This lab is designed to introduce you to the basics of coding with Python.


This lab is designed to introduce you to coding with dates and times in Python, using the DateTime module.


In this hands-on lab, you will learn about the character classes and quantifiers elements of Regular Expressions, and use them to match patterns in text.


In this hands-on lab, you will work with regular expressions, learning how to use quantifiers, anchors, and capture groups to match patterns in text.


Regular expressions are a powerful tool for searching and manipulating text. In this hands-on lab you will learn how to use them effectively in real-world scenarios.


Put your knowledge of Regular Expressions to the test in this hands-on lab challenge.


This lab challenge provides you with partially written Python code in a web browser IDE that you must complete in order to pass all of the checks.


This course reviews and summarizes the Introduction to Python learning path.
