The python Programming Language is one of the most sought for languages today. Reason is because it can be used for the following:
1. Web Development
2. Game development
3. Desktop Application
4. Android Development
5. Data Science/ Deep Learning/ Machine Learning

Understand how to prepare yourself for the python journey or easy transition if you are migrating from another language to python

following, thank you so much for this.

btw, I'm finding it hard to download the Python extension on VS Code, it keeps saying "we cannot connect to the Extensions Marketplace at this time, please try again later."

is there anyway around this??

You should check your network connection, or check if you are using a vpn or something..
Otherwise, you can try connecting to another network.. It should work fine

TUPLES IN PYTHON



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4pN_gfUw4Q

Tuples are immutable data structures in Python.

Tuples cannot be changed after they are created, hence it has the immutability feature.
Tuples are created using () or the tuple function
a = (1,2,3,4,5,6)
b = [5,6,4,7,3,2]
c = tuple(b)
#converts the list b to a tuple

Sets are used to create values without repetition or duplication
It is also created just like dictionary using {} but unlike dictionaries, it does not return key value pairs.

INSTALLATION AND SETUP FOR ANDROID, MAC, AND WINDOWS



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfU3B7hy4Bs

Before we begin our journey into the exciting world of python, we need to get a couple of things set up. This would help us write our code effectively and enhance debugging. We will need to download some software and install them on our machines to get started.
Some of the softwares we need to install are: the python compiler, a text editor preferably Visual Studio Code, Git Bash for windows users and Pydroid 3 for Android Users.

The sections shows how u can correctly install them:

Mac Installation: 0:00
Android Installation: 8:24
Windows Installation: 10:31

This is good to know that you are providing a 30 days tutorials for beginners, and this is a piece of Good news for all of us that we can start learning and follow the instruction given by you to become python programmer. but here I am going to suggest even after learning programming or programming syntax you are not becoming a Pro programmer, So for 30 days of Code visit to HackerRank 30 Days of Code solutions https://www.programmingwithbasics.com/p/hackerrank-30-days-of-code-solutions.html for pro programming you have to be practice and practice more and more So here is the list of Programming Problems with logic and solution. https://www.programmingwithbasics.com/p/list-cpp-language-programs.html. I am sure after this your going to create a big Projects Like this one. Apply this Project logic in Python: Casino Game in C++ https://www.programmingwithbasics.com/2016/03/c-program-for-casino-game-number.html or Number Guessing Program in C++ [img]https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-GCyIzzFcgsA/Wc7O5jlLK4I/AAAAAAAAC5Q/v34rIGHe0Q00k6TEAt5ulH2tGTHi3O90gCLcBGAs/s640/casino1.PNG[/img].

FUNCTIONS IN PYTHON



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjVhB-QQMFk

Functions are blocks of code that are designed to do one specific job
If you need to perform that task multiple times throughout your program, you don't need to type all the code for the same task again and again
You just call the function dedicated to handling that task, and the call tells python to run the code inside the function

def greet_user():
"""Display a simple greeting"""
print("Hello!" )

greet_user()
# Hello!
