Build Python code Like a Pro for the cloud

From online Instructor to published author

Hi, I’m Rune.

I have turned my passion for programming and teaching into several successful online courses and have an engaging social following.

In this book you will learn how to craft Python production code and keep it healthy in the Cloud.

  • It will teach you how to create microservices with FastAPI (A popular Python library).
  • It will teach you logging and metrics best practices and how to monitor the health of your microservice.
  • How to build Docker images and setup services like MySQL fast and easy.

It will teach you all you need to know as a modern day Python developer, from debugging and GitHub basics to building advanced leading and lacking indicators shown in Grafana.

Over 10 Years of Professional coding experience

With a PhD degree in Computer Science from Aarhus University of Denmark, Rune has the background to combine computer theory with real world best practices.

In this book Rune shares with you how you can get the skills needed as a Python programmer. The skills you learn at high level educations in Computer Science, do not cover how to craft production code.

This book will teach you all you need to know.

What will you get?

190+ pages

190+ pages of content with explanations of concepts and supporting code.

Code in repository

You can clone all the code easy and run and try it yourself to get the most out of your learning experience.

Logging and metric practices

Learn how metrics monitor the health of your running microservice in the Cloud and how logs help you.

Learn Docker practices

Run Docker containers locally to develop Cloud ready code.

Git and GitHub basics

Get started with Git and GitHub to clone code and learn coding practices in big teams.

Professional testing

Test your code with type checking, unit testing, and test various Python versions automatically.

Whether you have a master degree in Computer Science or you are self taught programmer, you need the skills in this book. If you master them you will set yourself apart from other junior applicants in the industry.

Running the code in the Cloud gives some challenges. It has shown beneficial to have the software running in smaller services (often called Microservices), which makes them easier to monitor and to efficiently scale them up and down on demand. This book will teach you all that.

This book will not teach you how to program in Python. It will keep things as simple as possible and focus on teaching you the frameworks, tools, and how Python production code is monitored, maintained, and kept healthy in the Cloud computing ecosystem.

There might be a few things that surprises you.

  • Production code is often quite simple.
  • Finding bugs in a distributed system of microservices in the Cloud takes practice.
  • Programming is only one aspect of being a professional developer.

The good news is.

  • You don’t need to be expert to any of these tools and frameworks that are used.

You only need to understand why we use them and how to use them.

This will all be covered in this book.

Rune's book fills a critical, but often overlooked space in the technical books market by covering the important gap that often exists between "beginner learning basic syntax" and "expert learning a very specialized thing." With his book, you will learn to use Python and a few well-chosen tools and frameworks in an organized fashion to solve problems professionally.

Rune is a gifted teacher and I believe it's his personal learning challenges coupled with his passion to teach others that have developed him into the amazing teacher that he is today. Rune's book is a great introductory book for readers looking to develop hands-on knowledge about Python development. The books content ranges from deploying REST APIs to understanding the value of logging to learning valuable developer tools like Docker. The book is a great first step into the development world.
