    As the title says... In this Journey I will cover the basics of Python in 21 days.

    Now I have a little experience with Python. I started with Learn Python the Hard Way, finished mid way and jumped onto a problem that needed solving. Never really got back and completed the thing, so here I am.

    Every day I will strike off one chapter that I complete from the book I am using.

    [​IMG]

    What am I using?
    I will be using an opensource book called "How to Think Like a Computer Scientist". For now I will be learning python 2.7 as some of the recent projects that I wish to work on require this version of Python.

    End Goal:
    I started this project today, on the 8th of Jan, so by 29th I should be done with this exercise.

    On the 30th Jan I will code a small little tool that the members of BHW might find handy (hopefully).

    Thanks for sharing the resource. Maybe once I have a grasp of the basics I will head out there.

    Because I had to start somewhere? I don't want to waste too much time cherry-picking a language. Most of the famous languages are good enough for what I intend to do. Plus You can always learn another if you feel you are missing out, right?

    First three chapters completed.
    I am typing out every little piece of code in the book into my laptop so as to become familiar with the syntax.
    Very easy so far as am already familiar to these chapters. Should get challenging towards the end.

    Wish me luck!

    If you are specifically going python, i would suggest checking out the book "learn python the hard way" available free online.
    Its got excersises and python specific tricks.
    Realistically coding involves more than just the writing of the code.
    Knowing how builds work and the underlying fundamentals of the language you are using are also important.

    At the end of the day learning to programing to code to the first step and i hope you see success from it
