Boost your Career with Python Programming Language

Published on 12 December 18

Honestly, I smile every time I hunker down with an editor window in front of me and carefully chisel out some beautiful, PEP 8 compliant code…

I regard Python’s community as one of the most welcoming and encouraging in all of technology. And companies are itching to hire competent Pythonistas for all kinds of roles.

Now, here’s a thought experiment for you:

Suppose tackling problems with Python was part of your day job. Something you’d get paid for. A career.

How would that change your life?

For me it felt like a huge personal achievement when I got my first paycheck for working full-time on a Python project. I loved the opportunity to apply a language that I previously only used as a hobby in my spare time.

Maybe you’re just starting out and you’re learning how to program by yourself or through a university program.

Or maybe you’re already an established software developer—but you crave to switch to a Python job.

If this sounds like you, I’d love to help you out.

I know making the leap from “passionate hobbyist” to professional Python dev is NOT easy:

What skills are even expected from a good Python developer?

Do you need to learn Django in order to get a job programming in Python?

What if you want to get into Data Science or Test Automation?

At what point should you feel experienced enough to start a career with Python?

What does a typical day look like for a developer in the office?

What’s the minimum skillset you should have before starting to look for employment?

Do you need a Computer Science degree? Are code bootcamps worth it?

Can you get a remote job as a junior-level developer?

These are all questions or variations of questions that hit my email inbox, my Twitter account, or came up in some of the 1-on-1 coaching calls I did over the last few months.
