Learn Basic Python In 11 Days - Chapter One


Python an outstanding language developed by Guido Van Possum in February 1991.


Python is an interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. We can use Python for developing desktop GUI applications, games, websites, web and graphic design applications. Also, Python allows you to focus on the core functionality of the application by taking care of common programming tasks.

Advantages of Python

  • Open Source and Community development
    Python language is developed under an OSI-approved open source license, which makes it free to use and distribute, including for commercial purposes.
  • Easy to Learn
    Python is easy to learn as it has basic syntax and coding to read and write more programs.
  • Productivity and Speed
    Python is good for having enhanced process control capabilities and possesses strong and complex integration and its text processing capabilities, all of which contribute to its speed and productivity.
  • Multi Support Libraries
    Areas like internet protocols, web services tools, string operation, and operating system interfaces are provided in the large standard library of Python.
  • Portable Language
    Being a cross-platform language, it can run over different platforms such i.e. Windows, Linux/UNIX, Macintosh, smartphones, supercomputers, etc.
  • Interpreted language
    As it is an Interpreted language, so the codes are interpreted and executed line by line at a time. So it is easier and suitable for beginners to advanced users.

Disadvantages of Python

  • Somewhat Slower
    Python is a high-level language but still slower than languages like C, C++, etc. As it is first semi-compiled whereas other languages are fully-compiled. So its processing is slower compared to others.
  • Limited Libraries than others
    Python doesn’t provide many libraries like he other languages such as C, Perl as they provide much larger sets of libraries as compared to Python.
  • Runtime error
    Due to its dynamically typed language and more testing requirement, it possesses error in design and shows up with errors only at runtime.
  • Undefined Structure
    As it doesn't have defined structure syntax like other languages, so it is not easily convertible to other languages. As for the conversion, it requires the user to completely examine the code first.

Why we go for Python?

Being an open-source programming language, it is also one of the most versatile programming languages. developers use it extensively for application development and system development programming. If you have the right training and the right attitude to learn fast, Python has a lot to offer. Having a strong knowledge of Python programming and being confident about your strength areas is essential. It also gives you the additional preparedness required in your onboarding process. There are lot of opportunities in Python like,
  • Data Analyst Opportunities
  • Python Developer
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine Learning 
  • Networking
