How to become a Python/PostgreSQL developer?

Python is a general-purpose language known for its versatility when compared to other traditional programming languages. It is used widely for applications such as web development, machine learning, game development, and IoT coding. Basically, Python can be used in the development of any application that requires data processing and mathematical computations.

Postgres is a database management system that integrates aspects of both open-source PostgreSQL and Berkeley DB. With this hybrid approach, Postgres provides an advanced and reliable platform for handling complex data. It comes with a variety of data models, including user-defined types and text arrays; it also has full-text search capabilities and supports stored procedures. PostgreSQL can be scaled up and down, replicating through transaction logs. It provides more than 160 free functions.

What is the scope of Python/PostgreSQL development?

Python is a high-level, multi-paradigm programming language that has the functionalities of conventional programming languages such as C, C ++, and Java. Python's popularity also means that Python developers are in high demand, not only because the language is so popular and widely used, but mainly because Python has evolved into a solution in a variety of fields, ranging from web applications to data science and machine learning.

PostgreSQL is a powerful and ubiquitous open-source database available on all the major cloud providers, various operating systems, and virtualization platforms. In addition, it is supported by companies providing support and users can also support it themselves.

What are the roles and responsibilities of a Python/PostgreSQL developer?

Python developers typically work on the server-side, either writing logic or developing the platform. For instance, they may develop websites or applications that meet user needs and populate them with data from a Python application. They also integrate front-end development with Python and support front-end developers by integrating their work with the Python application.

PostgreSQL is used by both developers and publishers to develop software. It might be surprising to know that more than 1,000 companies use PostgreSQL for consumer purposes. A PostgreSQL cloud database developer knows how to build and design efficient API's and customize datasets to support a cloud platform.

The roles and responsibilities of a Python/PostgreSQL developer:

  • Utilize Python code to construct scalable application architectures
  • Identify and develop efficient systems, databases, UIs, and web services
  • Identify areas where existing software solutions can be improved
  • Improve the functionality of the applications by performing multiple unit tests
  • Provide reliable, low-latency, and high-performance applications
  • Integrate best security practices into the development process
  • Explore, learn, and apply emerging technologies, best design practices, and usability patterns to your development process
  • Provide technical solutions to meet business needs
  • Develop database code in collaboration with product managers, data analysts, and developers
  • Take care of the database code and structures' reliability, authenticity, and quality

How to become a Python/PostgreSQL developer?

These days, becoming a Python/PostgreSQL developer is a huge market and preference among all IT professionals. It's not as difficult as it sounds to become a Python/PostgreSQL developer. Taking college-level courses or earning a degree/diploma in computer science is the most obvious and well-known path to becoming a Python/PostgreSQL developer.

It should be noted, however, that you do not need a computer science degree to become a Python/PostgreSQL developer. All you need is an understanding of Python/PostgreSQL development concepts and a command of the respective programming language.

Now, let's look at the skills and methods you'll need to master in order to become a successful Python/PostgreSQL developer:

Skills required to become a Python/PostgreSQL developer

The first step is to learn the fundamental skills that will enable you to land a high-paying job as a Python/PostgreSQL developer. Let's go over what you should be aware of.

1. PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL is a powerful and ubiquitous open source database available on all the major cloud providers, various operating systems, and virtualization platforms. In addition, it is supported by companies providing support and users can also support it themselves.

2. SQL

SQL (or Structured Query Language) is a programming language designed for managing data, namely, the retrieval, manipulation, and storage of data in relational database management systems. So called because the language is structured, it is the most widely used language of its kind. SQL commands are used to perform various tasks, such as inserting data into a database or updating its contents. Most programming tools support SQL, nevertheless, many developers would rather work within an existing data set than go through the extra time spent on manipulating that data manually.

3. Python frameworks

Python frameworks are specifically designed to make developing applications easier by eliminating the need to create low-level components like sockets, protocols, or threads. One of the most popular frameworks is Django. Flask, Web2Py, Bottle, and several other frameworks are also available. Python frameworks can save you time because they eliminate the need to write code that you will inevitably have to debug.

4. Python libraries

Python has a large and diverse library of open-source packages available, as evidenced by the Python Package Index. Each package can be downloaded and installed individually, allowing Python developers to create applications tailored to their needs. This flexibility allows programmers to avoid reinventing the wheel when creating software for a specific purpose. Programming using Python libraries is easier than starting from scratch, as the majority of the code will already be written, minimizing redundancy.


JSON is a data-interchange format and is used for transferring data in web applications. JSON can be used as a lightweight alternative to XML and is useful for sharing information including audio, video and so on. Because of its versatility, JSON has become the standard format to exchange information between different platforms, devices and applications. When working with web APIs, using JSON representation instead of XML helps keep things simple since you have to deal with fewer characters and operations.

6. Version control

Version control systems (VCS) help software engineers to develop code, because they allow a complex history of the development process to be controlled and managed. These systems are used by software developers of all levels in all types of businesses, and it is one of the most important job skills for software engineers at all levels regardless of how long ago you were introduced to them for the first time. This is because version control is a crucial part of developing software, and it lays the foundation for a variety of businesses to operate properly.
