Welcome back or nice to see you for the first time!
Roberts Greibers here with another experience-based post about Python requests.
I’ve been working professionally as a Python developer for well over 7 years, I’ll share more details about my story later in the post.. (just scroll down the page to find out more about me).
But before we talk about how qualified I am to write posts about Python requests, I’ll just give you all the answers you’ve been Googling for. 🚀
WARNING: You’re about to see the most important Python requests library use cases with clearly defined examples.
This is the BIGGEST breakthrough you’ll ever achieve as a Python developer.
Learning and implementing this way of calling API with a Python request is a major achievement in your career that you’ll use on a daily basis for years to come.
In this post, you’re going to explore:
- How to install and use the most popular Python HTTP library (Python requests library)
- Why requests Python module is the recommended way for HTTPRequest in Python?
- How to use requests Python library in your project (LIVE Zoom call with a student)
- How I’ve used Python requests library for the past 3 years at my dev job.
🚨 I’ll explain in detail everything you should know about Python3 requests (why Python2 requests are NOT used anymore)
And I’ll show you how API calls in Python are done in a real project (from Django projects I’ve worked on)
The intention here is to give you a real Python HTTP request example you could use in your own projects.
Just a quick note before we start: At the end of the post I’ll share details about what helped my students to get hired as Python developers, read till the end and see if that helps you too!👇🏻Continue reading
