Python is used in different fields such as web development, Data Science, Big Data, App Development, and Machine Learning.  It may take 4-5 months to learn Python by spending a minimum of 4 hours every day for a beginner.

First, start with learning the basics of Python such as:

  • Functions
  • Control structures (for loops, while loops, and if-else statements)
  • Data types (Strings, Lists, Tuples, Dictionaries)
  • Object-oriented programming (object, class, constructor, methods)

After getting familiar with basics, then learn the following essential Python libraries:

  •  Pandas – for Data Cleaning, data manipulation, data analysis
  •  NumPy – for Numerical computations and managing multi-dimensional arrays
  •  SciPy – for linear algebra computations
  •  Matplotlib and Seaborn – for data visualization
