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 entering the while loop. Copy and paste the below code in your editor and run it→












As you can see the condition aliens is not "Autobots" resolves to False when the user inputs a wrong condition & the control enters the loop and print the statement when a false condition is returned.

Now let’s make our system a bit more robust by adding some extra checks into it. We shall insert an if statement inside our while loop. In the version below if user gives the first input as Decepticons then the control enters the loop & prompts user for second input. Again if the input is Megatron then the control enters the if condition to print the last statement.




So, folks this was all for this week but we shall return with another chapter of this tutorial with some new concepts to learn.

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…

What I learned from writing a guest post

Recently I wrote a python tutorial for Datacamp, while writing this tutorial I learned a couple of things which I am going to share with you right here in my blog post. May be you can use my experiences in your own endeavours as a writer.
IdeaThe first step is idea generation. You can either search through any previous topics in your blog post if you have one or you can go through your past learning, experiences or any problem statement that you might have gone through and you will find that while doing that you can get tons of ideas to start your article. If you fall short of ideas then you can ask for help from may be your social media followings your friends or your family, for example I asked the people at Datacamp themselves and they suggested me a couple of topics which got me started on the right note. So, be prompt to ask for help and you will be surprised how easily you can crowd-source ideas and there's nothing wrong in it.

Encountering The Python
What is Python? As per Wikipedia “Python is a widely used high-level, general-purpose, interpreted, dynamic programming language.” Python is an open source programming language which was conceived in the late 1980s and its implementation began in December 1989 by Guido van Rossum (more on it here).
What kind of programing language?To give a better idea let's look at the below mentioned summary-
High level language- Python is a high-level language because it provides strong “abstraction”.Interpreted - Python is an Interpreted language because it does not run on a compiler.Dynamically typed language - Python is dynamically typed because in python every variable is bound to an object.Why should I learn Python?Python is a very powerful programming language, secondly it's easier to learn and since it's interpreted language the code is easier to understand. Lastly there is a huge community supporting Python so if you get stuck anywhere lot's of help are a…
