We are very happy to start a new section “Python Tutorials “on crazylearner. Hope you will enjoy our Free python Tutorials online.In the section of Python Tutorials , our First objective is to clear all the initial informations regarding the language like: Why python, its perquisites ,obtaining python for your computer.
Although Python is a high-level language, it is not English or some other natural human language. The Python translator does not understand “add the numbers two and three”. Python is a formal language with its own specific rules and formats, which these tutorials will introduce gradually, at a pace intended for a beginner.
The first and the most important question is to ask yourself that why should you go for PYTHON and not any other language?
Well, Python is one of the easiest languages to learn and use, while at the same time being very powerful. It is used by many of the most highly productive professional programmers. A few of the places that use Python extensively are Google, the New York Stock Exchange, Industrial Light and Magic, etc.
Prerequisites of learning python
- You need a basic understanding of programming
- You need experience writing working code in a modern programming language.
- You need a basic understanding of Object Oriented Programming as Python is an Object Oriented Scripting language.
- You need a Text Editor.
Obtaining python for your computer
If you do need a copy of Python, go to the Downloads page linked to http://www.python.org. Be careful to choose the version for your operating system and hardware.
You just need to execute the installer, and interact enough to agree to all the default choices. Python works in Windows as well as on Apples and in the free operating system Linux. The latest stable version is 3.3
Double-click on the installer. Find and run the MacPython.mpkg that is inside. Follow the defaults for installation.
Python is generally installed, though Idle is not always installed. Look for something like ‘idle-python’ (the name in the Ubuntu distribution).
Hope our very first post regarding the language helped you to understand the basics of the language.Next we would post about the coding (conditionals and loops).
Till then “Stay Happy,Stay Foolish,Stay Blessed”. 🙂
