@zystvan: Coding is indeed amazing. If you stop to think about it, you have the power to create anything you want with it, you just need to know how to do it. For example, I’d create many cats, instances, where their variable obey would be True other than False, so they would obey me
Programming is great but I think the language you use to do it is an important part of it!
Hope you get that internship! Just relax if they decide to make you some questions just to know what they should teach you.
@draygglez: Hmmm, I’ve finished the Python course here, and a few others, and I have to say that after learning a language here you should go and CODE ! You won’t get better at something without practice! You can learn the entire syntax about it but if you’ve never pushed yourself to the limit, you won’t be different from the others.
Not saying you should compare yourself with the others but you should do more, you know?
I’d suggest go for Command Line and work hard on it. It’s not hard, seriously, but you need to pay close attention to which directory you’re currently in.
@cadecodes: Oh, welcome to Codecademy! Glad you found this website and had curiosity to learn how to code!
I can’t “really” say I’m a C++ programmer since I don’t know everything about it but I can find my way through and trust me, if you know C++, you’ll find Python really easy!
@gaurangtandon: I got hooked with Python thanks to my sister, first came face-to-face because my sister wanted to do something in Python and neither of us knew about it so I looked through many websites, tutorials, videos and such.
I have to say it wasn’t easy to find a good website, that would explain things other than just say “Hey, you do this just by calling/using that. Here’s an example:”, those things sure get me on my nerves!
You like Mathematics as well? Me too!
Oh but when they mix complex computing things with mathematics, things can turn into a nightmare-wannabe haha
I’ve decided to first focus on Python, and Command Line since I mainly use Linux at college, to later go for other languages. I want to become really good at it and to be able to help others with their doubts.
Just like @gaurangtandon said, there’s nothing more frustating than having a doubt and not finding anyone who can help you.
Glad Codecademy members are always willing to help each other !
