Help Us Deliver High-Quality Python Tutorials and Articles for You and the Entire Python Community

Real Python Logo

Real Python brings you free, book-quality tutorials and in-depth articles about Python programming every single week.

Everyone on our editorial team gets paid for their work—from our authors, to our editors and proof readers, our designers, community team, and web developers.

I (Dan Bader) also work on the site full-time as its editor-in-chief and main developer.

My goal is to grow Real Python into the “New Yorker Magazine of Python Programming”—

Think detailed, long-form, and well-researched content for Pythonistas like you, delivered with an artistic touch.

We take great care in our writing and how we present our tutorials, so you can grow your Python skills and your programming career—and have fun doing it.

This is a true passion project.

We do not believe in spammy ad banners from the big advertising networks. We don’t secretly mine Bitcoin in your browser to cover our hosting costs…

And unlike many other publications, we haven’t put up a paywall—we want to keep our educational content as open as we can.

Instead, we ask for your honest support if you value our content.
