Why should you learn Python?
Python, an open-source programming language that’s been growing in popularity for over 20 years, is today used by thousands of companies to deliver efficient, and reliable software. Python tends to excel in more advanced fields like machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Open-source projects like Tensorflow and the Electrum Bitcoin wallet are written in Python, and as a result, the market for Python developers has been growing steadily. Backend web applications, CLI scripts, image classifiers, and DevOps tools are just some of the real-world applications being written in Python by major tech companies.
Stack Overflow’s 2020 report on Python:
$120,000 average salary
Growing in popularity — Most used language for AI and machine learning
Loved by coders — 3rd most loved language
We love Python because it is:
Simple & quick to learn — Python reads like English and lets you get to the meat of the logic faster
Modern — Python 3 is the latest version and it’s what we teach in all our courses
Attractive to employers — Python is still on the rise year over year with more and more open positions

Frequently Asked Questions
Interested in upgrading to get full access to our computer science courses, but unsure what that entails?
What’s the difference between Basic and Pro?
A Basic account is, well, basic. You can demo Pro features on the first 6 exercises of each course (such as our Python courses). But after that, if you’re on a Basic plan, you’ll only be able to read the course material and play in the code sandbox. You won’t get access to feedback on your code know if you got the right answers.
Qvault Pro has everything in Basic, plus all the advanced tools, content, solutions, and certifications that you need to make your learning faster.
A Pro account lets you practice much more efficiently by getting instant verification of all your code solutions. If you get stuck, you can use the “cheat” feature to take a look at the solution and quickly see what’s holding you up.
Additionally, one of the biggest benefits our Pro subscribers get is access to free certificates of completion when they finish a course. Showing off your work to employers is a quick way to get that high-paying tech job
