Python is one of the most versatile and fastest-growing programming languages in the world, which translates to a thriving and fast-growing job market.
Python is a very popular open-source platform, which means it is available in the public domain for anyone to use. Python is a high-level language that is very flexible and adaptable, allowing users to modify and create their own unique versions to do specific tasks. Python is frequently used to create algorithms for sorting through and analysing huge amounts of data collected by businesses and organisations across the world. It is particularly prevalent because it is easy to use and portable.
Primarily, Python Developers code, design and deploy applications in Python. They may also be responsible for debugging code, creating systems capable of integrating etc. As represented by the aforementioned diverse job titles, Python Development is not an isolated role with singular objectives; instead typically relating to the world of Big Data. Day to day, a Python Developer could work with data collection, providing key insights to decision-makers, web development or scripting, or designing a framework for new code, building new tools and creating websites.
Python code is more like ‘human language’ than code written to control machines and can be converted into machine code through ‘interpreter software’. Python code can be moved between projects and organisations even if different hardware is used which has huge potential for efficiency and collaboration. Aside from the simple syntax, core strengths of Python include powerful libraries and support from other users, as Python integrates well with other open-source platforms used in Big Data like Spark, Hadoop etc.
The powerful libraries that exist within Python offer key extensions to functionality that can be created in programmes written in Python. This means Python can create powerful, versatile tools and algorithms designed at manipulating large volumes of data that come with Big Data initiatives. Therefore, Python is great for creating scalable systems and has been used in much of the back end data processing functions of Google, Youtube and Facebook.
The world of Python development does not purely consist of developing applications in Python. Python Developer roles vary greatly depending on a number of factors, with Python Web Developer, Software Engineer, Automation Test Engineer, Data Analyst, Data Scientist and Machine Learning Engineer roles all incorporating aspects of Python Development. With advances in modern technology, these roles are all growing exponentially.
Job prospects for an accomplished Python Developer are vast. With strong skills in Python, you can find opportunities in web development, data science, machine learning, web scraping and more.
