You should learn this language! Python is one of the fastest growing languages, it's even renowned as the language of the decade. You can use Python on any operating system to build whatever you like, including but not limited to GUI Applications, Web Applications, and Console Applications.
I'll teach you how this seemingly strange language is actually quite simple. We cover the fundamentals to writing Python code from Syntax, Datatypes, Operators, and Looping. We'll even take a look into 3rd party package management!
Variables are standard placeholders in every language, its no different with Python.
Practice playing with these string examples!
"TUPLES" are pretty much "LISTS", only with less functionality, faster processing speed (CPU-wise), and their values cannot be changed. This video covers the need to know when you encounter a tuple.
Practice your looping knowledge with these sample questions. An additional answer sheet is attached if you cannot figure them out!
Lets test your skill!
These are awesome! Arbitrary arguments and Arbitrary Key Word arguments.
Test your might!

My name is Jesse.
I was born in Michigan, but I've been living in Central Florida the past 10 years.
I've been programming since I was 12. Beginning with QBasic in school, IRC Scripting at home, and HTML in Netscape Navigator on weekends. In those days I had to "View Source" to figure out how to do anything! I wrote my first website at this age using the GeoCities free websites. I then moved to AngelFire for a while. Remember those days?
When I hit 20, I spent several years freelancing with the skills I picked up from terribly long nights of studying. Freelancing was difficult for me because being a salesman wasn't in my blood, but I enjoyed the coding parts! I primarily used Linux, PHP, MySQL, and CSS. Then jQuery a bit later.
These days I live in the corporate world. I work with a small team of people and I enjoy it. I'm doing all sort of things from building solid back-ends, REST API's, HTML5/JS games, Python Django, and sometimes a bit of monkey work.
I enjoy explaining programming not because I like to talk, but because I find it rewarding to help people along their way. In fact, I found it so rewarding that I created a Youtube channel with hundreds of videos covering programming topics.
I hope you can benefit from my years of learning, I try to present it in a simple way so you don't need wrestle with all the questions I had!
