The internet is filled with great codes. They form the bedrock on which various infrastructures are built. Even the very platform you are reading this on is built with a dedication to creating great codes. While the average user isn’t going to take note of this, good developers, on the other hand, are always seeking to make their applications (and hence, their coding) better.
Text data the most common form of information on the Internet, whether it be reviews, tweets or web pages. Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a powerful technology that helps you derive immense value from that data. In this article, we will look at the most popular Python NLP libraries, their features, pros, cons, and use cases.
Django describes itself as "the web framework for perfectionists with deadlines". It was designed to help Python developers take applications from concept to completion as quickly as possible. Learn advantages and disadvantages of Django.

Up until relatively recently, digital transformation struggled to penetrate the real estate sector in any meaningful way.In this post we will review what are the trends in PropTech and how Python fits into PropTech startup development techstack.
In times when computer programing is becoming more and more accessible due to the growing number of coding schools, online resources and bootcamps, this question seems to go viral - which computer language should I learn first or which language should I choose for my use case. This situation is no different for Ruby and Python.
