Please note that this course requires basic python proficiency. At the minimum, you should be comfortable with:
basic python data types and format
basic python data structures such as list, dictionary, tuple etc.
how to create python functions
how to implement loops in python
installing and importing libraries
Basic python proficiency is mandatory because Interactive Broker API’s python client uses advanced OOP and asynchronous programming concepts. While, I have devoted an entire section explaining these concepts, students with no python knowledge will really struggle to follow along.
