Hi, are you a beginner at Python? Are you looking to get started as a Python developer and then get a job or freelancing career, and then potentially even build a business? Well, then this video is for you.
In this video, we're going to cover how to get started with Python as a complete beginner, there's going to be a Code Along, which means you can see our screen and see how we code in Python, which is going to be a guide for beginners to get started with Python, even if you have no experience with coding. And I'm going to explain to you how to actually progress from beginner to more advanced and, ultimately, to Freelancer or business owner.
So let's get started. First of all,
So how do you get started with Python? Let's say you're not a developer yet, where you have very basic knowledge, just several months of knowledge, what can you do next to learn Python? Well, what you need is a simple guide, like what we have in this video in a few minutes, where you learn the basics, like what are the different building blocks of how a programming language works, and how can you use them, then you need to start practicing. Practice by yourself. Follow a course. Follow videos such as this, a Code Along video, or follow some other video where you learn how to code
Once you know how to code and once you're fairly confident, but not great in any way, just fairly confident that you can build basic things, then you can go ahead and start building more complicated stuff. For example, more advanced web applications that are actually on the internet so you can show your friends. Now the purpose for this is you won't know how to do all this while you're doing it. So you're going to research while you're doing it. You're going to watch tutorials while you're doing it, you're going to watch how to use libraries, how to use all that stuff that is pre-made on the internet and then figure out how those people built those libraries, and then figure out how to code based on that. That's one method
Another method is to learn coding from scratch, where you go to school and study for four years, I don't recommend that method.If you're an intelligent person, and you're looking to spend a lot of time because it does take time, and you're looking to put in real effort because it does take real effort and you're not looking for a get rich quick scheme, or some easy solution, then you absolutely can make it happen like that.
This is for people who are individual thinkers, who know how to figure stuff out, who know how to do web research, basic web research, and who want to put in those four hours a day of practice. Okay, if that's you, then keep watching, because you're exactly to that person who should be a Python developer and who should become a freelancer.
After you learn basic and slightly less basic techniques, part of which I'm going to show you in this video, you can get your first job or your first client. This is going to be a fairly basic job or a fairly basic freelancing contract, because you're not really going to know how to fix major issues. But you can fix little issues for a couple of hundred dollars, on a platform like upwork.com. Once you go on a platform like that, what you want to do is build your profile. And we're going to talk about that in
Now, after that, you'll have some track record, and you'll solve some issues. If you can solve the issue that you're being paid to solve, just don't do it, cancel the contract snd give them their money back. It’s not a big deal.
But if you solve a few problems for people, and they pay you, you can move on to a contract where you can basically build something from scratch. Although nothing is really from scratch, when we're talking about Python, because of all the existing frameworks and libraries that exist.
How do you become a business owner afterwards? Well, you take those skills, and then you basically hire people that are as good or better than you at Python. And then you basically work with them, because they'll be the developers and you'll be the business owner. Now, once you have that situation and you're good enough with Python, so you can interview developers and pay them money based on what the contracts are paying you, then you're making a profit.
And that's a business because then you're not the full-time developer yourself anymore in the business. Someone else is doing the majority of the work. But that's about eight to 12 months down the line if you have zero Python experience right now.
So now I'm going to let Keyvan take over and he's gonna share his screen and explain to you how Python works, how you can get started, and you can code along with him and learn a lot about Python just by doing that. So let's move over to Keyvan. I wish you guys good luck and do exactly what he says.
