Build 10 real working apps with Python


This Python Mega Course will help you learn to code by teaching you to build 10 real-world apps that each highlight a unique use of Python.

Job prospects for coders are still growing steadily—and with Python being one of the most popular coding languages out there today, it’s important for job seekers to demonstrate a widespread understanding of the language. That's why we recommend this course. It goes beyond the basics to give you real-world skills.

You’ll have access to 172 lectures and 21.5 hours of content designed to help you build web applications, database applications, web visualizations, and much more.

At the end of the course, you’ll have built 10 apps you can be proud of—and show off to potential employers. Some of the specific apps you’ll build include a webcam motion detector, a desktop application, and an interactive web-based financial chart.

For a limited time, we've dropped the price of the Python Mega Course to 78% off retail, selling for just $42.

Atmos' bigger, better new vape delivers a longer vape sesh


The Atmos R2 may be bigger than the brand's previously-released vapes, but we argue that in this case it's definitely a good thing.

A bigger heating chamber means more room for packing it full. And the bigger battery means longer, more fulfilling vape sessions. In fact, you can use the Atmos R2 for up to about 25 minutes without recharging.

It also now comes packing a reengineered anodized chamber, plus new ceramic heating disk tech: meaning you get an even smoother, cleaner pull every time you light up. And as far as using dry herbs vs. oils? You can take your pick, because the Atmos R2 works with both.

The reason this is an especially great deal is that it also includes some useful accessories for much less than the price of just the vaporizer itself. You'll get a packing tool, both the original anodized chamber with coil and the new advanced ceramic disc heating chamber, and more. 

We highly recommend the Atmos R2, and it’s currently on sale for 40% off retail.
