Pyper Python Programs: Blog tips on how to write professional-level Python code. I’d also love to talk about new features added in Python 3.
If you’re looking for a standard introduction to Python, check out our recommended books. They cover the basics of the language and are great resources if you get stuck or need a quick refresher.
This page is dedicated to short programs that can perform powerful operations. The programs here are meant to serve as examples of how to use Python to solve problems in the real world. Each example program includes the problem it solves, and a discussion of how the solution works.
Python’s documentation, tutorials, and guides are constantly evolving. The language has been around since 1991 and is used by organizations like NASA and Google to do everything from testing microchips at the International Space Station to powering Instagram, so it’s a mature language with tons of users and contributors.
Pyper Python Programs: Blog tips for writing professional-level Python code. I’d also love to talk about new features added in Python 3. Note that this article is not a tutorial or introduction to Python programming. Rather, it’s a collection of tips I’ve found useful when using the language in my own projects.
Disclaimer: This isn’t some magic list of tips that will make you a better programmer overnight. If you’re looking for that, this isn’t the right place for you. Instead, use this as a guide to areas you might want to investigate further and try out yourself. While all of the points below may be useful in one way or another, they won’t all be relevant to every project you work on.
This is a beginner friendly blog. As such, we’ll take the time to explain some of the “magic” going on behind the scenes, so you understand what’s really going on when you’re writing programs.
This blog does not assume much programming experience. If you’ve never written a line of code before, this is a good place to start. On the other hand, if you’ve been using Python for years, I hope there will still be plenty here to keep you interested (check out the “Advanced Programming” posts).
Although I’m sure it could be used that way, this blog isn’t designed as a tutorial or teaching tool. It’s more like a collection of notes and tips than anything else.
One final note: all of the code in this blog will work with both Python 2 and 3 (unless I say otherwise). This is important, because most other tutorials and books aren’t as forward-thinking and only cover 2.x!
This is an attempt to write a Python program that can be used as a template for any Python program you might want to write.
It consists of three sections:
– The first section demonstrates the essential features of Python syntax, variables, and data types.
– The second section contains several useful examples.
– The third section is designed to give you some practice writing simple Python programs.
At the end of this document, I’ve included a list of resources to help you learn more about Python.
Python was created by Guido van Rossum in 1990. It was intended as a replacement for the ABC language (itself inspired by SETL) capable of exception handling and interfacing with the Amoeba operating system. It has a fully dynamic type system and uses automatic memory management; it is therefore similar in varying respects to Perl, Lisp, Dylan, Pike, and others. Van Rossum is Python’s principal author, and his continuing central role in deciding the direction of Python is reflected in the title given to him by the Python community, benevolent dictator for life (BDFL).
Python is a high-level programming language and it is generally easier to learn and code in Python than in other languages like Java and C++. This course aims to teach everyone the basics of programming computers using Python.
We cover the basics of how one constructs a program from a series of simple instructions in The Python Tutorial. Then we’ll move on to creating our own scripts with variables, conditional tests, functions, lists, dictionaries, and basic text parsing. We will explore different modules in the Standard Library as well as some external packages like Pandas for statistical analysis and NumPy for scientific computing.
Through real-world examples and practical exercises, students will learn important programming techniques and skills that can be applied to further their own projects or goals.
