The quickest way to learn Python?

Jump straight into it! 🔥

Start by wrapping your head around the basics – the syntax, the variables, loops, data types.

Many of my blog posts will serve as a dependable guide during this stage!

Once you’ve got a handle on the basics, it’s time to challenge yourself – start a project of your own. It could be anything but I’d recommend you start with a website – any website will be fine. This is where the learning truly begins!

You’ll stumble, make mistakes, and probably fail a few times because, well, you’re a beginner and that’s part of the process.

Can A Python Developer Work From Home?

The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed how people work, with remote work becoming more common. Python is a popular programming language used in various industries and you might wonder if you can work from home as a Python developer.

In this article, we will explore the answer to this question and I’ll provide tips for you based on my experience – how I went from working as a QA engineer in the office to becoming an entirely remotely working Python developer.

Can A Python Developer Work From Home?

The short answer is YES, a Python developer can work from home. Many companies allow remote work for their developers, and there are also freelance opportunities for those who prefer to work independently.

In fact, remote work can be particularly well-suited for Python developers, who often work on projects that can be completed independently.

However, it is important to note that some employers may require their developers to work on-site, particularly for certain projects that require close collaboration with other team members.

It is important to clarify your employer’s remote work policy before making any assumptions about working from home.

Is It Worth It To Do A Python Certification?

When you first think about learning Python and becoming a Python developer you must have thought or heard about Python certification. I started my career as a QA engineer and I was in the same situation as you. I’ll answer the “Is It Worth It To Do A Python Certification?” question based on my personal experience in this post!

Is It Worth It To Do A Python Certification?

Yes, but whether or not a Python certification is worth it depends on your goals and the specific certification you are considering.

Certification can demonstrate a level of knowledge and proficiency in the language, which can be beneficial for Python beginners seeking jobs or those looking to advance in their careers.

However, I can tell you from my own personal experience, employers value real-world experience and a portfolio of projects so gaining hands-on experience through personal projects and internships is way more important than just having a Python certification.

Python XML Parse – ElementTree Reader & Parser

In this Python XML tutorial, you will learn how to use xml.etree.ElementTree package (which is one of the many Python XML parsers) to process XML response.

For this tutorial, you can use your own XML response or follow the steps below and use the one I have provided.

The Python XML parsing steps I’m about to explain and guide you through were developed alongside a refund payment integration I was working on in Django. 

We’re going to explore the parsing end result for the SOAP XML response I wrote about in the previous post. The SOAP XML parsing post was written with a focus on an actual regex parsing in Python and all the steps before you get to the actual XML scheme style response. 

In this post, I’m about to give you a Python XML tutorial for parsing XML schemes when you already have a decoded version of an XML response and you see the information.

The post here is about extracting specific values from the whole XML tree without using regex or any other typical Python parsing tools, but the actual xml.etree.ElementTree package (the right way)

By the way, Roberts Greibers here – in my day job, I’m working as a Python Django backend developer for a local company in Riga, Latvia, and building a white label payment gateway platform. 

Over the past couple of years, I’ve gathered a lot of experience in the FinTech industry, practical knowledge of how payment systems work, how to develop, test and deploy them with minimal headache. 

Of course, I can’t go into too much detail here in a single blog post, but if you want to build your own portfolio project and become a Python and Django developer, I’d suggest checking out client testimonials here and reaching out to me.

I go very deep and always explain all the steps in detail with specific videos and documents for my clients. So the post here is just a small example of how I could help you out.

Also, I always answer all client questions along the way.. but enough of talking, let’s get into the code.
