If you have basic programming skills and a desire to learn, consider enrolling yourself in a Python Certificate program.  If you’ve spent any time on the Internet, you’ve interacted with Python. Many well-known organizations use Python for programming their flagship products, including Google, Yahoo!, Amazon, Wikipedia, Facebook, Instagram, Spotify and Reddit.

Python is a popular, high-level programming language that has been in active development for about 30 years. Currently, the TIOBE Index, a programming community measure of the popularity of programming languages, ranks Python as the world’s third-most-popular programming language behind Java (1) and C (2).  From a community perspective, Python is growing in popularity.

Programmers increasingly prefer Python for tasks like string manipulation and searching, and also because Python manages memory usage better than Java.  It offers a standard application programming interface (API). It also works well with many popular web programming frameworks.

Python is popular among organizations like NASA and CERN, which have complex scientific and mathematical computing needs. It has also found an audience among users with 3-D modeling and intensive graphics-rendering needs, like game development and AI/machine learning. It is currently embedded in a number of graphics and animation packages, and can be used to write scripts in ArcGIS, a propriety geographic information system.

Python programmers are highly employable, and demand for Python programming skills far out-paces the number of available Python programmers.  For someone who already has basic prior experience in any programming language, Python is easy to learn.  In addition, a Python certificate can translate into full-time employment for entry-level Python developers and they can earn a starting salary of up to $70,000.

Because demand for Python programming skills is so high, employers want to know that prospective hires actually have the skills they’re looking for.  One way to demonstrate your competence in Python programming is to earn a Python certificate.
