This is for my colleague …

Has done BCA. He has 10+ years experience in JAVA

Needs to shift and start learning PYTHON.

1) Is it worth ?
2) Best places to learn ?
3) Best certifications ?

Thankyou

Yes python is probably the easiest language to learn and work in
Dont pay money for courses. A lot of free tutorials and coding sites are there
Try coursera or edX and use financial aid.

Google also has its own practice/learning set for python too.

Happy coding!

Firstly 10+ years of exp. is huge if one is strong with Java then firstly they must try switching the job in similar work as done before !
Moreover python is vastly used language from Web D to ML python is used !
If one really want to learn python they must start from scratch ! Take any complete course on udemy eg : beginner to advance or the complete bootcamp etc !
Learn the basics of python and then according to the interest move ahead like if one want to be in field of data analytics then buy a course oriented for the same !
As such I don’t feel any need for certifications !
It’s all about your knowledge n skills, if you have skills interviewer won’t ask you for certifications but even if you have 4-5 certifications but you can’t answer in interview that’s of no use.
Tip : Do some good and unique projects while learning !
Now a days ppls are doing great projects using image processing!
Keep working on that along with the course it will help strengthening your CV.

Switching fields is not easy. Your colleague has to restart the career from scratch. He/she cannot expect to get the benefits of 10 years of experience (in terms of position and pay both) in the new job. He/she will be treated like a fresher. Is he/she ready to bear this?

2.8 lakh is a big amount so make sure you are getting a proper certificate from some recognized institution/university or some industry standard professional certification(like microsoft or oracle certified).

10 years experience in java and do not know where to learn python is very confusing and asking the same in deals forum is more confusing.

OP, no offence, but are you hard code java developer or kind of devops?

nowadays data scientists are losing the jobs and demand is decreasing for people with no experience (every decent company asks for 5 years+ exp.). Better to go for full stack.

Thanks for your views.
he has already joined it in upgrad.

But I wondered why it’s so costly and asked here to know if it’s really worth.

If you’re working professional then year end rating it will make difference and if your planning goto US then also it will help you

OP’s friend should know the difference between the below math scenarios:
1×1×1x1=1
1+1+1+1=4

He is supposed to follow the later one 1+1+1+1=4 to get good career growth.

Hint: He is supposed to move up rather than sliding sideways.

Haha.. That’s a good logic.
