Intro to Python

Learn the basics of Python Programming

For newcomers and beginners, Python is incredibly easy to learn and use. In fact, it’s one of the most accessible programming languages available. Part of the reason is the simplified syntax with an emphasis on natural language. But it’s also because you can write Python code and execute it much faster. What C++ writes in 10 lines python does in 2!
Whatever the case, it’s a great language for beginners, so it’s where a lot of young developers are getting their start!
