About this Program


Python is a great language for beginning programmers, but it also has the power and flexibility to run major websites like Pinterest and Dropbox. This versatility allows developers to use Python to create smaller scripts and applications for the web as well as to do back-end development on a larger scale.

In this three-course certificate program, you’ll gain a thorough understanding of the major Python libraries and practice standard programming styles and idioms. We’ll explore different aspects of network-based programming with Python, including web applications, and dig into larger systems development issues and advanced topics.
