What next after learning Python ?


Learning  a new programming language is like getting a new powerful Motorcycle. You have that shiny new machine which is a work of art and is powerful like a beast. What you do with it? You ride it for a couple of days at neck break speed tackle on a few twisties seek attention of a few people my twisting the hell out of the throttle and then after a few days you just keep it in your garage where it sits idle for a couple of months or years till the time when you again get in the mood to take your old love for a whirl. Well, I don’t do that with my motorcycle or my programming skills and I would suggest that you don’t do it either. Programming is a lot like acquiring a new motorcycle skill, the more you use it responsibly the more mastery you get in it.
Many time I see people learning a programing language and then just keep it in their mind vault for months or years without using it sometimes it’s out of being clueless as to where to implement the newfound skills and at times it’s due to pure laziness. If it’s out of the latter then I can’t help you but if it’s because you are clueless as to how to use it then I am here to take your hand and show you the way or at least suggest you some.
  • The only mantra is to Learn more and keep exploring more.
  • Create a blog and share with others what you have learned so that people can learn from you and you can learn from them.
  • Implement your knowledge into some practical project on a personal or professional workspace. I am a software test engineer by profession and I have actually implemented my python knowledge to create a framework which helped us to reduce our testing effort by almost 50%. While doing that I learned more as I faced challenges and as I progressed towards resolving those challenges. You may also create a blog or website and put your knowledge to public so that you can actually contribute to the community from which you have acquired the knowledge.
  • I run a blog Thecodingproject where I regularly post topics/articles related to python and by doing this I actually learn something new every time since I have to research a topic myself before creating an article and posting it in my blog.
That’s about it all the more you use your skills the more you will enhance it and while you are on your journey to sharpen your new Jedi force you also give some back to the community from which you acquired the skill in the first place.


SO, folks this was all for this week but more stuffs are coming your way next week, til then happy coding.

If else in python : Beginners Python Programming Tutorial - How to become a Python Jedi - Part 5

Welcome back friends to another post on TheCodingProject and we are back with the fourth chapter of the Beginner Python programming tutorial - How to become a python Jedi. This time we are going to learn about decision making in python using the If Else statement in python.
The If-Else statement? In Python Programming, decision making is done by using a conditional statement like the If-Else statement. An If statement consists of 3 parts → If keyword a conditional operator the values which needs comparison
Now it should be kept in mind that the only values that an If condition returns are a True or a False , Using this True or a False we can decide if the condition that we are trying check is right or wrong. When Coding knowledge came to my rescue→ Let me tell you a story about how coding knowledge came to rescue . I have this neighbour named Alex who doesn't quite seem to be a regular guy. Wait ! actually he never seemed to me as a regular human 😟. This one day I was visiting him at h…

While Loop in python : How to become a Python Jedi - Beginners Python Programming Tutorial - Part 6

Welcome back friends to another post on TheCodingProject and we are back with the sixth chapter of the Beginner Python programming tutorial - How to become a python Jedi. This time we are going to learn how to use while loop in python.
The While Loop statement? In Python Programming, There are 3 types of loops →
While loop For loop Nested loops
Now to get into some action→
Let’s consider that two groups of aliens have landed on earth  out of these two one of the group is good & the other are the bad guys. The govt. Has given you the task of designing a system that takes in input from different eyewitnesses & then classify that whether the aliens that these eyewitnesses encounter are the good guys or bad guys.










Copy & paste the above code in your editor and run this code. What do you get ? When the input is Autobots it matches the condition aliens == "Autobots" & it enters the loop to prints the statement pointed by the print method.
We can also use negative conditions…

Flow charts in Python : How to become a Python Jedi - A Python programming Tutorial Part 2

We all know that programming is a set of instructions, but many a times we forget to think that this set of instructions should make sense to be called a computer program. You can get your dog to fetch a stick just by yelling “FETCH” but if type an instruction like “calculate” it will do nothing other than just sitting there and gaping at your face with that ugly python command prompt look.

To command a machine to do a task we need to pass a set of “precise and clear set of instructions that flows seamlessly from one step to another”. This flow of instruction is known as flow control or instruction flow control in the programming world. One handy tool to do this is a flowchart.

What the hell is a flowchart? Well simply put a flowchart is a graphical representation of instructions/logic sets that helps you to visualize the logic that you have formulated for a task. Let’s get into an example….

Let’s say that you want to automate the login to your facebook account and want to code the entir…
