Map, Filter, and Reduce are three functions that promote a functional programming approach. We'll go over these and Lambda, in this python programming tutorial.
In this guide, we're focusing more on some of the intermediate list capabilities of Python. If you already have a basic understanding of lists, you should already be familiar with tasks like list creation, appending, retrieving by index, and so on.
Whether you're a beginner programmer or at the stage of your career where you're looking to improve, or even reconsider programming altogether, this article will be useful to you. Over the next few sections, I provide tips based on my 10+ years of software development and IT management.
According to how frequently language tutorials are searched on Google, Java is the most popular programming language. While Java has consistently maintained popularity over the past 7 years, Python has grown the most at 10% over the past 5 years, with PHP losing the most at -5%.
In this Python programming tutorial, we're going to focus on programming Python exclusively in the Interpreter or REPL (read-eval-print-loop). It's a handy tool for quickly executing Python calculations.
In this guide, we're going to learn the basics of HTML in order to make a simple website in less than 5 minutes.
Call is a function you can use when you need to invoke one object's methods on another object and also define the scope with the "this" argument.
VirtualEnv allows us to create isolated Python environments, where a project's dependencies, executables, and even python versoin are self-contained. This keeps the global filesystem safe and allows us to create multiple Python projects without worrying about potential conflicts.
By the end of this tutorial, you'll have Python installed and running on your local machine. We won't be going into Python programming concepts. We'll save that for another article.
