Episode 102: Making Your Notebook Interactive and Using Python's Assert
The Real Python Podcast
Mar 18, 2022 47m
Would you like to build visualizations that allow your audience to play with data? How do you effectively use Python’s assert statement during development? This week on the show, Christopher Trudeau is here, and he’s brought another batch of PyCoder’s Weekly articles and projects.
We talk about an article that shows how to build interactive visualizations with pandas, seaborn, and ipywidgets. These widgets allow you to add sliders, buttons, and dropdown menus to your Jupyter Notebooks.
Christopher shares the Real Python article “Python’s assert: Debug and Test Your Code Like a Pro”. It covers how to use
assert statements to document, debug, and test code while in development.
We cover several other articles and projects from the Python community, including a news roundup, code review guidelines for data science teams, a project to manage your to-do lists using Python and Django, a Python 4 dream list, a static site generator based on Django, and a book of practical Python projects.
Course Spotlight: Building a Neural Network & Making Predictions With Python AI
In this step-by-step course, you’ll build a neural network from scratch as an introduction to the world of artificial intelligence (AI) in Python. You’ll learn how to train your neural network and make predictions based on a given dataset.
