Python Programming with Red Hat (AD141)


Python is a popular programming language used by system administrators, data scientists, and developers to create web applications, custom Red Hat Ansible Automation modules, perform statistical analysis, and train AI/ML models. This course introduces the Python language and teaches fundamental concepts like control flow, loops, data structures, functions, file I/O, regular expressions, parsing JSON, and debugging. This course is based on Python 3 and RHEL 9.0.

How to debug Python scripts using the Python debugger (pdb)
Use Python data structures like dictionaries, sets, tuples and lists to handle compound data
Learn Object-oriented programming in Python and Exception Handling
How to read and write files in Python and parse JSON data
Use powerful regular expressions in Python to manipulate text
How to effectively structure large Python programs using modules and namespaces
How to use third-party libraries using the pip CLI tool.
