Don't use buckys tutorials for learning python.

Why not? You're just going to state something of that nature on Bucky's forums with no reason or support for your statement?

Taken from the page above:

“Python 3 is a nicer and more consistent language, BUT, there is very limited third-party module support for it. This is likely to be true for at least a couple of years more. So, all major frameworks still run on Python 2, and will continue to do so for a significant time. Therefore, if you learn Python today, you should learn Python 2, because that is the version you are going to end up actually using.”

In my honest opinion though, it doesn't really matter which one you learn because there are only minor variations between the two versions. There is more library support and documentation for Python 2.x but I'm sure in the near future, there will be just as much support for Python 3. All in all, it really is a personal preference and depends ultimately on what you are trying to achieve.

Best of luck to you learning Python. It's a fun language cause it is easy to learn but super powerful. Can't wait to see some of your programs in the forums :happy:

I feel Python 3 made some functions and codes a lot easier to understand.

Also in the Python 3 tutorials he uses pycharm, so he'll walk you through that.

@Mathias why not?

I corrected my post now. I meant python 2. Those tutorials are ridiculously old and not very good.
