The essential Roadmap to learn python in 2020

Getting a roadmap to learn python in 2020 has always been one of the questions most beginners who want to learn and land a career as a python developer ask. First thing first;

WHAT IS PYTHON?

Python is an interpreted, high-level, general-purpose programming language. Created by Guido van Rossum and first released in 1991. Python is absolutely one of the most wanted programming languages out there, it became popular due to its simple syntax and its great versatility. It is highly useful with great applications in Automation, Web design, Data Science (Analysis), Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, Embedded Application, Browser automation, etc.

Pay Attention: What can you do with the Python Programming Language

When I first started out to learn python, I was faced with a similar issue as which steps should I follow to learn python not until I got an advice from one of my mentors who is a python developer. But not every beginner will get this same opportunity or advice like I get mine. Thus accounting for the creation of this article. At the end of this article, you will be able to start your own python journey at once as you will get to see a suitable roadmap to aid you with learning python. Taking action on the following step will make your python journey to become easy for you.

RoadMap to Learn Python

  1. Pick your area of interest in python
  2. Learn the basic syntax
  3. Branch into your area of interest
  4. Do projects
  5. Find a community
  • Pick your area of interest in python

Picking your area of interest in python is the first to do. You should find what you want to use your python for when you finish learning it. As for me, when I first started with learning python, I really didn’t have any area of interest as I just wanted to be a programmer but it really dealt a great blow to my progress as I wasn’t after any goal. What I could have achieved in a month, I ended up spending a month and halve. But you can do just better, pick your area of interest. Do you want to use python to create web applications or automate some tasks or you want to analyze some data? Python has many great uses which will surely attract your attention. You should see our post on the many uses of python here.

  • Learn the basic of python

Learning the basics is next right after picking your area of interest in python. You should learn the basics of python programming language like

Variable, strings and numbers.

If-else statement.

List and Tuples.

Dictionary.

User input.

While-loop and for-loop.

Functions.

And lastly Class.

While you can still learn about some other things in python, those basics are good to go for you. In one of the programming communities I am, it was said that learning how to code for two hours a day in the span of five days a week for over a period of three months should make you a good programmer. You can use this technique for learning the basics.

  •  Branch into your area of interest.

Since you earlier picked your area of interest in python. When you chose what motivated you to learn python in the first step. You should now branch into that area of interest of yours. Python has literarily many great uses which are sure will capture your interest. Like using python for web development with the Python Django and flask framework. You can view our article on the many uses of python. For those who would love to become data scientists, you should learn visualization tools like matplotlib or seaborn.

  • Do awesome projects.

Doing awesome and cool stuff with python will literarily sharpen your skill as a python developer. You should do stuff which brings about solutions to problems you figured out yourself or probably popular problems which are yet unsolved but you can solve as a developer. You can find many cool projects to work on websites like HackerRank, Project Euler. Especially if you are a data scientist, you will appreciate the usefulness of Kaggle as it offers up to 20000+ data sets to work on and also provides competitions to work on and you will definitely win a huge prize if you emerge the winner.

Lastly,

  • Find a community

If you observed very well from the start you should know I’ve laid emphasis on being in programming communities. These communities have helped me a lot as I have been taught a lot and also being able to ask many questions on problems I am facing. You should find a community about a python programming or any other community about programming in general. These communities will help you in a great way you would never imagine. If you follow these Roadmap to learn python in 2020, it will greatly help you also.

In conclusion, as you’ve now gotten your roadmap to learn python in 2020 I hope you would start your journey as a developer of python programming language.

    Very helpful. Actually began learning the basics three weeks ago, learnt list, syntaxerror, strings, retrieving elements in a list and so on. I encounter difficulties at some points and i get discouraged, especially when i try and try, but the output is an error.
