Python is an interpreted, high-level programming language designed for general-purpose programming. It has a design philosophy that emphasizes code readability, and a syntax that enables programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code, notably using significant whitespace. Python provides constructs that make it possible for clear programming on both small and large scales.
The programming language has a dynamic type system and automatic memory management. And it supports various programming paradigms, such as, functional and procedural, object-oriented, imperative, and has a large and comprehensive standard library at your disposal.
Many operating systems (OSs) have Python interpreters. CPython, which is the reference implementation of Python, is open source software and has a community-based development model, as do nearly all of its variant implementations.
In this course, you will learn how to code in Python in an easy, fun and interactive way. The trainer kicks of the course by first introducing the Python programming language to students, installation of Python, IDLE and Python Shell, before diving into the core concept of coding in Python.

Python is one of the most widely-used, high-level programming languages. Python also executes basic tasks with less code, making it a compact and economical language to learn. Python code is often five (5) to ten (10) times shorter than C++, and three (3) to five (5) times shorter than Java.
Python is not like some other programming languages take a lot of time to learn; it is simple and quick to write Python code. One could become reasonably proficient in programming in the language in less than two months.
This programming language supports multiple styles, such as functional programming, object-oriented or imperative programming. Python's memory management is done automatically and has many standard libraries available for the programmer. Learning to code in Python is easy and yet it is able to solve real world problems. The fundamentals of python language are easy to learn, understand and follow, due to its similarities with other languages like Java, Perl and C. Learning Python will open up many doors for you in the programming realm.
- Raspberry Pi and Python
Raspberry Pi is an affordable, credit card-sized microcomputer that is being used for a mind-blowing range of exciting do-it-yourself (DIY) projects like video game consoles, remote-controlled toys and robots. With Python as its programming language, the Raspberry Pi is being used even by young people to build radios, cameras, arcade machines and robots. With the increasing popularity of Raspberry Pi, there are numerous manuals, books and DIY projects you can find online.
It can be a satisfying experience to complete some of these DIY projects, and it has the potential to motivate you to push yourself further in coming up with innovative concepts and gadgets.
By utilizing advanced python programming, you can build some novel products or gadgets, which can make waves in the market.
- It Pays to Learn Python
Python is used by top global corporations, such as, IBM, Yahoo, Nokia, Google and Disney. Matter-of-factly, in 2013, among programming languages, Python enjoyed the largest year-on-year job demand growth of 19%.
Interestingly, in 2014, the demand for Python programmers increased by 8.7%, while the overall hiring demand for IT professionals dropped by 5%. Python developers enjoy a strongly-rising demand for their skills.
Based on a research study on software and relevant courses, Python, Ruby, Java, Swift and C++ developers make the most money with PHP developers tagging behind.
- For Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
It is well-known that Python is currently driving scientific programming, unlike before. For several years, researchers and academic scholars were using MATLAB for scientific research. But with the release of Python numerical computation engines like SciPy and Numpy, complex calculations could be done by a single “import” statement followed by a function call.
Python has gradually started to be the preferred language for computer science research. Given its flexibility, its speed, and the machine learning functionality, Python is expected to dominate the machine learning domain in the near future.
So, even if you have a little interest in scientific research, it is advisable that you learn Python, because it is going to be an absolutely vital part of your work.
- Preferred for Web Development
Web programming with Python provides lots of choices as the language has many frameworks, such as Django, for developing websites.
Django, Pylons, Zope2, TurboGears, web.py, Grok, web2py are among the web frameworks offered by Python. Django is the most popular framework preferred for Python web development. Django, written in Python, is the foundation of websites like The New York Times, BitBucket, Pinterest, The Guardian, and Instagram.
Coding an application that takes hours in PHP can be achieved in just a few minutes using Python. That's not all, the Python code runs a lot faster and is more stable. Then there is Flask, another Python web framework, but tiny and built for customizability. Once you start working with Django and Flask, you would never look back to other similar languages,.
While the majority of websites still run on PHP, many new web applications are being built using Python.If you’re doing any web application development, we at FlamyTech Computer School encourage you to try Python and Django/Flask. Take our word: you’ll be surely impressed.
Python is versatile; you can use it for small, large, online and offline projects. It is the only scripting language you’ll need to begin designing your own websites and applications.
- Ideal Especially for Startups
For start-ups, success doesn't happen overnight; it comes from a series of iterative tasks that enables them to find out what the potential customer wants. Build the minimum viable product or service, for example, the one having the smallest possible set of features that solves the customer’s problem. Let the customer see it.
Repeat the process until the customer is happy with the product or service. This process allows start-ups to iterate their way to success. Start with an idea, then refine the idea and product until you’ve achieved your target. Python is the ideal programming language that enable start-ups to achieve this. It makes it possible for you to code fast, creating complex applications with minimum lines of code that are five (5) times less than Java and ten (10) times less than C++ code.
Moving fast from idea to implementation is crucial in the start-up world, so if you are working with start-up companies or that's your target,we recommend that you learn Python. Python can be useful, either as part of the core product or as a supporting utility, whether a given product or service is web-based, mobile, or enterprise. The language can efficiently scale the most complex application and can be effectively managed by a small team.
