This course expands on our Introduction to Python Programming course, our For Loops and Conditional Statements in Python course, and our Dictionaries, Frequency Tables, and Functions in Python. You’ll learn how to build functions that employ multiple return statements and return multiple variables, as well as installing and using Jupyter Notebook. You’ll complete the course by creating a portfolio project on Profitable App Profiles for the App Store and Google Play Markets.
Best of all, you’ll learn by doing — you’ll practice and get feedback directly in the browser. You’ll apply your skills to several guided projects involving realistic business scenarios to build your portfolio and prepare for your next interview.
- Writing functions with multiple inputs
- Using and installing Jupyter Notebook
