The requests library is one of the most popular Python libraries, period. It's amazingly friendly and useful and makes working with RESTful APIs on the Internet a breeze. In this workshop, we'll look at how to use the library to make GET, POST, and other requests, how to process JSON data, and how to handle HTTP Basic and Digest auths.
Besides teaching Python at Treehouse, Kenneth Love is a husband & father. He created a few popular Python libraries, worked at most levels of the web stack, & was the Creative Director of a newspaper. He likes board games, whiskey, activism, & dry humor.
