Learn about the YAGNI concept, then. It is never a good habit to overthink simple things.

Take simple project and finish it. Or if you are curious, Python checkio is full of useful stuff, but you won't see them unless you solve the problems there. So you can stay motivated.

Makes sense, just kind of trying to make best practice and full out optimization a thing from the get go. Feel like it's a must, especially since some day in the future I may be able to test my random theories and concepts out and they will rely on every bit they can get as far as timing, optimization, etc.

You're right though, if something can be optimized and improved.. What better practice is to alter something without breaking it, so I'll focus on getting stuff done. Appreciate you, and funny thing. Was pretty set on JavaScript but I started reading on PHP and Django.

Gonna do my best to stick to Python for now. Already have Pythonista 3 and it can be used with Shortcuts.

Random question, been eyeing this app for weeks now.. It's a Jupyter Notebook, for Python related stuff apparently. Know anything about it?

Remember

Taken from fsharp for fun and profit.

As for Jupyter Notebooks, it is not only related only to Python. Originally, JuPyteR stood for Julia, Python and R - and right now it supports a variety of programming languages.

You can try it in VS Code. Just create file with the ipynb extension or you can try it online here.

I have no PC at the moment, they're kind of, uhhh. Well, part of programming I will learn to fix them in due time, hahaha.

Oh, I just meant this app in particular. Every other Jupyter thing costs money, besides this one and apparently it's better than the paid ones. The same developer also has.. I will just link them.

Even has a miniature version of the a-shell.

Just not sure why, but yeah.. For weeks, keep ending up looking at it. Might just download em and be done with it, not sure.

Yeah, safety is programmed in my head. Worked in plants for a few years, was kind of the "safety guy" without the title. "Cause I care." Haha, not going to explain why or go in to story mode, but looking at code terrifies me, or used to.. Just getting to the point where I will read it and starting to download things like that and such again, hence the learning of networking amongst other things.
