Python Beginner

+1 Sunny ch · August 17, 2015
Hi All,

I would be thankful if you can help me out in learning python. I am basically a BI developer working on SQL and BI tools but I am interested in programming. One of my friends advised me to start with Python and moreover the company in which I am working is using Python for building APIs and other automation stuff.
I have gone through so many tutorials etc but I haven't progressed much. I am very depressed that I am not progressing any where. :(
Please share your experiences on how to start programming. I really want to be a good programmer.

I would really appreciate for your inputs.

Thanks,
Sunny

i know the feeling. when i look at a language and see what people do when i've just started learning about it, then i also feel a bit depressed. but the best thing you can do is to continue with it.

you've got sql already, so you know how a while and for loop works. python's syntax might be a bit different, but the idea still stays the same.

so far the only python learning i've done is on edx. it might be a good idea to have a look at the free university courses online. the lecuturers are very good and they're usually from the big universities.

Thank you so much Wernich.
I have already completed a coursera course.
It has covered basics and reading files.
OOPs concepts are confusing me.I have started watching Boston tutorials.
Where to go next. 

Thanks,
Sunny

take their python track.

funny enough I learned python through personal projects. I'd have a goal of what to make and start building it if there is something I didn't know I looked it up. and doing that made understand a little bit of python. and now I can say I have a decent grasp of the basics. maybe you could do that

Hi Halcyon,

Can you also send me the projects you worked on?

Thanks,
