How to Learn Python? Lesson 1: How to Install Python?

This article is a part of a series that covers how to learn Python? This first article will cover the topic on how to install Python?

Python is a high-level, object-oriented programming language. Python is very much used in Rapid Application Development. The syntax of the Python programming language is easy to learn and emphasizes on readability and as a result, helps in reducing the cost of maintaining an existing program.

Python has inbuilt support for packages and modules which helps in two important aspects of designing any code:


  1. Reusability of code.
  2. Modularity of the program.
The interpreter required for Python and the standard library for the language is available for free on all major Python coding platforms and is free for all to use and redistribute.

Why do programmers love Python?

Frequently, developers go gaga for Python as a result of the expanded efficiency it gives. Since there is no gathering advance, the alter test-troubleshoot cycle is inconceivably quick. Troubleshooting Python programs are simple: a bug or awful information will never cause a division blame. Rather, when the mediator finds a mistake, it raises a special case. At the point when the program doesn't get the special case, the mediator prints a stack follow. A source level debugger permits investigation of the neighborhood and worldwide factors, assessment of discretionary articulations, setting breakpoints, venturing through the code a line at any given moment, et cetera. The debugger is composed in Python itself, vouching for Python's thoughtful power. Then again, frequently the speediest approach to troubleshoot a program is to add a couple of print articulations to the source: the quick alter test-investigate cycle makes this straightforward approach exceptionally compelling.


Why learning Python is important for any programmer?


While there are all the more capable languages (e.g. Lisp), speedier languages (e.g. C), more utilized languages (e.g. Java), and more odd languages (e.g. Haskell), Python gets a variety of things right, and ideal in a combination that no other language I am aware of has done as such far. 

It recognizes that you'll invest significantly more energy perusing code than composing it, and focuses on controlling designers to compose meaningful code. It's conceivable to compose obfuscated code in Python, yet the least demanding approach to composing the code (accepting you know Python) is quite often a way that is sensible pithy, and all the more significantly: code that clearly flags aim. In the event that you know Python, you can work with any Python with little exertion. Indeed, even libraries that include "magic" functionality can be composed in perfectly meaningful Python (compare this to understanding the execution of a system such as Spring in Java). 

Python additionally acknowledges that speed of advancement is vital. A meaningful and succinct code is a piece of this, as is access to effective constructs that stay away from the dreary reiteration of code. Practicality additionally ties into this - LoC might be an everything except pointless metric, yet it says something about how much code you need to scan, read and additionally comprehend to investigate issues or change practices. 

This speed of improvement, the straightforwardness with which a software engineer of different languages can pick up basic Python abilities, and the enormous standard library is critical to another region where Python excels - toolmaking. Any project of size will have undertakings to robotize, and computerizing them in Python is in my experience requests of size quicker than utilizing more standard languages - in fact, that was the means by which I began with Python, creating a device to mechanize configuring Sane Filter for a project where it before was such a chore that it was never run (and memory spills were not settled). I've since created tools to extract data from ticket frameworks and displaying them in a path helpful to the group, tools to check poms in a Maven project, Trac reconciliation, custom observing tools... what's more, a mess more. Those tools have rushed to actualize, spared a ton of time, and a few of them has later been patched and refreshed by individuals with no Python background - without breaking. 

That building custom tools are simple clues at another quality - assembling and keeping up custom programming is simple, period. This is the reason, while the very gigantic Django system may be the most popular Python web structure, there is likewise a large group of successful little and micro-structures. When working in an effective programming language with a wide cluster of standard and outsider libraries, you frequently don't have to accept the exchange offs that are necessary when utilizing any vast off-the-rack structure. This implies you can assemble/exactly/the product your customers need, instead of disclosing to them that "this is the way it's done, sad". To me, this is an immense difference. I feel embarrassed when I need to tell a customer that no, sad, this/appears to be/like a straightforward necessity, yet the system we utilize makes it inconceivable or restrictively costly to execute. At whatever point this happens, you have fizzled. Composing programming that fits into the customer's model instead of into a structure is imperative, and I most definitely feel that a ton of engineers today has dismissed that straightforward fact. A ton of software engineers now invests more energy being configurators of systems and makíng excuses for their shortcomings, as opposed to actual programming. 

At last, in case you're a supervisor lady/man or general chief, utilizing Python has the last advantage - Python software engineers keep running into less disappointment, which makes them more joyful, and much more productive!
