Practical Python programming for Non-Geeks

An article written by Al Sweigart , published in opensource.com shares some tips for non-engineers for getting their hands on python programming language.


"Learn to code" is the new mantra for the 21st century. What’s often lost in that statement is exactly what makes programming so useful if you’re not planning to switch careers and become a software engineer. Just because we’re surrounded by computers doesn’t mean the average person needs to be able to reprogram their smart fridge.

But programming skills can help solve uncommon, user-specific problems. Office workers, students, administrators, and anyone who uses a computer has encountered tedious tasks. Maybe they need to rename a few hundred files. Perhaps they need to send out notifications each time a particular website updates. Or maybe they need to copy several hundred rows from an Excel spreadsheet into a webform.
