With machine learning, e-commerce and other cutting-edge technologies here to stay, so too are their enabling languages. Python is perhaps the preeminent programming language, and mastering it offers attractive career options.
In this python tutorial, we’ll go over what makes Python so user-friendly before diving into some of the language’s concepts. We’ll also provide code snippets to demonstrate common, day-to-day programming practices.
In 2005, when the internet was still in its nascent stage, there were about 1 billion users around the world. In a single decade, that number doubled to reach 2 billion. Fast forward five short years to 2020 and there are 4.66 billion active internet users according to Statista.
As the fourth industrial revolution continues to flourish (and our internet usage stats suggest), technological innovation is not going to decline anytime soon.
That continued growth signifies that there will be even more available tech jobs on the market in 2021 and beyond. One of the best ways to snag one of those new openings is to upskill with an online course.
Have you heard about Python decorators? Not only do these special functions have a funny name, but their syntax differs from standard Python code (they attach to other functions through use of the @ sign).
No wonder many beginners avoid decorators at all costs! However, we’ve got good news for you. Decorating your functions isn’t as hard as it looks — and it results in cleaner, more modular programs with less boilerplate code.
The year 2020 has proven to be a time of both change and resilience. Due to the pandemic and stay-at-home orders issued globally, people had to change their lifestyles, adopt better eating habits, learn to work from home, and some even picked up a new skill — like coding.
The point is, regardless of if people learned to cook, create pivot tables in Excel, or program using a new computer language, we all learned something new.
This uptick of people using online learning platforms to help them gain knowledge and new skills in their downtime, made us wonder which online courses and Nanodegree programs our students liked the most.
After examining our Nanodegree programs and student feedback, we compiled a list of our top-rated Nanodegree programs for 2020, according to our global community of students.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact businesses, digital transformation has become a major buzzword — but some people struggle to define it. Just put “what is digital transformation” into Google and the responses will range anywhere from having an online presence in the form of a website to the complete rethinking of how organizations use technology.
While there is no definitive answer to this question, the meaning depends on how you plan to lay the foundation of digital transformation for your business. For now, let’s agree that it’s much more than just having a website, using a fancy CRM, or chatbots.
According to a recent business impact survey of the 373 IT professionals conducted by IDG Research, 59% of respondents said that there has been increased pressure for digital transformation post the pandemic.
As global businesses and enterprises try to adopt digital technologies, they grapple with the challenge of upskilling both their teams and themselves to be abreast of the latest trends in digitization.
To ensure that your business is creating a truly impactful digital transformation strategy, read on to learn how our Nanodegree programs can help you skill your employees in popular technologies and to scale your efforts.
