Python Network Programming

Introduction:

Network programming has always been a demanding task. With full-featured and well documented libraries all the way up the stack, Python makes network programming the enjoyable experience it should be.

Starting with a walkthrough of today’s major networking protocols, this Python Network Programming course will show you how to employ Python for network programming, how to request and retrieve web resources, and how to extract data in major formats over the Web. You’ll utilize Python for e-mailing using different protocols and you’ll interact with remote systems and IP and DNS networking.

Course Objectives:

  • Networking technologies
  • Python network programming
  • HTTP protocol
  • Email protocol
  • API
  • FTP and SFTP
  • IP and DNS
  • Python Socket Programming
  • Client Server Applications
