Is Python Easy to Learn?

By: Jocelyn Fernandez

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word “python”? If you are not into computers, you will think about a snake right? Well lucky for you I am NOT writing about snakes.

Python is a programming language used by many programmers to code. There is a lot to know about this language. It is not like SQL or Javascript. Python is mostly used to create desktop applications and web applications.

When we had to choose a track at the beginning of the semester, I wanted to choose something challenging and interesting. I noticed that so many people were choosing Javascript so I decided to be different and choose Python. Yes, I was the only one in the classroom to choose Python and sometimes it was hard because I was not able to receive help from others around me.

I learned so many things from this track on teamtreehouse.com It helped me understand how Python influences so many programs on the computers. Python uses an interpreter rather than a compiler, which basically works the same way as a compiler. It is also a lot easier to code dates and times, as well as tables.

I expected this track to be really difficult and was nervous. For example, hearing the term “programming language” instantly made me think that I had to come up with most of the coding, but it was not that way. I was glad. The track was not what I expected, but don’t get me wrong, it was a relief because I would not know where to start if that was the case.  

No, Python is not easy to learn, but I enjoyed it. It is easier than any other programming languages, but not too easy. Luckily, I'm pretty sure that I will use this information in the future. If not the actual coding, I will be able to use my experience of persevering through a difficult challenge. I want to be an accountant and accountants are usually surrounded by computers and challenges. People will never know what is going to happen in the future but I would rather be prepared and have an idea of how to use this programming language.
