This course is an introduction to features of the Python language which will help you structure your code once your needs move beyond a few Python modules. You'll learn where to start plus the patterns you should follow to grow your Python projects.
As your Python programs grow, or you contribute to existing, larger Python-based systems, you'll need some techniques to help you manage the inevitable growth of complexity. In this course, Core Python: Organizing Larger Programs, you’ll learn foundational knowledge to structure your Python programs to facilitate their growth and maintenance. First, you'll learn how to implement packages. Next, you'll discover namespace and executable packages. Finally, you'll explore a structure for your projects that support everything from code to tests to documentation. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of Python program organization needed to grow and nurture your Python projects. Topics:
- Course Overview
- Nesting Modules with Packages
- Implementing Packages
- Namespace and Executable Packages
- Recommended Package Layout
- Package Distribution
