Networking with Python: Socket Programming for Communication
Discover how you can create networked applications in Python by using sockets. Supported by Google.
Build your practical network application skills and understanding
On this course from the Raspberry Pi Foundation, you’ll learn how to create programs that communicate over the internet.
You’ll explore the principles that industry professionals use when programming for networks, and learn how sockets are used to abstract the complexities of the internet.
In the final week, you’ll design and create your own protocol for a networked quiz that you’ll program using Python. This final challenge will help you to consolidate and apply your learning from the course.
