Imagine if a programming language can have application ranging from the movie you just watched to finding it’s place in the agency that scouts for water in Mars and even while you search all that you ever want on Internet!
No exaggeration, Python is a widely used general-purpose high-level programming language that is used by giant organizations like Google, Yahoo!, CERN, NASA to much smaller yet significant players like ILM (a visual effects company behind movies like Avatar, Toy Story, etc.), ITA (now a Google owned company that helps in airfare search and pricing system) and Dropbox (surely they are quite popular now!).
Now here is the good news – programmers often fall in love with Python since it allows them to express concepts in fewer lines of codes than other languages like C++ or Java. With an incredibly fast edit-test-debug cycle and no compilation step for programming, this software language is synonymous to ‘improved productivity’.
Python Software Foundation or PSF is an open-source community that is behind this incredible software that supports multiple programming paradigms and have consistently ranked among the top 10 most popular programming languages since 2003 (TIOBE Programming Community Index).
Python’s application domain ranges from web & Internet development, scientific & numeric computing, desktop GUIs or even education and support language for software developers. Many operating systems like Linux and OS X include Python as a standard component and as a scripting language it is used in artificial intelligence tasks and is successfully embedded in several software products.
Welcome to the world of Python by SpringPeople. Apart from the various open content available online like fundamental and advanced concept training on Python, we at SpringPeople have a basic course which covers the language itself, explains object-oriented as well as functional programming techniques, error handling, packaging, system and network programming, many of the Python extensions (libraries), as well as best practices while the advanced version is best for senior professionals with hands on Python experience. This 24 hour session will enable you to process text using regular expressions, leverage OS services, perform basic graphics programming, create modules, test and debug applications, take advantage of Python’s object-oriented features, interact with network services such as FTP and SMTP, query databases and process XML data when you finish.
Having said all this, other than the love for the language, Python can help you accelerate your career as well. Python developers are likely to be in-demand as larger scale web applications are created, reads Morgan McKinley’s 2015 salary guide, which highlights the language as one of the key add-ons candidates can profit from having.
