Do I need to learn Python if web development is interesting?

Christopher Haynes asked 9 months ago

I began to learn programming from the Python language, as it is recommended by many because of the relatively simple, but at the same time strictly syntax. But most jobs that require knowledge of Python are related to analytics and machine learning. But these areas are not interesting to me, and I don’t have the corresponding mathematical education to apply for such work. So, is it advisable to further explore Python, if the development of websites is closer to my interests? Maybe it was originally necessary to start learning HTML + CSS and JavaScript?

Python does not save you from having to learn html, css and javascript

Choose not according to recommendations, but according to which language is closer to you, for this you can familiarize yourself with several actual languages. You can start with Python.

General purpose languages ​​are very similar.
Programming skills are generally the same.
You sharpen your focus on choosing the “right” programming language.

Python for the web is quite suitable. Just need to search for jobs on Django. They are not as many as PHP, but if you have a head on your shoulders, you will not be left without work.
