Python has been in talks for the last few years. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced developer, people are moving towards Python. It is the most common language to be seen on resumes. Python is a versatile, popular, easy, and most importantly, in-demand programming language. So, if you’re planning to learn Python, why not start with some amazing projects which will not only improve your concepts but also help you to have well practical knowledge.

In this article, we’ll discuss some beginner-friendly Python projects to make your learning smooth and hassle-free. I’ll try to link down the source code of each project also. Let’s get started!!

  1.  Hangman Game

The very popular and basic Python project, The Hangman Game. It will give you the idea about how to take inputs, how the data type is used and you will also get familiar with loop concepts and usage of built-in modules.

In this game, few words are stored and the interpreter selects one of the words randomly. The user is asked to guess the characters of the word. If the user guesses correctly and the word contains that character, it will be shown in the output with the correct placement of the particular letter in place of the dash (‘_’) else, it will ask the user to guess the character again and the number of attempts to guess the whole word could choose accordingly (generally there are 8-10 attempts).

  1. Python story Generator

If you’re absolutely new to Python and just learning basic fundamentals of it then, this is the project to get started. A very basic, easy, and simple Python Project which gives randomly made sentences or phrases as output using the words which are already stored in the program. You can choose the categories to make the list of words, for every category there is a different list (it totally depends on 

you, how you want to proceed with your one-line stories, and how many categories you want to add to make it more creative).

  1. Junk File Organizer

This is my personal favorite Python project because it is actually useful in daily life. So basically, we all have a folder where all the files are piled up and sometimes it becomes confusing to find a particular file. It is difficult to segregate and search for a particular file. There comes this life-saving, simple Python project which will automatically segregate all the files into appropriate folders and removes all the empty and useless files. You just need to paste and run this project in the same directory where you want to organize the files and the job is done.

This project will cover concepts like try and except, few modules and you will learn to access directories and paths through Python. It is one of the best beginner’s project.

  1. Random Password Generator

It’s always good to use a strong password with a combination of letters, numbers, and special symbols with a fixed minimum length. This project does create these kinds of strong passwords randomly by selecting the characters from the stored letters, numbers, and symbols. You can customize the way you want password to be like how many special symbols should be there or where you want them to be.

It is also one of the most basic Python projects covering topics like loops, data types, taking inputs, and providing outputs. The passwords generated by the program are totally random and very difficult to remember which makes it more usable as security is high.

  1.  Real-Time Currency Converter

As the name suggests, you can convert one currency into another but there are two ways to do the same. 

First, by taking the currency and amount as input using data types (numbers and strings) and provide the converted currency as output. 

Second, by taking the project to a level up and introducing GUI ( Graphical User Interface) into it. To introduce GUI, you need to use any GUI Python library. Tkinter is the easiest and commonly used Python GUI library.

To make it a real-time Currency converter, an URL link will be added in the program to covert the currencies according to the time and a library will be added to get the URL and make it work. This Python project can be added to your resume if you’re a beginner.

  1. Calculator

Once you are done with the most basic projects and trying to get a level up then you need to try this Python Calculator. It is a very popular project to get started with Python GUI (Graphical User Interface). I would advise using Tkinter for GUI in the beginning as it is easy to use and understand.

The calculator can have all the basic operations or you can add some advanced operations also.

In this project, you will learn to implement the User interface, maths modules, mapping of variables and functions. This simple project is a whole package to learn some really amazing concepts of Python altogether.

The GUI of the calculator can also be customized, you can even make a clone your phone’s calculator or design your own calculator.

Here’s a link to get started with the project: Calculator

  1. Tic Tac Toe

If you are comfortable with basic GUI functions such as buttons and grid. Try the very popular game Tic Tac Toe which can be customized according to the needs. If there are two users, they can play the game with each other on the screen or if there is only one user then you can also make an automatic Tic Tac Toe game which will run after the user has played on her/his chance. Here, the two opponents are represented by “X” and “O” and both players acquire one box in one given chance by marking it by “X” or “O”. To win the game, a player has to get three boxes marked by her/his symbol in a row, column, or diagonally.

You can also try out different games such as  Rock Paper Scissors or make your own puzzle or memory games.

So, above are some really cool beginners friendly Python projects which can definitely give a good base about the fundamentals and implementation as well as an idea about how the modules and libraries work in Python Programming. I hope this article helps you in some way and makes your learning easier. Once, you are done with these projects we will move a step further and try some intermediate-level Python projects.

Let me know if you want an article on a specific topic or if you need more ideas for projects and if you have any queries related to any project, write back in the comment section.

Till then, happy coding!
