Get started with a powerful programming language

26 May - 25 August 2022
Python is a simple yet powerful programming language that can help with a range of projects, from data science to cybersecurity and beyond.

Python is being adopted by developers worldwide. It's already a popular resource, and every day it is growing more useful.

Why is Python so popular? Here are just some of the reasons:

  • It is relatively easy to learn and use.
  • You can use it for any computing task you want--it's that powerful.
  • It's open-source and has millions of supportive developers.
  • It's portable--run it on any platform without adjustments.
When you are proficient at computing with Python, your job expands and your options increase.

You don't have to become a full-time developer to carry out projects in Python. It will come in handy whether you want to conduct data analysis, test software, use machine learning, or pursue another computing-related goal.
