What will you learn?
Course 1 – Crash Course on Python
In this course learners will understand the benefits of programming in IT roles; be able to write simple programs using Python; figure out how the building blocks of programming fit together; and combine all of this knowledge to solve a complex programming problem.
Course 2 – Using Python to Interact with the Operating System
By the end of this course, learners will be able to manipulate files and processes on their computer’s operating system. They’ll also have learned about regular expressions — a very powerful tool for processing text files — and they’ll get practice using the Linux command line on a virtual machine.
Course 3 – Introduction to Git and GitHub
In this course, learners will learn how to keep track of the different versions of their code and configuration files using a popular version control system (VCS) called Git. They’ll also go through how to setup an account with a service called GitHub so that they can create their very own remote repositories to store their code and configuration.
Course 4 – Troubleshooting and Debugging Techniques
This course is designed to provide the tools to quickly identify and solve real-world problems that learners might come across in their IT role. They’ll look at a bunch of different strategies and approaches for tackling the most common pitfalls of their code and IT infrastructure. They’ll learn strategies for approaching almost any technical problem and then see how those apply to solving different real-world scenarios.
Course 5 – Configuration Management and the Cloud
During this course, learners will understand how to automate the process for deploying new computers, keeping those machines updated, managing large-scale changes, and a lot more. Learners will also learn how to manage both physical machines running in their offices and virtual machines running in the Cloud.
Course 6 – Automating Real-World Tasks with Python
In the final course, learners will tackle real-world scenarios in Qwiklabs that will challenge them to use multiple skills at once. They’ll take a closer look at how to use external Python modules to extend their code’s capabilities, and spend some time learning how to use documentation to learn a new module.
