Programming is important for speeding up processes as well as to automate, collect, manage, calculate, analyse processing of data and information accurately. People should program because it develops structured and creative thinking, and teaches persistence.

Python is one of the best languages to learn for the following reasons:

  • One of the easiest programming languages to learn.
  • It’s open source with a lot of documentation and online help.
  • It’s used by many big companies such as Google and Netflix.
  • It’s free.
