Course Overview


Python has often been thought of as clean scripting language or a simple language to glue “real” applications together. This view is completely out of sync with the real possibilities of the Python language. This course will show you the true power of the language and the ecosystem. You will see that entire high-performance application stacks can be built in Python.
