    I recently started yet another course on Python. I was looking to see if anybody else is also trying to do the same? Maybe we can team up and help each other go through with it and share useful information.

    This post is aimed towards both beginner and intermediate programmers. Let me know if anyone is interested. We can do a skype group or something similar.

    count me in
    wanted to learn python for several years but never really got far, it all looks so complicated and because of that i get demotivated very fast
    i hope a learning group can help me with this

    you know what would be great, if the group can build a project together and i'm not talking about some kindergarten stuff like a celsius to fahrenheit converter. NO! i think we should make something big! like the next big search engine, you know, with matrix search, artificial intelligence, low-rank approximation technique and other cool algorithms

    what do you think?

    Python is really fun, and easy. If you're a beginner, Python is definitely the way to go!

    def main():
    print("Python is simple,")
    print("Once you learn the libraries.")

    if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()

    I am interested i already have read a college book on python and am somewhat literate in computer programming.

    If:
    Python = simple
    print("This is simple!")
    Else:
    print("This is hard!")

    I tried learning Python before but I didn't get to pursue it when I got so busy with work. Downloaded lots of ebooks and videos which I think are a bit outdated now. Maybe it's time for me to try again. :D

    As earlier stated, Python is simple if you learn the libraries, and if you have some programming experience or training.

    If you are starting from the ground up, then what you would be teaching is an algorithms course using Python as the course language. For this, you can use any algorithms book or online example and simply use Python as the conveying language.

    Once a person has the basic concepts and algorithms down, then that knowledge is transferable to any language; it is only a learning of syntax.
