Hey guys and gals,

Didn't know where to post this, however if anyone has seen my previous post on the Python section. I am having a bit of a struggle learning Python.

So really just wanted to touch base with anyone else on here that is starting from the beginning on Python.
If that is you, how are you finding the language?
Struggling at all or have any advice?
What resources do you have (currently using a Coursera course and also Codeacademy)

Get in touch! :)

I've found Automate The Boring Stuff With Python a great beginners tutorial.

So how is your Python journey going?

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 so far has been pretty cool

When i was trying to learn to program stuff the most useful thing i found was a language quick reference ;

so for example if i was looking for what methods i can use on an array for example ,
i could find it in a moment & would not get *distracted* ogling @ the interwebs.

so ...
https://learnxinyminutes.com/docs/python/
perhaps this could be useful resource for others to learn .
