Explore the Python 3 standard library. Learn how you can take advantage of the library's built-in modules to calculate statistics, format dates and times, get content from the Internet, and more.
- Sometimes we try to create these complex algorithms without realizing how much is already built into the program we're using. Python is known for being concise and elegant. And in this course, I'm going to show you how to make writing Python code a little easier. Hi, I'm Kathryn Hodge, and I'm a software engineer who's super passionate about computer science. In Python Standard Libraries, we'll dive into the built-in functions, math modules, input output modules, and even get information from the internet with the HTTP module. I'm really excited to share this with you, so let's get started.
- Working with logical and comparison operators
- Getting a list of numbers with the range() and list() functions
- Using mathematical functions such as round(), abs(), and pow()
- Calculating a given input's length
- Importing and using the math module
- Reading a user's command-line arguments
- Getting the current time
- Formatting dates and times with datetime
- Creating a timer
- Using urllib to get content from the Internet
- Using the JSON module to decode content
