⭐️ Introduction to Python ⭐️

First, I will give you a short introduction to Python in general, why it's so popular and what it's used for. 🤔

⭐️ Basic Building Blocks of Programming⭐️

After having installed Python and set up the local environment, we will start with the basic building blocks of programming, like different data types, variables, functions, conditionals, looping etc.
You will learn all these concepts with hands-on examples.

⭐️ Modules⭐️

As a next step you will learn how to modularize your own Python project, but also how to use some built-in python modules.

⭐️ Project: Countdown App⭐️

With all these knowledge we can then build our next project to write a small program that accepts a goal and a deadline as user input and then outputs the number of days remaining till the goal deadline.

⭐️ Packages, PyPI & pip⭐️

In this section you will learn what packages, the difference of modules and packages and how to install them.

⭐️ Project: Automation with Python⭐️

After having learnt about third-party packages and how to install them with pip, we will use an external module for our next automation project, where we learn how to automate tasks when working with excel spreadsheet files.

⭐️ OOP - Classes and Objects⭐️

Finally, we will dive into object oriented programming, where you learn what Classes and Objects are in programming and Python specifically and why this concept is so useful.

⭐️ Project: API Request to GitLab⭐️

In the final demo project you will learn another common use case with Python, which is communicating with other applications over the internet. By making a request to fetch some data from GitLab API.
In this specific case, we will list the GitLab project of a specific user.

Article is amazing, all the hardwork you did paid of damn well.
Thanks for making this amazing bundle.

But you should definitely update those stastics.

☝️😄 JavaScript ain't that poor dear.

Thanks a lot! 😊

I also think JavaScript seems too low in the statistics I refer to. But it's from 2020 and their sources are GitHub and Google Trends, so..
Thanks for the link, I know the StackOverflow survey's. And I guess the survey can be different of course to the other statistic. I think it's always difficult to rank these, there are several rankings out there (like PYPL or TIOBE) and all have different rankings, because they look at different criteria. 🤷🏻‍♀️

But I just wanted to make the point that Python is popular 😊

You surely aced that.
