Learn Python Programming

Are you new to Python and want to understand how it works? If so, here is the opportunity to learn Python from scratch at Online Idea Lab.

What is Python?

Code you’d use to print the text “Hello World” on your screen using Java programming is 

class A{
public static void main(String args[]){
System.out.printIn("Hello World");

But in Python programming it is:

Print(“Hello, World!”)

That’s it! Simple isn’t it?

Python is a rising star in the programming world for two main reasons: 1) Python code syntax uses English keywords making it beginner-friendly language, and 2) the big range of tasks it can handle from web development to machine learning to robotics.

Python is a highly readable, free & open-source, object-oriented, a high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. Its syntax emphasizes readability and therefore reduces the cost of program maintenance. It comes with modules and packages encouraging program modularity and code reuse. It has a clean visual layout and supports OOPS.

The Python 2 language, i.e. Python 2.7.x, is "sunsetting" on January 1, 2020. With the end-of-life, only Python 3.6.x and later, e.g. Python 3.8 which should be released in October 2019 (currently in beta), will be supported.

There is no compilation step, the edit-test-debug cycle is incredibly fast, and debugging Python programs is easy.

All thanks to Guido Van Rossum, a Dutch programmer who developed Python in 1991 and made it popular!

Python for beginners

Knowledge is power, right?

If you’re looking to enhance your knowledge and a career in web or software development and stand out in a crowded field of applicants, you need to figure out which programming language will give you the highest return on investment.

And that brings us to learn Python!

Python is the only language continuously growing for the last five years and it shows no signs of disappearing according to Stackoverflow popularity survey 2015-19. It is used in web applications, desktop apps, network servers, machine learning, media tools and more.

Advantages of Python Program:

  • it is an easy and intuitive language just as powerful as major competitors like Java, C, Javascript.
  • it is open source, so anyone can contribute to its development.
  • it has the code that is as understandable as plain English.
  • it is suitable for everyday tasks and provides a short development time.

Our Python programming for beginners course covers theory and practical labs on basic concepts such as Python installation, string operations, data structures, control & loop statements, data & file operations, regular expression, modules & packages, object-oriented programming, and functions & classes.

This Python tutorial for beginners is suitable for those who are new to Python programming and for ones who know to code with no prior knowledge of Python.

You will learn foundational level concepts through step-by-step guidance on programming, tools, and techniques.


Python is an easy, simple language and perfect for rookies. Its likeness to English and readability simply complements this.

Wide Range of Applications

It is used in highly quantitative domains such as finance, oil and gas, quantum physics, and signal processing, for scientific computing. Also, it's the best programming language for Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, web development, and DevOps.

Gateway to Data Science Career

Python offers extensive data visualization support, data science packages. Learning Python opens door to data science career. Average salary of a data scientist with Python skills is $94,212(source: payscale).

Largest Developer Community

Since Python is an open-source, flexible programming language, it has a large community that wants to see the language grow continuously. Stackoverflow recently crowned Python is the most questioned language on their site, overtaking JavaScript. It is the third most-used language at Github.

Productivity and Speed

Presence of third-party modules, extensive support libraries, OSI-approved open source license, user-friendly data structures, and the wide base of users & active developers, have made Python more agile and productive.

We are always keen to know what our students have to say about their experience at Online Idea Lab. Read below and know what they have shared.

This is my first experience of an external training course apart from my regular B.E.  Since Data Science is in boom, I want to pursue my career in that field and heard from my friends that hands-on experience in Python is a must. Since this institute was nearby and to my luck was offering Python courses, I attended their sessions. Believe me! this offers the best python tutorial for beginners. Amazing trainers who guide you from scratch and walk you through a lot of case studies, real-time coding exercises and sample projects. I strongly recommend them.

Ravi Teja, Student

I opted for basics and advanced Python training here to make my hands-on experience strong and prepare for future interviews. All the libraries, functions, modules and packages of Python were explained in detail. Definitely worth the effort and good value for money. Cheers!

Abhilasha K, Sr. Software Engineer

I was scouting through best Python training institutes in Bangalore and found this with good reviews saying minimal students in a batch and they get personal attention. I got the one I was looking for where I wanted to learn Python in detail from basics and in no hurry. And it lived up to my expectations.  Trainer was excellent, has a lot of patience, clarified many doubts, and he goes extra miles to share his work experience. I am totally happy.

Debabrata Roy, Python Aspirant

Everything is well organized from trainers to course curriculum which covers the latest version of Python, libraries and advanced topics. One of the best courses on Python for beginners. I would like to refer my peers as well.
