Python programming for beginners: What can you do with Python?


Why should you learn Python? Python offers a stepping stone into the
world of programming. Even though Python programming language has been around for
25 years. It is still rising in popularity. Contemporary start up, some
big corporations such as Dropbox, Google and Instagram are using this language to
build their sites. One reason for its popularity lies in the simplicity of the
code which makes for easy comprehension for beginners. Python code is easy to
read, easy to learn and still a very powerful
language. It takes absolutely no skill to learn Python, whether you are a beginner
or a high-end professional developer. You can learn to code python. Python is an
open source language with a huge following of volunteers that are
constantly trying to improve it. This allows for the language to remain
fresh and current with the newest trends. Python has libraries for just about
everything. Use it to quickly build a lower
performance often less powerful prototype. Python is also great for
validating ideas for products for established companies and start-ups
alike. So, Python can be used in so many different projects. What can you do with
Python? Python can be used for multiple things. Python can easily be used for
small, large, online and offline projects. The best options for utilizing Python
are web development, simple scripting and data analysis. Here are a few examples of
what Python will let you do. Web development: you can use Python to create
web applications on many levels of complexity. There are many excellent
Python web frameworks including pyramid, Django and flask to name a few. Data
analysis: Python is the leading language of choice for many data scientists.
Python is growing in popularity within this field due to its excellent
libraries including NumPy and Pandas and its superb libraries for data
visualization like MatplotLib and Seaborn. Machine Learning: what if you
could predict customer satisfaction, analyze what factors will affect
household pricing or to predict stocks over the next few days based on previous
years data. There are many wonderful libraries implementing machine learning
algorithms such as Scikit-Learn, NLTK and TensorFlow. Computer
vision: you can do many interesting things such as face detection, color
detection while using OpenCV and Python. Rasberry Pi is a very tiny and
affordable computer which was developed for education and has gained enormous
popularity among hobbyists with do-it- yourself hardware and automation. You can even build a robot automates your home. Raspberry Pi can be used as the brain
for your robot in order to perform various actions and/or react to the
environment. The coding on a Raspberry Pi can be performed using Python. The
possibilities are endless. Game development: create a video game using
module PyGame. Basically you used Python to write the logic of the game. PyGame
applications can run on Android devices. Web scraping: if you need to grab data
from a website but the site does not happen API to expose data. You can use
Python to scraping data. Writing scripts: if you’re doing something manually and
want to automate repetitive stuff such as emails it’s not difficult to automate once you
know the basics of this language. Browser automation: perform some neat things such as opening a browser and posting a Facebook status. You can do it with
Selenium with Python. GUI development: build a GUI application desktop app
using Python modules Tkinter, PyQt to support it. Just a desire and willingness
to learn. There are many materials and courses available to teach you how to
code Python without any given skills. Simply taking a python course online is
probably all you’ll need to learn this language. So. How do you plan to use Python for
your projects?

  1. C++ = King of exploits
    Python = King of hackers like IP tracker, Or cmds
    C#, Lua, JS = King of games, But JS is for bots too (discord)

  2. I learned Java first and am interested in Python, and, to me, a weird learning curve was not ending params with a semi-colon. Does anyone else find themselves using syntax of other languages they know when they first start learning a new language?

  3. I will build your python applications in Fiverr!

  4. The no skills needed statement isn't quite accurate. Autodidactcism is the main and cheapest skill one should walk in with when it comes to becoming a programmer/coder in general…imo. Also, it's great and far more rewarding if you possess a *Unix/BSD (non-OSx) background.

  5. Hey Python community! Maybe you can help me. Everytime I open a saved .py file for editing with IDLE, it does not respond to the commands that I type in. Normally you see the '>>>' at the beginning of a line but when I open a saved file, however, it is not there and no commands seem to work. What do you recommend? (Python version 3.4.2)

  6. You can also use Python to program Arduino and other microcontrollers boards for Internet of Things applications

  7. Python is an utterly useless language that gives one absolutely no good reasons to learn it whatsoever, maybe besides grasping the basic core concepts of object oriented programming in a very beginner friendly manner. That's precisely the only good reason I can think of – everything else mentioned in the video has its alternatives that fulfill the need much better than Python has ever done. Web development is so much nicer using either Vaadin, Nodejs, Asp.net. Python GUI applications are a joke on every platform and so are all video games created using Python that cannot be compared to games crafted using C++/C# on legitimate game engines such as Unreal/Unity.

  9. Nice one, However if someones wants to learn python in Hindi , visit – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqr8fXsE6gc&list=PLrqwCI95Biv1JVyvUqSs8Mou4-owRjC4O .

  10. Thank you +Ecourse Review for your Video. Explained nicely about the video… Need more information on the begineer level… here i am sharing some stuff which i got it from some other resource hope it will be helpfull for everyone ( https://goo.gl/bi5SbJ )… Thank you

  11. That stepping stone sucks ass.
    Sctipt converted to windows executable with nothing but "Hello World" in it weighs 15mb and somewhere around 300 files.
    Not to mention, you cannot call functions before you define them.

  12. python is one of the most stupid languages; it uses weird naming convention line __name__ and looks a lot like c with all its str, len, dir and many other dumb abbreviations. it's extremely poorly designed.

  13. Been doing C++ for 3 years. Should I learn python next or go with like Java? Want to learn a high level language since C++ is not.

  14. Before i read the below comment, I was going to comment the same.No skill..any class doh can learn it in 5 minutes. I think not.Might be easier than other languages but still quite confusing for newbies I suggest

  15. I am really happy with your video because your video is very unique and powerful for new reader.https://bit.ly/2w9l0xK

  18. thanks for the really useful videos for my career
    Here is OURS site visit for : advanced aws interview question with answers

  19. Please put the basics things about python for beginners in Hindi…and when one student can do their project in python then what she wants to know when external ask about project..tell me the imp things about python

  20. Why I am getting this error while run on command? >>> python
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
    NameError: name 'python' is not defined

  21. Give me a break! It does take some skill to learn any programming language. Especially if you're over 40 years old and didn't grow up with computers. We had to learn Arduino for an Instrumentation program and a lot of us "older" guys were really struggling.

  22. I don't why people use Django, despite NodeJS is way easier, faster and dynamic for the backend?
    Do corporates even realize how much time and resource they waist by using python in their industrial material?
    I mean why use a language that is 20 to 40 times slower than fully optimized C++ code outside research at all?

  23. I'm taking up python for future job security in business analytics, ie. machine learning, predictive forecasting, modeling uncertainty and risk, data visualization. I fear my billing job will be automated in the near future.

  24. Sometimes I think that I made a terrible mistake to join Computer SCience. I mean I can't do the programming is so hard! and I'm stuck! Don't know what to do with my future 🙁 I need help! What should I do? i'm in 7th semester and still cannot make an application or web I fucked up with my life to join CS.
