THE DISCOVERY

I discovered python roughly two years ago when I met someone who designed a countdown timer and calculator using python.

I became curious, ask a couple of questions and did my research on Python and Data Science. Boom! here I am.

According to Statistics, Python is one of the top 5 easiest programming languages to learn. It is my first programming language and so far, it has been extremely exciting and quite challenging.

My 100DaysofPython Challenge

I already embarked on my #100daysofpython journey. Currently, I am on Day 18 you can check it out on my Twitter page.

My Day 1 of #100daysofpython was actually based on installing Anaconda(Jupyter Notebook), which was my first workspace editor before switching to the VSCode which is highly recommendable.

So, I'll be dropping a couple of materials and links that I am using as a guide to learning python.

Here are three important things, I've learnt so far:

  1. Don't be afraid of Google and Youtube. Browse!Browse!! Browse!!! your life out if you're stuck.
  2. Practice little tasks every day.
  3. Be patient.

I hope you find this useful🙂.
