In Detail

For Python developers who want to connect their apps with external APIs, Learn Python Requests teaches you all you need to know to use the Requests library in Python. This course will teach you the basics of requests on the web and how to use the Requests library to work with external APIs. By learning how to use the Requests library, you'll know everything you need to know to integrate APIs into your Python apps.

Why Requests? It's not always feasible to build all the functionality you want into your apps off your own bat; using third-party APIs enables you to implement things such as sending text messages, integrating calendars, and accepting payments.

Once you enroll, you'll get access to a couple of hours of content that you can work through at your own pace. Code for all the videos is included, which makes it much easier for you to follow along. Once you purchase the course, feel free to protect your investment and by downloading all the course videos and code into your personal library. You'll start by learning the basics of web requests on the web. Next you'll learn how to use the important parts of the Requests library. And, since the best way to learn is by example, we show you how to connect to three APIs: GitHub, Twilio, and REST Countries.

The skills you learn in this course will help you enhance your apps. By the end of the course, you should understand the fundamentals of sending requests in Python. With this knowledge, you'll be able to integrate APIs from the services you need the most. This course covers using Python Requests 2.0. Python 3.4+ is required, but no advanced features are used so you may be able to use an older version of Python.
