Python By Example [Video]

More Information
  • Fundamentals of Python Programming
  • Getting familiar with Python data structures
  • Developing your professional coding skills 
  • Programming in Python using a modular approach
  • Developing apps using object-oriented Python programming
  • Successfully and safely use Multiple Inheritance with Python 3
  • Build powerful Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs)
  • Write your own utility tools in Python

This video course explores Python basics, data structures, and algorithms. We'll build a die rolling simulator to see how to use Python dictionaries, loops, functions, and control statements.

Then, we will see how we can develop dictionaries that contain other dictionaries to build complex data structures.

Next we will use a modular approach to build a game that consists of a deck of playing cards. We will use object-oriented (OOP) Python classes to do so. We will display the playing cards both in a textual form, which we create, as well as via image files. This will lead to our displaying card images in a graphical form using Python's built-in Tkinter package.

In the next part, we will use multiple inheritance with OOP classes. While the Java and C# programming languages are limited to only single inheritance, Python classes can inherit from multiple classes. You will learn how to use multiple inheritance with Python.

You will also build Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs). We will use Python's built-in Tkinter package and delve more deeply into GUI programming.

By the end of this video tutorial, you will have built some useful utilities using Python. Python is very strong at searching directory folders, replacing words within modules, and much more. You will find these utilities useful in your everyday work as a developer.
