What Is The Order To Learn Python?

Years ago, when I first got into learning Python (while I was still a QA engineer) I wasn’t sure about the order in which I should learn Python. So, what is the order to learn Python? Let’s look into the most common topics and questions people ask when it comes to learning Python properly.

What Is The Order To Learn Python?

As a Python developer with 7+ years of experience, I can say that it’s important for you as a beginner to learn Python in a specific order.

Start with the basic concepts of programming, such as the following:

  • Variables
  • Data types
  • Loops
  • Control structures

These will give you a solid foundation and understanding of fundamentals. From there, you can move on to:
