogramming, reactive programming, microservices, and design patterns.

Students will learn when and how to apply their knowledge and understanding to achieve optimal solutions to a variety of software problems. Prior knowledge of the Python language is required for this course. To prepare for this course, students should take Intro to Programming Python and Python Programming Fundamentals or its equivalent.

Key topics:

  • Modularity
  • Functional Programming
  • Metaprogramming
  • Unit Testing
  • Parallelism and Concurrency
  • Reactive Programming
  • Microservices
  • Design Patterns

Practical experience:

  • Organize code elements into logically related and lucidly defined packages, modules, and components
  • Develop metaprogramming software features
  • Assemble unit tests
  • Employ concurrency
  • Recognize opportunities for reactive programming approaches
  • Identify applications that can benefit from a microservices-oriented design
  • Select and implement design patterns within appropriate contexts
