Six rows of curved, razor-sharp teeth help pythons seize their unlucky prey, which they then kill via constriction in a matter of minutes. That’s why we recommend cozying up to Python instead — note the uppercase P — which isn’t a reptile at all, but a 30-year-old general-purpose programming language.
Besides being far more user-friendly (to say the least) than the eponymous serpents, Python is remarkably versatile, relatively easy to learn, and boasts great support communities and libraries. At present, it’s the most in-demand programming language across the job search websites LinkedIn, Indeed, SimplyHired, Monster, and AngelList, according to one data scientist’s analysis, making it a great technical skill to add to your résumé right now.
For a limited time, the Mashable Shop is making it easy to do just that by offering a ridiculous sale on the 10-part Python Master Class Bundle. Featuring beginner-friendly classes on data visualization and analysis with Python, its machine learning applications, back-end web development, web-scraping, and more, the bundle is a stellar education at a great price: whatever you feel like paying.
Here’s how the deal works: Pop over to the Mashable Shop and name your price. If you beat the average, you’ll receive the collection of all ten courses (a $1,066 value). Want to pay just $1? That’s totally fine, too — if you choose to pay anything less than the average, you’ll still take home something great.
