The Practical Python Projects book demonstrates how to combine different libraries and frameworks to build amazing things.
When learning to program, most books, websites, and tutorials focus on teaching the intricacies of the language. They do not teach how to create and implement end-to-end projects for things like aggregating movie trailers, tracking sports teams, getting information about video games, and other real-world topics.
This often leaves a void in people's understanding of how to execute the very things that inspire them to get into coding. This book is my attempt to fix this problem. I will teach you everything you need to know to take your project from idea to execution and eventually deployment.
You will learn how to take basic Python knowledge and ship something useful!
What will we be making?
Glad you asked! There are 12 chapters in total and in each chapter, I will be guiding you from start to finish on how to implement an end-to-end project. I will show you how I take an idea and do the required research before writing any code. A few of the projects that we will be implementing in this book are:
? A Twilio bot that keeps you updated with the latest match scores from the FIFA World Cup
? A Facebook Messenger bot the shares latest memes, jokes, and shower-thoughts scraped from Reddit
? An automated invoice generator and deploying it using Flask
? Making automated cinema-preshow by ing and stitching together related movie trailers using moviepy
? Generating automated article summaries and overlaying them on top of images
? Understanding and decoding JPEG images using vanilla Python
? Creating a GUI application using PyQt for ing online videos
? Implementing a TUI email client that allows reading emails in the teal
