In this mini-course you will demonstrate what you’ve learned in the Python Basics* course and apply your Python skills to a real-world project for your final assignment. You will be introduced to unit testing and will develop the skills needed to create functions and unit tests, run the unit tests, and package the files in a standard Python Package.

Hands-on labs provide practical application of the project work you’ll be performing in the Peer-graded Final Assignment.

At the end of this project, you will have the skills to test your Python code, build and run unit tests, and package the Python application for distribution.

Who can take this course?

Unfortunately, learners from one or more of the following countries or regions will not be able to register for this course: Iran, Cuba and the Crimea region of Ukraine. While edX has sought licenses from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer our courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses we have received are not broad enough to allow us to offer this course in all locations. edX truly regrets that U.S. sanctions prevent us from offering all of our courses to everyone, no matter where they live.
