Why Learn Python- Top Reasons 2020

Python is everywhere. If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past 5-7 years you must have heard of python in one way or another. It is the largest growing high-level and interpreted programming language to-date. Learning Python makes you eligible for even more jobs in the market compared to C++ or Java. The average Python developer in the US (2019) earns an average yearly salary of slightly more than $120k. In addition to the lucrative job offers, Python offers you simplicity at its best.

For example, if you were to print a line using Java it would be something like this:
public class HelloWorld {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        System.out.println(“I’am awesome”);


 In Python:

print(“I’am awesome”)

That’s it!
That is all you need to do in Python. Learning python allows you to automate and implement scripts very easily with a clean syntax that is easy to understand for beginners as well. The Learning Curve for Python is slightly smaller than that of Java!

But Wait!!! Simplicity is just the tip of the iceberg. Python isn’t all that famous just because of its simplicity. Python is used in almost every major aspect of the development industry. Python is not only equipped with a great library it also comes with a gigantic number of third-party libraries, APIs, frameworks (over 125,000 as of 2018), making its use sustainable in almost any working environment.

Let’s see a shortlist of the most popular uses of Python:

  1. Big Data Analysis and Data Science using Numpy, Pybrain, Scipy, Pandas, Matplotlib, Pydoop, Pyspark, etc.
  2. Machine Learning and Deep Learning and AI using Tensorflow, Scikit-learn, etc.
  3. Web Development using Django, Flask. Pymysql, Pylons, etc.
  4. Cybersecurity using Nmap, Yara, Requests, Cryptography, etc.
  5. Desktop Applications using PyQt, Gtk, WxWidgets, etc.
  6. Mobile Applications using Kivy, BeeWare, etc.

Furthermore, all these extensions and libraries are not limited to any specific OS. You can spread you wings with Python. It has support on Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Solaris, etc. To add more for thought, Python can also be integrated with Java, .NET components or C/C++ libraries because of its flexible and robust nature. It is easy to install and can be the next career jump you are looking for!

If you are somewhat convinced and you want to learn Python, you would be amazed to know that as it is an open-source programming language, Python has massive support in popular development communities such as Github, Stackoverflow, Codeacademy and Dev.

You can sign up here for the CDIP course on Introduction to Python and Big Data Analysis or Python and Django for Web Development & API Development.

And if you are still not convinced, you should note that Python is used by a number of big companies like Google, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Disney, Yahoo!, Nokia, IBM, and many others. The Raspberry Pi relies on Python as its main programming language as well making it an absolute industry standard in 2019.

On an ending note, we believe that python will still continue to grow and devour most of the industry standards in its way, as it has done with Django for PHP.

It is always better to be on the winning side. 🙂
