Nowadays more people asking  me

  • I am new to programming what programming language I should learn.
  • I have vacation now what should I do.
  • Why I should I learn python rather than java and .Net dominated software fools world.
  • I want to learn network programming ,please give your suggestion.
  • I want to start web development what should I do.

Well Answer is learn Python.

Why you should Learn Python:

  • Dynamically typed.

In c you declare a variable

int c=3;

In Python


You need not mention data type in python it automatically identifies data types and performs operations.Isn’t it cool ?

  • No semi colon and indentation is used instead of curly braces.
C program


int main()


int a=3;


return 0;

In python


print a

for i in xrange(0,3):

   print i

As a programmer you indent your code for better readability and python uses indentation as delimiter.
