Python is the programming language that I always talk about. Not just me but people all around the world are loving this power packed language.
According to Tiobe’s Index Python could easily surpass Java & C language in coming 3-4 years. It is currently on the list of most popular programming languages at number 3. Popularity of Python grew at much faster rate after the acceptance of its use in Machine Learning and AI by developers.
Looking at some other indices Python is already the most popular Programming language. Even some of the biggest organizations have accepted it as their core development language. I recently wrote an article on the list of some popular apps built over Python which includes Google, Uber, Instagram and more.
This thing makes it clear that if you are willing to move into development then Python is the language for you. Being one of the easiest language to know and learn about its the choice of most of the beginner programmers.
In this article i will be sharing some free Python courses, tutorials and certifications. They will help you in getting a basic overview on how Python programming works. Some of these courses also include project based teaching which will help you in building some Python projects with step by step guidance.
Let’s get started with this amazing list of free courses and guides for learning Python. And as i always suggest, you can bookmark this article for using it later.
