RDP160 - Python Programming I & II


Duration: 5 days
Programming I

In this course, application developers learn how to design, develop, and deploy applications that seamlessly integrate components from the Google Cloud ecosystem. Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, participants learn how to use GCP services and pre-trained machine learning APIs to build secure, scalable, and intelligent cloud-native applications.

Programming II

Python continues to be a popular programming language, perhaps owing to its ability to get a lot of work done in few lines of code, and its versatility. Python is useful for developing custom software tools, applications, web services, and cloud applications. In this course, you'll build upon your basic Python skills, learning more advanced topics such as object-oriented programming patterns, development of graphical user interfaces, data management, threading, unit testing, and creating and installing packages and executable applications.


Programming I

• Set up Python and develop a simple application.
• Declare and perform operations on simple data types, including strings, numbers, and dates.
• Declare and perform operations on data structures, including lists, ranges, tuples, dictionaries, and • Write conditional statements and loops.• Define and use functions, classes, and modules.
• Manage files and directories through code.
• Deal with exceptions.

Programming II

• Create object-oriented Python applications.
• Design and create a GUI.
• Store data in a database from Python applications.
• Communicate using client/server network protocols.
• Manage multiple processes with threading.
• Implement unit testing.
• Package an application for distribution.
