Join Barron Stone for an in-depth discussion in this video Building the Web, part of Code Clinic: Python.
- Hi, and welcome to Code Clinic.…My name is Barron Stone.…Code clinic is a monthly course…where a unique problem is introduced…to a collection of Lynda.com authors.…In response, each author will create a solution…using their programming language of choice.…You can learn several things from Code Clinic.…Such as different approaches to solving a problem,…the pros and cons of different languages,…and some tips and tricks…to incorporate into your own coding practices.…This month, we're working on a problem…common to anyone building a website or a report,…specifically merging live data with static templates.…
Data is only useful when we can effectively…communicate it to someone else.…And to do that, we need to format it…into some sort of meaningful visual representation.…Sometimes this takes the form of a printed report,…but most likely, it means publishing data to a webpage.…In this problem, we have a pre-formatted HTML webpage…and two data files in CSV format.…Our job is to write code that will insert the data files…
Barron introduce challenges and provides an overview of his solutions in Python. Challenges include topics such as statistical analysis, searching directories for images, and accessing peripheral devices.
Visit other courses in the series to see how to solve the exact same challenges in languages like C#, C++, Java, PHP, and Ruby.
