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.

This year is already shaping up to be a big one for Google, with its new (and abundant) updates to the voice-activated Google Assistant creating a Shamu-sized splash at CES 2019. Among these upgrades are a new Interpreter mode that translates languages in real-time, better punctuation and auto-reply features, and even Google Maps integration. (Watch out, Alexa.)

It should go without saying that now’s a great time to snag a Google Assistant-supported device so you can take advantage of all these cutting-edge upgrades. That’s why we’re offering our readers a deal on the Onkyo VC-GX30, a Google Assistant-compatible smart speaker that’s both powerful and affordable.

Crafted from glossy, non-resonant wood, each speaker comes with built-in Google Assistant that can be either paired with compliant devices for home automation, or told to play the music of your choice. Simply give it a command to start listening to your audio in rich, clear sound courtesy of its custom amp and long-throw woofer. 

A $299 value, you can snag a Onkyo VC-GX30 Smart Speaker for just $94.99 — a 68% savings — when you visit the Mashable Shop.

If you’re a creative with an impressive portfolio or a business owner selling a medley of high-demand products, but you don’t have a legitimate website to show for it — do you really exist?

In our increasingly digital world, it’s almost a requirement that you have a functioning website to establish your existence and publicize your goods and services to the rest of humanity. But the concept of building a website sounds time-consuming, expensive, and simply put: hard.

But platforms like Page Builder Pro are popping up to offer a fuss-free and cost-effective way to assemble the site of your dreams without any sleepless nights. If you’ve never written a line of code in your life or find website-building platforms like Squarespace too costly, you’ll like the fact that you can build a site with Page Builder for under $40.

Thanks to its intuitive, non-technical interface, people with absolutely zero coding experience should find website creation with Page Builder a piece of cake. Take your pick from their collection of professionally-designed themes to start, and use the built-in editor to customize the site to your liking.

You can incorporate custom popups, online chat, and other useful features in a matter of clicks, but you can also create a design element from scratch if you fancy. What’s most impressive is that all templates are pre-optimized for mobile and SEO, which makes your website appeal more to visitors without you having to do or pay anything.

A lifetime subscription to Page Builder Pro usually costs $745, but you can get it today for $39 — a savings of a whopping 94%.

Gym attendance always spikes this time of year as people attempt to make good on their New Year’s resolutions to get healthier. But you know what we should *really* be doing instead? Brushing our teeth more often. 

Maintaining good dental hygiene does your whole body good. Besides freshening your breath and warding off tooth decay, giving your pearly whites a good scrubbin’ on the regular may help to decrease your risk of stroke, heart attack, and other serious health problems. (And it’s far easier to commit to than a gym membership.)

That’s why it may be time to snag a CleanSonic Ultra Electric Whitening Toothbrush, now on sale in the Mashable Shop. At 35,000 vibrations per minute, this nifty electric brush removes ten times more plaque than a traditional toothbrush and improves your gum health in as little as one week.

It features three different modes — soft, whiten, and cleaning — for a customized brushing experience that’ll keep your mouth in tip-top shape. Plus, it includes a built-in LCD display that tells you when to change your brush’s head when it begins to show signs of wear and tear.

A $99.99 value, you can score a CleanSonic Ultra Electric Whitening Toothbrush and four spare brush heads for just $41.99 — a fraction of the cost of one of those pricey Sonicare models.

In terms of active users, virtual reality is predicted to be as big as Netflix by 2022. That makes it all the more surprising that Apple — typically a trailblazer when it comes to digital imaging — has yet to add 360-video capabilities to its iPhones. For all of the features it’s packed into the iPhone XR and XS, it couldn’t squeeze in a spherical mode? Tsk tsk. 

Fortunately, the Mashable Shop is here to pick up where Tim Cook left off. To quote Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter: Partner, let us upgrade you.

For just the next few days, we’re having a sale on two awesome Insta360 gadgets that turn iOS devices into 360-degree 4K cameras. The first is the Insta360 ONE, a pocket-sized “action camera” that’s compatible with both iPhones and iPads.

Simply plug the ONE into your device’s Lightning port to turn it into a tool with which you can shoot, share, and live-stream stunning 360-degree footage in 4K. It’s equipped with options to film hyperlapses and slow-motion “bullet time” shots, and boasts “FlowState” and SmartTrack technologies for ridiculously smooth, stable footage. 

You can even use it to capture mid-air orbiting footage: just hook it up to the included string and let ‘er fly. Each ONE is easily controlled with Bluetooth, your iPhone, or as a handheld device, and comes with a companion app on which you can make professional-quality edits.

Each ONE is easily controlled with Bluetooth, your iPhone, or as a handheld device, and comes with a companion app on which you can make professional-quality edits. You’ll find it on sale for just $249, a savings of 16% off its original price of $299.

Insta360’s second offering comes in the form of the Nano S camera for iPhones. With just a single point and shoot on your part, its FreeCapture tool takes smooth footage of your surroundings, which you can later piece together to create the ultimate shots. Said shots can then be easily shared on social media or via text, again with just the touch of a single button.

The Nano S is arguably the simplest way to capture and share a real-time view of your world, and it’s currently on sale for just $199 — 16% off its original price of $239.
