What is the Best way to learn Python in 2017 ?

What is the best way to learn Python? This is the question many people ask me when they meet us to discuss on Python courses offered by myTectra.

Python is a general-purpose interpreted, interactive, object-oriented and high-level programming language. Currently Python is the most popular Language in IT. Python adopted as a language of choice for almost all the domain in IT including Web Development, Cloud Computing (AWS, OpenStack, VMware, Google Cloud, etc.. ), Infrastructure Automation , Software Testing, Mobile Testing, Big Data and Hadoop, Data Science, etc.

It’s no secret that Python is one of the most commonly used programming languages.For the past five years, Python has held the number one position as the“most popularcoding language.”

Python is a favorite among many developers for its strong emphasis on readability and efficiency,especially when compared to other languages like Java, PHP, or C++.

If you’re like many people who first started out with Java, C, or Perl,the learning curve for Python is practically nonexistent. But the fact that it’s easy to learn is also the reason why some people don’t see Python as a necessary programming skill.

7 Reasons you should learn Python now

Python is a favorite among many developers for its strong emphasis on readability and efficiency, especially when compared to other languages like Java, PHP, or C++.

Sure, it’s old, but it’s 1980s old, not Cobol or Fortran old. Besides, if something works, why change it, especially when there are a so many ways to improve it.

Actually, depending on how you view it, longevity is a good thing in itself—a sign of stability and reliability.

If you’re like many people who first started out with Java, C, or Perl, the learning curve for Python is practically nonexistent. But the fact that it’s easy to learn is also the reason why some people don’t see Python as a necessary programming skill.

I’ll be honest with you, my love of Python didn’t really develop until a few years ago. It took a long career of painful lessons to appreciate everything this language and platform have to offer. My goal with this short post is to save you the same pain, and convince you why Python is something you need to know.

Python is easy to learn

Well, at least it’s “easier” when compared to many of the other programming languages available to you. There isn’t a lot of ceremony to Python’s syntax, which makes it readable even when you’re not a Python expert. My experience is that learning and teaching Python through examples is easier than approaching, say, Ruby or Perl the same way, since the syntax of Python has far fewer rules and special cases. The focus isn’t on language intricacies, it’s on what you want to accomplish with your code.

 

6 Reasons to learn AngularJS

Angular 2 was released in late 2016 and brought Angular into the modern web with its desktop and mobile applications. If you build Web applications, chances are you’ve heard of Angular, the popular JavaScript framework for building full-featured, client-side, browser-based applications. The recent release of Angular 2 (September 2016) brought Angular into the modern Web and expanded its reach into mobile and desktop applications.

So what’s all of the Angular 2 excitement about? How is it different from every other JavaScript framework out there? Is it worth learning? What’s there to love?

Here are six reasons to love Angular 2.

  1. Enhanced developer productivity with Angular 2

The Web has changed significantly during these past five years. With ECMAScript (ES) 2015, we have modules, classes and arrow functions. Angular 2 leverages these features to make its coding patterns more consistent and easier to learn.

Is AWS Career Path is a right choice to advance my career ?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a dynamic, growing business unit within Amazon.com.Since early
2006, Amazon Web Services has provided companies of all sizes with an infrastructure platform
in the cloud .Using AWS, companies can requisition compute power, storage, and other services
– gaining access to a global computing infrastructure .

 As the use of cloud computing increases day by day and many companies from startup to large
corporate moving on to AWS, jobs with AWS skills also emerge. The question is are you on the
right AWS career path?

While the boom of cloud computing makes traditional IT infrastructure jobs absolute, many
professional see the cloud technology as an opportunity to grow their career in a right direction.
However, those attempting to migrate to cloud computing careers must take specific
paths, and understand certain cloud computing technologies are valued more than others.In cloud
computing AWS is the market leader and choosing AWS career path is a right direction one can
make today in IT.

Will Python Replace Java?

According to the IT programming trend, Java is currently more popular than other programming languages in terms of number of jobs, number of existing Java developers and overall usage statics in IT compared to Python. According to the latest usage statistics posted on a popular Technology Survey site, Java is being used by 3.0% websites as a server-side programming language, whereas only 0.2% of websites use Python. However, all the recent reports have highlighted that the usage and popularity of Python is growing drastically compared to Java where the Java usage is coming down year on year.

At myTectra we have been monitoring the Trend of Python and Java since 2013 based on number of Jobs posted inNaurki for Bangalore region since 2013. In the below table we could able to see that Java requirement is coming down year on year whereas Python requirement has grown from 200 in 2014 to 6500+ in 2017.

What Is the Internet of Things ( IoT )?

 There’s been a lot of talk about the “Internet of Things” (IoT). But, what exactly does that term mean in the realms of cyberspace?

For the human race, which is relatively disorganized by nature, the “Internet of Things” is a great innovation. However, for people who value their privacy, the “Internet of Things” could be considered a massive intrusion.

Essentially, the “Internet of Things” means having every electronic device-and many other things-connected and interacting in real time with the Internet in some way so it can be tracked and monitored. By having everything categorized this way through the Internet “cloud,” the reasoning goes, you’ll be able to organize your life better by not needing to pay “time consuming” attention to your life.

There are upsides to such an existence. Having your phone buzz and remind you to buy eggs because your refrigerator sent a notification telling your phone you’re almost out of eggs, for example. Who doesn’t want to be reminded they’re almost out of eggs?

 

Are You Ready For IoT – Internet of Things

Come 2020 and millions or even billions of smart electronic devices, linked by the Internet, would interact with each other independent of human intervention. This network of interacting electronic devices is named as the Internet of Things (IoT). Looking at it from our times (2013), one could expect the IoT to consist of PCs, tablet computers, digital cameras, e-Book readers, mobile phones, robots, private and public computer networks and whatever new smart electronic devices that would be developed between now and 2020.

What would that mean to you and me? Here are some of the key benefits… and costs.

BENEFITS

Automation: Automation will have reached such high levels as to cause a paradigm shift in our lifestyles. One of the most significant changes, that we can expect to see is that our lives will become far more comfortable than now. Physically, we would have to travel less. There will be even more time to dedicate to our primary occupations and of course, to vacations, rest and relaxation.

Is Artificial Intelligence Possible?

Artificial Intelligence has been brain-dead since the 1970s.” This rather ostentatious remark made by Marvin Minsky co-founder of the world-famous MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, was referring to the fact that researchers have been primarily concerned on small facets of machine intelligence as opposed to looking at the problem as a whole. This article examines the contemporary issues of artificial intelligence (AI) looking at the current status of the AI field together with potent arguments provided by leading experts to illustrate whether AI is an impossible concept to obtain.

Because of the scope and ambition, artificial intelligence defies simple definition. Initially AI was defined as “the science of making machines do things that would require intelligence if done by men”. This somewhat meaningless definition shows how AI is still a young discipline and similar early definitions have been shaped by technological and theoretical progress made in the subject. So for the time being, a good general definition that illustrates the future challenges in the AI field was made by the American Association for Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) clarifying that AI is the “scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behaviour and their embodiment in machines”.
