What next after learning Python ?

Learning  a new programming language is like getting a new powerful Motorcycle. You have that shiny new machine which is a work of art and is powerful like a beast. What you do with it? You ride it for a couple of days at neck break speed tackle on a few twisties seek attention of a few people my twisting the hell out of the throttle and then after a few days you just keep it in your garage where it sits idle for a couple of months or years till the time when you again get in the mood to take your old love for a whirl. Well, I don’t do that with my motorcycle or my programming skills and I would suggest that you don’t do it either. Programming is a lot like acquiring a new motorcycle skill, the more you use it responsibly the more mastery you get in it.
Many time I see people learning a programing language and then just keep it in their mind vault for months or years without using it sometimes it’s out of being clueless as to where to implement the newfound skills and at times it’s due to pure laziness. If it’s out of the latter then I can’t help you but if it’s because you are clueless as to how to use it then I am here to take your hand and show you the way or at least suggest you some.
  • The only mantra is to Learn more and keep exploring more.
  • Create a blog and share with others what you have learned so that people can learn from you and you can learn from them.
  • Implement your knowledge into some practical project on a personal or professional workspace. I am a software test engineer by profession and I have actually implemented my python knowledge to create a framework which helped us to reduce our testing effort by almost 50%. While doing that I learned more as I faced challenges and as I progressed towards resolving those challenges. You may also create a blog or website and put your knowledge to public so that you can actually contribute to the community from which you have acquired the knowledge.
  • I run a blog Thecodingproject where I regularly post topics/articles related to python and by doing this I actually learn something new every time since I have to research a topic myself before creating an article and posting it in my blog.
That’s about it all the more you use your skills the more you will enhance it and while you are on your journey to sharpen your new Jedi force you also give some back to the community from which you acquired the skill in the first place.

SO, folks this was all for this week but more stuffs are coming your way next week, til then happy coding.

How To Install Tensorflow On Windows

Why I am writing this tutorial ?
Recently I have started learning machine learning specifically DeepLearning for one of my pet projects, and during this quest of mine I wanted to learn TensorFlow library which is developed by Google. Learning is one thing but first I needed to install the library, but there was this problem which I faced during the installation. I am using Anaconda as my package manager and trying to install the Tensorflow library on my work computer which is behind a proxy, installing directly from the anaconda cloud while behind a proxy always displayed a proxy error.

How did I resolve the issue? Well this is exactly what I am going to write down in the below tutorial. The Steps To Follow
Before we get all cosy with this short tutorial on Tensorflow installation, let me tell you that
this tutorial is on the assumption that you have already installed Anaconda on your machine and you know at least a few basic things or two about python.
If you want to learn basic pyt…

While Loop in python : How to become a Python Jedi - Beginners Python Programming Tutorial - Part 6

Welcome back friends to another post on TheCodingProject and we are back with the sixth chapter of the Beginner Python programming tutorial - How to become a python Jedi. This time we are going to learn how to use while loop in python.
The While Loop statement? In Python Programming, There are 3 types of loops →
While loop For loop Nested loops
Now to get into some action→
Let’s consider that two groups of aliens have landed on earth  out of these two one of the group is good & the other are the bad guys. The govt. Has given you the task of designing a system that takes in input from different eyewitnesses & then classify that whether the aliens that these eyewitnesses encounter are the good guys or bad guys.

Copy & paste the above code in your editor and run this code. What do you get ? When the input is Autobots it matches the condition aliens == "Autobots" & it enters the loop to prints the statement pointed by the print method.
We can also use negative conditions…

For Loop in python 3 : How to become a Python Jedi - Beginners Python Programming Tutorial - Part 7

I am back again with another part in the beginner python programming tutorial series. We will continue with "Loops" but this time we are going to learn how to use for loop in python 3. 

Difference between For loop and While Loop
A "For Loop" and "While Loop" have a common connection that both are looping statement, but major difference is that unlike while loop, a for loop gets executed a specified number of times.

We can break down the For loop into the following components(Refer to the for loop flow chart below).
for keywordvariable namecall to the range functioncolon operatorclause or block of code Hovering over the flow-chart
The above flow-chart is..well horrible I know, but I make my own drawings because I can't afford an artist. So, bear with me. In the above flowchart is a very basicy, laymanish representation of a for loop. The decision box contains the For statement along-with it's soulmate i.e the Range function. As long as the variable I …
