Python: Who to Follow, What to Read and Where to Ask

wilfredinni profile image Wilfredinni Originally published at pythoncheatsheet.org ・8 min read


As a self-taught Python Developer and a newbie myself, I think that one of the most important things when starting is to surround ourselves with all things Python related. We can read Blogs, follow developers on Twitter and try to contribute to their projects on GitHub. We can also subscribe to the different mailing lists that exist, and of course, to the many YouTube channels that put online and free of charge millions of hours of content so we can just keep getting better and better at Python.

In this post, I want to share some of the "assets" that I have collected to this point.

A curated list of awesome Python frameworks, libraries, software and resources.

The realpython.com tutorial team is known for making the highest-quality Python tutorials available online.

I spent some of my spare time in the last month or so writing a tiny blog engine, and I really like how it came out.

I write about Python, Django, AngularJS and sometimes something non-technical.

Stories about Python, Django and Web Development.

Now you want to take your initial Python knowledge and make something real, like a web application to show off to friends or sell as a service to customers. That's where Full Stack Python comes in. You have come to the right place to learn everything you need to create, deploy and operate Python-powered applications.

In a blog we tell how to develop and grow sustainable and scalable Fintech, Taxi&Transportation and Booking products. We also answer customers' most common questions and cover useful topics.

Learning to program makes you a smarter and more capable human being. Computers are not only the most common tool we encounter in our day-to-day lives, but also the most powerful. Even if your plans don't include becoming a software engineer writing code for the next Mars mission, you can find value in learning to code.
