Best Way To Start Learning Python – A Complete Roadmap

Python is a programming language that lets you work more quickly and integrate your systems more effectively. You can learn to use Python and see almost immediate gains in productivity and lower maintenance costs. If you are a beginner or somewhere stuck in between the learning process, in this blog I will share with you a complete roadmap to stay in the game.


For a programmer reliable documentation is always a must. The presence of documentation helps keep track of all aspects of an application and it improves on the quality of a software product.

Python Docs are well written and detailed, it gives you deep knowledge about the syntax and the working of different things.

Choose an Editor

If you are a beginner and want to learn Python without doing the installation part then go to "" and start coding. I would personally prefer the Sublime Text Editor. Choose a Tutorial Sometimes it gets difficult to learn only from the Documentation and we need Video Tutorials to make things easier.

Choose a Tutorial

My Top Four Recommendations:

Do Basic Things First

Never skip the basics part.

I know you know the logic of swapping two numbers already.

But believe me, hands-on implementation in a different language will make you familiar with the syntax without learning it.

Never Stuck for Syntax

You're NOT supposed to memorize all the Syntax.

Just make programs, small projects and you will get eventually familiar with them without memorizing them.

Use Google or Stack Overflow

Do not shy to Google or looking at the previous lesson again if you are getting some problems.

It is totally OKAY :)

Make Projects

Try to implement the basic things you have learned in a practical way by making a simple project.

Even if you have learned only the If-else loop you can make a project like a quiz etc.

Below are some Python project ideas for beginners. These can help you develop your knowledge and challenge your abilities with the programming language:

  • Build a guessing game
  • Design a text-based adventure game
  • Create a simple Python calculator
  • Write a simple, interactive quiz
  • Build an alarm clock

Find your Interest

Python has a very vast implementation-

  • AI and machine learning
  • Data Science
  • Web Development
  • Game development
  • SEO
  • etc

Never get into a field just because everyone is doing that, try to find the best field for you and GIVE YOUR 100% in it.


Find like-minded people of your interest, interact with them and most importantly make Connections, collaborate and grow together.

As a conclusion, There are many reasons why you might want to start learning Python. It’s a future-proof and in-demand skill that’s required across all kinds of industries. If you’re wondering who uses Python, you’ll find that many of the biggest organizations in the world implement it in some form. NASA, Google, Netflix, Spotify, and countless more all use the language to help power their services.

Happy Learning!
