This is going to be a long session of python programming. From this session, we are going to learn about basic python syntax and structures and then move on to the advanced topics. I have divided python into eight different topics. In this blog, we will take a look at the first two pieces. I have tried to make this session as simple as possible and as much interactive as I could. So, what are we waiting for? Let's dive in! Feel free to comment on any part you find difficult.
