Step 1: Learn the basics of
Python

  • Don't know yet how to write code on your laptop? Here are 3 suggestions, all free:
    • The quickest way (online): Just visit
      https://repl.it/languages/python3

      and start coding
    • Offline: download & install
      Visual Studio Code

      (recommended, with a lot of helpful plugins that save a ton of time),
      https://atom.io/packages/atom-ide-ui

      or
      PyCharm

  • Learning resources for you, try out and see what you prefer:
    • Udacity online course (free):
      Programming Foundations with Python

    • YouTube video tutorial (free):
      Learn Python - Full Course for Beginners [Tutorial] - YouTube

    • YouTube video tutorial (free):
      Intro to Data Science - Crash Course for Beginners - YouTube


    • More content for beginners (free & paid)


Step 2: Play around with mini project examples, to get more comfortable with
Python

=>

See what you like most:
  • 'Automate the Boring stuff' book
    • free online version:

    • paid print & ebook:

  • Code Club Modules for Python


Step 3: Plan & build a concrete project, that matters to you:
  • Example projects
    Python

    is awesome for:
    • Data science - analyze datasets
    • Automating tasks on your computer
    • Build a website (with
      Django

      or Flask as a backend)
    • Build a quiz game
    • Analyze data from APIs of other websites (YouTube, Meetup, Google Maps, Twitter, Buffer, Google Vision
      AI

      , etc.)
    • Machine learning
  • Projects for inspiration:
    https://glitch.com/

    or search via Google

Step 4: Help others learning
Python

- ask around who needs help.



===========

>> Safe Space Policy:<<
You deserve events where you feel welcomed and relaxed - not judged by others, not harassed and not mansplained by anyone. That counts regardless of your gender, sexual orientation, age, religion or outfit. To make sure everyone at our event has a great time just make sure you follow our one rule: Be excellent to each other. Or in other words: be nice, welcoming, and if you are a cis male, be conscious of not dominating conversations and don't mansplain.

If anyone makes you feel uncomfortable - talk to that person. Or talk to one of the organizers in person or message me: marco@heyskill.me
