Core Python 3: Byte Oriented Programming
by Robert Smallshire and Austin Bingham
This course will teach you about the byte-oriented features of Python used when working with binary data.
What you'll learn
In this course, Core Python 3: Byte Oriented Programming,
you’ll learn to work with binary data in Python using its
byte-oriented facilities. First, you’ll explore bit- and byte-
oriented operations on integers. Next, you’ll discover the
core byte-sequence types. Finally, you’ll learn how to work
with binary data structures and use various Python tools to
do so efficiently. When you’re finished with this course,
you’ll have the skills and knowledge of byte-oriented
programming in Python needed to work with binary
structures, interact with low-level memory blocks, and
manipulate byte-oriented data.
