What will I learn?

During the course, you will build as many as 10 different programming projects (computer programs) to sharpen your knowledge and include them in your CV. These projects give you an excellent basis for making your own programs and scripts.

In lesson 7 of the course you will create a very interesting Python program which can easily pick up the desired data from some web sites (using an API). This is very useful for the preparation of programs in the fields of finance and marketing or for whoever needs you have to find information online and then process it.
