great, i started with python a while back too, and it's been great.
how has the learning process been for you

 

It has been exciting. I mean I've done some basic programming in c, c# in college but Python is something else. I've used 'Automate The Boring Stuff with Python' initially. Currently working on a project for a friend. It's like learn and implement which I'd say is the best way to learn.

true. I started with so much youtube tutorials but found out later i wasn't really understand deep enough, until i started building some projects.
am guessing your on the web development part of python

Yeah, right now I am doing web development. But I want to explore things before I stick to one track. What are you working on if you don't mind me asking

Wow, that's intense. Well, I have this photographer friend. So I'm building a portfolio sort of webapp for her. It is still in very initial phase of development. Previously I've done basic projects like to-do app

I'm working with Django. How long have you been learning/working with Python.

My job sometimes doesn't give me the time to do anything else.

Hi! I just started learning in python. Any suggestions for resources. What all types of projects can i try doing.

You might wanna start with 'Automate The boring stuff with Python'. I'd say it's one of the best book for python. You can buy it or it's available for free on automatetheboringstuff.com. also keep practicing on platforms like hackerrank, codewars. For projects, you might want to start small like to-do app or a portfolio website. I know a lot of people do the same projects but you've got to start somewhere and I read somewhere if you want to understand how the wheel works then sometimes you gotta reinvent it. Don't worry about anything else other than learning for now.
