Python Basics: Modules and Packages

Philipp Acsany

As you gain experience writing code, you’ll eventually work on projects that are so large that keeping all the code in a single file becomes cumbersome.

Instead of writing a single file, you can put related code into separate files called modules. You can put individual modules together like building blocks to create a larger application.

In this video course, you’ll learn how to:

  • Create your own modules
  • Use modules in another file through the import statement
  • Organize several modules into a package

This video course is part of the Python Basics series, which accompanies Python Basics: A Practical Introduction to Python 3. You can also check out the other Python Basics courses.

Note that you’ll be using IDLE to interact with Python throughout this course.
