Development Environments and Package Management in Python 3

by Reindert-Jan Ekker

Just about every serious Python project depends on third-party libraries. In this course you will learn how to setup the environment for your project, install and manage third-party packages, and manage the requirements for your project.

What you'll learn

As your projects grow and become more complex, they will depend more and more on other python packages. Managing these dependencies can be challenging sometimes. In this course, Development Environments and Package Management in Python 3, you'll learn everything you need to manage your Python project dependencies. First, you’ll take a closer look at pip and the features it offers for various installation scenario’s and versioned dependencies. Next, you’ll dive into virtual environments and see how you can configure your project for different environments, solving common problems, and more. After that, you’ll go into two newer, powerful tools that aim to replace pip and venv: poetry and venv. At the end of this course, you’ll have all the necessary skills that a Python developer will need to manage the dependencies of their projects.
