So, I’ve decided to start working on my Python skills. I’ve always been a code borrrower, using others’ scripts and modifying them to fit my own needs. I imagine this describes a lot of you out there. It’s always easier to edit other work than create something on your own. Like anything in the Linux world, there are a lot of resources out there, both free and paid. I found a good subreddit about it here: https://www.reddit.com/r/learnpython/
Based on that, I’ve decided to go through the course at Learn Python the Hard Way. I like his approach of repetitive lessons. Also, he stresses using the command line, rather than an IDE. The initial exercises are really basic, but I’ve been slogging through them and I’ll update here with my progress.
