Python Basics For Absolute Beginners Notes

You don’t yet have enough experience to determine if learning an unfamiliar programming language will benefit you in the long run. Python Basics is an excellent option to learn Python if you’re thinking about it. The full spectrum nature of Python is a major factor. Certain languages are excellent for novices. They make programming simple by holding your hand. To the utmost, we may examine visual languages like Scratch. You can drag and drop blocks that represent various programming ideas, such as factors, loops, function calls and so forth, onto a graphic surface in Scratch. While Scratch may be simple to use for a few programmer, it is not suitable for creating professional applications.

Language Popularity and Opportunities:

You’ve heard about Python’s popularity. It can seem that building the app you’d like to build with a language regardless of its level of popularity is sufficient. For better or worse, however, the level of demand for a programming language is directly correlated with the caliber of libraries and employment opportunities the language will offer. To put it briefly, you should go towards more widely used technologies because there will be a greater variety of options and integrations.

Python Learning with the 80/20 Rule:

The 80/20 rule, which states that you can learn the majority of what you require to understand by concentrating on a small number of important concepts, is the foundation of these notes. We’ll go over the instructions and methods that are utilized in the great majority of cases, with an emphasis on how to programme practical answers to everyday issues.

By doing this, you will: 

  • Quickly pick up relevant programming skills 
  • Spend a lesser amount of time arguing over trivial issues 
  • Discover more real-world applications for Python 
  • Enjoy yourself more during the learning process.

These notes will let you learn the following topics:

1.  Setting up Python:

This topic helps learners understand the process of installing and configuring Python on their computer systems, thereby, making the necessary environment set up to start coding in Python.

2. Your First Python Programme:

Learners get started with Python programming by creating their first Python program which is the basics of the language. This also means knowing the grammar, writing simple programs and running them to see the output.

3. Strings and String Methods:

In this topic the string manipulation and manipulation are covered and various string methods are also addressed that allow learners to perform operations including concatenation, slicing and formatting.

4. Numbers and Math:

The learners experience the numeric data types in Python and they know how to do mathematical operations using the built-in functions and operators.

5. Functions and Loops:

Students will enjoyably learn the subject of functions in Python, exploring the idea of how to both define and call functions to be able to carry out code blocks efficiently. In addition, they also examine the repetitive task structures like for and while loops.

6. Finding and Fixing Code Bugs:

Error is not something to be afraid of. Acquiring the skills of debugging and being a detective who finds and fixes bugs in your code is included in this section of notes/book.

7. Conditional Logic and Control Flow:

Apply conditional statements to a program which will allow it to have a flow according to specific conditions.

8. Tuples, Lists and Dictionaries:

Study how to effectively organize data here. Check out different data structures such as tuples, lists and dictionaries that allow you to store and get data quickly.

9. OOP (Object-Oriented Programming):

Be familiar with the object-oriented approach that provides you with the ability to structure your code in a logical and easy-to-maintain way.

10.Modules and Packages:

Learn and use the packages and modules to access the already written code and save your precious time and effort on the projects.

11.File Input and Output:

Read and write in a natural and smooth way. Discover methods for managing documents like “storing” and “fetching” essential data.

12.Creating and Modifying PDF Files:

Acquire skills in handling PDF documents. Learn approaches to “making”, “editing” and “retaining” information from such documents.

13.Working with Databases:

Learners develop skills in using Python for database interactions, which include “connection to databases”, “querying data” and “performing database operations”.

14.Interaction with Web:

This topic will cover “web scraping”, “API integration” and other “Python-based” methods to interact with web resources, which will aid learners in retrieving and manipulating data from online sources.

15.Scientific Computing and Graphics:

Free Pythons analytical capabilities. Use libraries to do complicated “calculations”, “draw pictures” and make the “graphs” look cool.

16.Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs):

Create user-friendly apps. Be an expert in crafting interactive interfaces utilizing “buttons,” “menus,” and various other “visual components.”

When you are done with these topics, you will be excellently or confidently prepared/ready to be a competent Python programmer who can handle diverse projects and bring your ideas into reality.
