I am not convinced that this site is helpful. I need to be taught how to not just be given heavy jargon and asked to write a code
Go here and start doing the problems present by coding them. If you can get to 15 with out too much difficulty you actually have a good grasp on python and programming. If not it should provide enough of a challenge that you will learn what you need to know.
Also do not cheat and look up the solution or it does nothing for you. Solve the problems with your own ingenuity.
