Build a Personal Budget Report with Python Collections and Iterables

What you'll learn

In this project we're going to create different budget reports for our spending data using Python collections, iterables, and iterators.

Setup
10m
  • Set up your local environment for this project. We'll walk you through everything you need to know, including how to install and configure your environment to be able to complete all of the tasks
Count Expenses by Category
30m
  • In this module we will read in our spending data and display the categories with the most purchases in a graph.
Create the BudgetList class to Display Budget Overages
30m
  • To track expenses that are within budget, we're going to create a class that has one list for in-budget expenses and another list for overages. We'll also make an iterator for this class so that it can seamlessly iterate over both lists.
Finish Making BudgetList an Iterable
30m
  • In this module we'll finish creating the BudgetList class to add an iterator that is able to loop through both the expenses and overages list.
Categorizing expenses into separate sets
30m
  • In this module we're going to categorize our spending data into different sets. This will set everything up so that we can chart a comparison between different spending categories in the next module.
Timing Set Comprehension and Plotting Categories
30m
  • In this module, we will use the Python timeit module to time whether categorizing expenses was faster using a for loop or set comprehension. Then we will create a pie chart that compares the different spending categories.
