Last year, I wrote a python program for my school project. It was a trivia quiz game with GUI made using tkinter. I used online apis for gettings question & then stored the stats in a binary file.
Now this year we have to extend that project & incorporate databases, so I will be using sqlite db to store questions & stats.
So yeah, that was my proper first program that I wrote.

Well, now I have even learned Django & can build proper websites with backend. I even made a trivia quiz website using Django 😅 . triviaquiz.redcrypt.xyz/

I have learned quite a lot from back then but I still have a lot to learn. Just waiting for my exams to get over so that I can continue the learning.

Nice job 🎉 Those button animations are pretty fun

That's definitely a lot more than I did starting out 😅

It always amazes me how much people are able to accomplish when they learn to code in a more structured environment.

I built some simple Java programs and iPhone apps in high school, but I generally felt like had no idea what I was doing until I had more formal instruction in college.

Oh, about that button animation, that I just took from a public codepen, I am more interested in backend so I just use prebuild components for frontend & use bootstrap. 😅
