Interested Python Web Developer. I am currently taking online course on Python and my intention is to learn python for web and automation purposes. I have completed the automate the boring stuff and Python crash course books, learning flask by writing simple apps. I trust the journey I began and I hope to get better in python programming.
Any recommendations on the course or books to read after the aforementioned or even mentorship, will be highly appreciated.

Hey those are really good books, congrats for reading them.

There are some good courses on Python for Data Science and Machine Learning in Edx, or Coursera, from MIT, Harvard, IBM and probably some others. I really recommend going through one of those :)

Hello Chris! I've been looking into starting off working with financial data. To get myself comfortable with data science, I enlisted in the Data Science Path from CodeAcademy.

I'm a Full-Stack Web Developer. I woke up this morning feeling like starting my own blog 😄and luckily I stumble upon this great community. I like keeping myself up-to-date with latest trends and technologies for web development. I would like to share some of my knowledge/experience from the things I've learned so far as a developer, so if you have any tips/tricks on how to create a nice post please send them my way.

Have a great week everyone!

Hello everyone. I'm relatively new here. I have read a few posts but have never created any myself. There's a lot I want to write about but sometimes, I just don't think my post will be helping anyone as I'm not as experienced as most of the people I see here. I hope to become skilled enough so as to boost my confidence to cause a change in my community through blog posts and videos.
I am a full-Stack JS Dev with experience working with the PREN stack, I also recently started a course (python FLASK) on Udacity (fullstack Nanodegree program) and I should be graduating in about a month.
Once again, I'm glad to be here.

Hey Dev.to 👋

Super excited to be here. I love the concept here and though this would be a great place to learn new ideas and share what I do.

I am the technical co-founder of asknicely.com , I started building the site in my bedroom 5 years ago, now it's turned into a company with offices in Portland USA, Auckland NZ and now Amsterdam!

I spend most my time trying to keep complexity out of our product! Anyone can make the product more complex but it takes some real effort to keep it simple.

Looking forward to sharing some code and fun solutions to some interesting problems we had.

Cheers, John
