Do You Know Your Earning Potential as a Python Developer?
Let's Talk Data
Here are the latest salary data:
- Most* of the Python back-end developers with 2 years experience earn over $105,000
- Most* Data Scientist with 2 years experience earn over $112,000
* Most means 75%. This means at least 25% developers earn more than this! [Source]
Even developers with no experience earn a lot, but more on that in a moment
Don’t have a degree? Don’t have any experience?
Most Python developers with no prior experience and not even a bachelors degree get $92,000
The only hurdle is learning Python and then selling yourself as someone who can actually be an asset to the company.
Learning Python and getting a job is not that hard!
How about writing a program that will monitor a product on a online shopping sites for price fluctuations and alert you when the price drops.
What do you think how difficult would this be.
Here is the Reality
The biggest problem with most Python courses is that they are dull, boring, and talk about lot of theory first.
Sure, learning theory and the differences between binary search and linear search is necessary, but if that is what you learn first, you would never learn Python.
So when it comes to actually writing code for something useful, you have already spent months on completely useless things, learnt things that you would probably never use.
Now Imagine This
What if I told you that you would be creating this program in the first hour of your lesson?
This concept is called Web Scraping.
If you talk to someone who knows Python, they will stop you right there and tell you the learn the basics first.
But the approach that we have taken is different. In only an hour, you would have your first web scraper up and running.
