Beginners in the field of data science who are not familiar with programming often have a hard time figuring out where they should start.

Fundamentals of Python consists of a discussion of basic building blocks of the Python programming language. Here, “Fundamentals of Python” is divided into the following categories. And we will be discussing each topic separately.

Unlike most programming languages python uses indentation to mark a block of code. According to python style guidelines or PEP8, you should keep an indent size of four.

Most of the programming languages provide indentation for better code formatting and don’t enforce to have it. But in Python it is mandatory. This is why indentation is so crucial in Python.

A basic Python curriculum can be broken down into 4 essential topics that include:

  1. Data types (int, float, strings)

  2. Compound data structures (lists, tuples, and dictionaries)

  3. Conditionals, loops, and functions

  4. Object-oriented programming and using external libraries
