Learners' reviews

Small and nice course that describes most of the stuff one will need if one wants to publish a package on PyPI.
Very compact and useful course. Awesome!
Excellent course. Required prior knowledge of the Linux commands, and the desire to dig themselves. If something does not work, competent teachers will help you.
