Courses on Humble Bundle

Several of our courses are part of Level Up Your Python Bundle. Wanting to try one of our Python courses? Now is a great time to try it. Starts at just $1. Seriously!

On this episode, we dive into Python for lawyers and a special tool for conducting legal interviews. Imagine you have to collect details for 20,000 participants in a class-action lawsuit. docassemble, a sweet Python web app, can do it for you with easy.

Now, you may be thinking, I'm not a lawyer so this isn't for me. Hang on for a sec. docassemble is actually a general-purpose tool. If you've ever done anything with a site like survey monkey or Google forms, you could do something more advanced with docassemble.

Join me as I talk with Jonathan Pyle, creator and maintainer of docassemble.
