Programming Essentials with Python: Cloud Technology and SaaS
Develop your knowledge of cloud infrastructure and cloud technologies
What’s powering the architecture of cloud computing, and how does it rely on Python programming?
Take a deep dive into the cloud and look at different types of cloud architecture and learn to articulate the benefits, challenges, and opportunities they offer.
You’ll also gain further insights into the most commonly used programming language – Python. You’ll master its primary functions, and examine its data structures and how to use them.
Discover how cloud computing works
Cloud computing has transformed how computer power – from networks to intelligence – is delivered, offering the opportunity for innovation, flexibility and economies of scale.
This course will teach you the fundamentals of the cloud and how it came to be. You’ll identify the major players within cloud computing, and gain a greater knowledge of its importance and impact upon business and the wider world.
Examine IaaS, Saas and other types of cloud architecture
Going further into cloud computing services, you’ll look at various deployment models and learn how to weigh them up against the risks and challenges they will face.
You’ll go in-depth on IaaS (Infrastructure as a service), Saas (software as a service) and FaaS (function as a service) infrastructure services, and analyse the benefits, issues and opportunities that cloud computing presents.
Master the basics of data structures and algorithms in Python
The final week of the course will shift focus to one of the most straightforward and most commonly used programming languages, Python.
As well as learning how to use its primary functions, you’ll also find out how to define and compare its four built-in data structures – list, tuple, dictionary and set.
- Cloud architecture
- IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, FaaS
- Python for programming - the basics
