Python Projects for Beginners

  2. Your First Projects
  3. Getting More Advanced
  4. Conclusion

Learning any new language can be difficult. Spending time reading textbooks or watching videos may not do much help unless you put the learned knowledge into use. Also, building projects will help you bring together different concepts.

But before you even begin your first project, you will want to know where you're able to go if you ever get stuck and need help.

Your Resources

Stack Overflow is a wonderful site to ask questions. If you have a question about something, it is likely that someone else had the same or a similar question in the past. You can also look into Python 3.10.4 Documentation if that interests you, though it can be hard to navigate through if you are not used to reading documentation yet. Other resources for general Python knowledge are websites such as w3schools.

Your First Projects

Some beginner projects that utilize lists, tuples, dictionaries, and a few other basic modules include:

  1. Acronyms
  2. Rock Paper Scissors
  3. BMI Calculator
  4. Roman Numbers to Decimals
  5. Hangman Game

Getting More Advanced

When you get to a level where you are more comfortable with Python, you may want a little more challenging projects. Take a look at the following:

  1. Language Translator
  2. Convert text to Speech
  3. 2048 Game
  4. Contact Book
  5. Alarm Clock
  6. Numbers to Words

Conclusion

Whether you are just starting out with programming or a veteran in computer science refreshing their memory on Python, there are always new, fun and exciting projects to build. If you are looking for more advanced projects, keep a look out for a future post. I am still looking for the best and most popular projects that may interest everyone!

Until then,
Happy coding!
