Blog: Why Python is popular — Why should you learn Python
Python is an easy, readable and powerful language. It can be used for a wide variety of things from developing a simple web portal to powering an AI algorithm. This makes Python a must try/ learn language for a software developer.
Python is an old language that regained popularity
Yes, it’s an old language that re-gained popularity due to its adoption for the development of AI algorithms and applications. As everyone knows AI is one of the top areas where most of the tech giants are investing their time, people and money.

Why Python for Machine Learning /AI
Machine Learning is the heart of AI. As the name implies the machine is learning from the inputs, actions of the user. These input data is used for predicting the output in a similar situation. So everything in AI is about data. Collecting data, processing data, storing data, understanding data, etc. The simple/readable python code will make this task easier. In addition to the native libraries/ packages, there are a huge number of third-party packages available over the internet to make the development fast. This also a solid reason for Python is being used as the language for development. Thanks to the online community and opensource developers who keep this space active.
Where to start?
You should start from the very basics, there are a large number of tutorials available across the web. Here is the link to a great video tutorial which will help you to kick start with Python if you have the basic programming knowledge.
So being a highly demanded language in the modern age learning Python will give an extra mile to your carrier for sure. Being a simple and easy to understand language learning it won’t be a problem for anyone with basic programming knowledge and developer DNA:).
