This course will go beyond everyday Python to the techniques needed by experienced programmers and by library and framework developers.

Over time, Python has exploded in popularity, from being an obscure scripting language to becoming one of the most popular, and widely used languages in the world. In this course, Advanced Python, you’ll learn advanced topics, a knowledge of which will set you apart from the greater number of Python developers. First, you’ll explore how to gain fine-grained control over attribute access. Next, you’ll discover how to intercept class-object construction. Finally, you’ll learn the subtle, but powerful, controls Python gives you over class relationships. By the end of this course, you’ll know enough Python to understand the advanced techniques used to implement sophisticated frameworks and much more.
