Python is a popular, high-level programming language known for its simplicity, readability, and flexibility.
Here is a Simple tutorial for beginners to get started with Python which kick starts your python knowledge without burdening you with all the the technical details in this first baby step.
1. First, you’ll need to install Python on your computer. You can download the latest version of Python from the official Python website (https://www.python.org/).
2. Once you have Python installed, you can start using it in a few different ways:
- You can use an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) such as Microsoft Visual Studio, PyCharm, IDLE, or Spyder to write and run your Python code. These IDEs provide a text editor, debugger, and other tools to help you develop your code.
- You can also use a simple text editor such as Notepad, TextEdit or vi editor in Unix and Linux to write your code, and then run it from the command line.
3. Here is a simple example of Python code that prints “Hello, World!” to the console:
4. To run this code, you can either:
- Save the code to a file with a .py extension (e.g., hello.py), and then run it from the command line using the Python interpreter as follows:
orpython3 hello.py # if you have multiple versions including python 3
- Or, if you are using an IDE, you can open the file in the IDE and run it from there.
5. Python is a dynamically-typed language, which means that you don’t need to specify the data type of a variable when you declare it. Here is an example of how to create a variable and assign a value to it:
msg = "Hello, World!"
6. Python has a wide range of built-in data types, including integers, floating-point numbers, strings, and booleans. You can use these data types to create variables and perform operations on them.
7. Python also has a number of control structures such as if statements, for loops, and while loops, which allow you to control the flow of your program. Here is an example of an if statement: Python classify code blocks by indentation so pay attention to indentations.
x = 10
if x > 5:
print("x is greater than 5")
print("x is not greater than 5")
8. In addition to its built-in data types and control structures, Python has a large standard library that provides a wide range of functionality, including file I/O, networking, and data manipulation. You can also install third-party libraries using the pip package manager to extend the capabilities of Python even further.
Hope this short tutorial has given you a good introduction to Python. To learn more, you can refer to the official Python documentation (https://docs.python.org/).
