Course Description

Learners can explore how to use the Python Request package which has simplified the task of constructing HTTP requests in this 16-video lab course, which explores different types of HTTP requests, and examines several ways to handle responses to those requests. Begin by learning how to use the Python request package to make a GET request for data from a server. Then you will observe how to construct a POST request to submit data to a host, and how to send it to a URL. Continue by learning how to use a HEAD request to check the resource information before downloading it by using GET, and how to examine request and response headers. Next, learners will examine a PUT request which has the same effect whether one makes the request once or multiple times, and which is used to overwrite an existing resource. You will learn to use DELETE requests. Finally, you will learn to address responses to requests in both JSON formatted or images.
