Is this series for you?

I know, I know! You are the audience. But I am specifically targeting the people who are just getting started or new to the programming world. It does not mean people who know programming won't get anything. There might be some concepts that you have not learned yet, or you want to refresh the concepts you have learned once. It is always a good idea to develop a strong core.

What is the use of Python?

Nowadays, you will see everyone exaggerating the use of Python. People will say, python can be used here and here and here. But should you use Python everywhere?

The simple answer is NO. I agree, Python is an amazing language, but every programming language has its use case. Python is broadly used for the following tasks:

  1. Back-end development
  2. System Scripting / Automation Scripting
  3. Internet of Things
  4. Data Science & Machine Learning
  5. Small Part of Software / Game Development

Time to decide. Now, after reading all these if you think that Python can be useful to you then let's do it.

Let's do it!
