Skip to 0 minutes and 3 secondsLast week, we looked at how you could use some built in modules and functions to begin creating more powerful applications in Python. This week we'll look at ways in which you can use Python to its full extent by installing and utilising external Python libraries to perform some incredible tasks. We're also going to take a brief look at some other programming languages, and show that once you have mastered one text- based language, learning a new one becomes a much easier challenge.

Welcome to Week 4

Welcome to the last week of the course, and congratulations for how far you’ve come already!

Last week we looked at how you could use built-in modules and functions of Python to begin creating more powerful applications.

This week we’ll look at ways to unleash the power of Python by installing and using external libraries to perform some really cool tasks. We’re also going to take a quick look at some other programming languages and their strengths, because once you have mastered one text-based language, learning another one becomes much easier.
