Introduction to Python Workshop Webinar 21 November 2018, 17:00 (GTM UTC)
Python is an easy to learn, powerful and general-purpose programming language that’s powering the world’s leading companies.
This “most-searched-for language” sits in the top three programming languages used in the world, with nearly 40% of developers working with Python, and a further 25% wishing to do so. It’s also widely adopted in industry and currently used by Pixar for producing films, Netflix for recommending content and Google for crawling the web, amongst many other innovative giants.
The language’s two main advantages are its simplicity and flexibility. Its straightforward syntax and use of indented spaces make it easy to learn, read and share.
