Re: Any other Python noobies on here?

Although that book wasn't out when I was hitting my learning wall I will second Al Sweigart as a good resource. His prior books can be found on. https://inventwithpython.com/ I have actually seen these before and they look pretty cool! At the moment I have paid for a month of Codecademy Pro, which ...

Re: Struggling a bit with Python

So little bit of an update - I actually signed up to one month of Codecademy Pro, as they have project and quizs etc plus an 8 hour+ project after the course. Looks pretty good so far, so going through this now, probably coming up to half way through now :)

Re: Struggling a bit with Python

Just kind of feeling a bit stupid to be honest! One of my sisters (in grad school at the time) used to say, "The more I learn, the dumber I get." Shorthand for the realization that the body of human knowledge is vast and mastering even a narrow portion of it can be difficult. Wise words, because I ...

Re: Struggling a bit with Python

Sounds like a typical learning curve, it happens to us all. Do you have a raspberry pi to practice on? Start simple and practice lots. Tutorials can be a bit dry some times. I do indeed mate I have both a Pi 2 and a B+. I cant help but feel stupid about it, it is quite demoralizing. Do you think I ...

Struggling a bit with Python

Hello guys and gals, Feel a bit stupid to be honest writing this post. But I am honestly struggling a bit to get my head around some of Python. I am going through a course my company told me to do, on Coursera, which is the following (in case anyone is interested): https://www.coursera.org/learn/int...

Project Ideas for someone learning Python

Hey guys.

I was wonder if anyone had any project ideas for someone who wants to learn Python.

Anything that would make Python more easy to understand or make learning productive through having a goal would be awesome:)

Likewise any resources you guys know would be nice to:)

Thanks for the help

Java Resources for Absolute Beginners

Hello guys and gals, How abouts did you all get into learning how to program and understand Java? Personally I think the sheer amount of resources available can make it difficult to actually start learning. So because of that, lets try build a good list etc of documentation or tutorials, videos etc ...

Learning any language first is never time wasted. You don't need to jump into the deep end immediately without any prior knowledge, and that knowledge can easily be acquired on a PI.
