Python is a fantastic programming language and I found that for me, it is the easiest language I have seen so far, well I do not have lots of knowledge on different languages, in fact I have had contact only with C++ and JS before, and I was told that JS is the most simply language for beginners, what I do not agree, I can surely say that Python is!
But what makes me say that? Simple answer, in my view Python has a simple syntax, with no complication and it is very direct. If you want to print something, just use print()! That is what I am talking about, simplicity.
The languages are classified in basically two fields: Natural and Formal . The Natural languages are the languages we speak, like English, German, Spanish (...), and the Formal are the languages we use to "talk" to machines, used to represent Math, Chemistry and so on. Formal languages tend to have a strict syntax and very specific. Python has an easy to understand syntax and it is very similar to our natural language, what makes it easy to learn.
What can we do with Python?
Hard question to answer because we can use Python for a lot of things. Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, Web Development, simple manipulation of data... well the possibilities are immense. There are awesome libraries out there to be used according to the need of the project: TensorFLow, Numpy, SciPy...
So far I was able to write small programs like the Iris flower classification (a very beginner program), compared and created charts on population growth, prices of cars sales according to their features, basic suggestion program based on previous choices from user and I even created a simple game with Python, what I find fantastic!
Well we all know that not everything can be only flowers, if you know what I mean. As every language, Python requires dedication, effort, practice, persistence and maybe the most important: Passion. So if you are learning Python, or thinking about it, be prepared to struggle sometimes and to study a lot, but I guess that is is like that with every language or every new subject we learn.
So, to finish, I really want to encourage you to start your studies with Python,not only if you are new to coding. It is a wonderful language and I learned so many things that are applicable to other languages too! The possibilities are that you fall in love with it or learn something new, but I guarantee, it totally worth a try!
