How I “Learned” Python without Any Previous Coding Experience

78views

I developed a deep interest in programming while studying law without experience in any language. Surprisingly, I realized coding works like the law; it’s also premised on logic. I have grown fond of Python’s consistency, intuitive syntax, and the massive library. I didn’t have a flying start though with Learn Python the Hard Way, my first port of call. After learning a few basic concepts and syntax with the course, I immersed myself into talks by Brandon Rhodes, Raymond Hettinger, and David Beazley.

These speakers will impart troves of knowledge but for advanced learners. Other than that, I enrolled in a CCNA course in Pune and it became a ray of sunshine with its insider insight like installing a text editor, Python and invoking the terminal.

Sevenmentor offered virtually everything from soups to nuts to make my learning curve less frustrating.

In fact, a vast majority of coding enthusiasts taking complicated tutorials end up quitting. Seven Mentor will walk you through the fundamentals of a computer program and cement your multi-disciplinary knowledge in networking, software development, CAD, Cloud Computing or Cisco CCNA.

For newbies like me, I found this site very exciting as it offers free trials and packages. The tutoring was fluid and practical. The courses explain everything in detail and how each program works. They also share a variety of helpful materials for self-assessment free of charge. I enrolled for a full Python course as a token of appreciation.

 Learning the ins and outs of Python can be a devil of a job. Everyone has a unique cognitive ability. But no first programming course is easy. It takes chunks of time and nerves to crack the code. It took a month to synergize the tasks and features I was exposed to discern Python’s technical documents. Seven Mentor has made it smooth and engaging with different media to meet your demands.

I found the site nifty as I rarely referred to third-party resources to fill in any gaps. I was learning the ropes step by step. The ability to tweak templates according to your whims broadened my coding horizons. Best of all, a combination of anecdotes, puzzles, humor, and interactive sessions made my introductory language engaging.

I retraced my steps in LPTHW and my things took a new turn as everything appeared familiar. It will not work well for anyone starting from scratch because you have to solve underlying problems without any assistance. CCNA tutorials explain the theories behind computing and how concepts have evolved throughout the years.

I must say I’m an attorney who codes and I urge my colleagues to follow suit. Studying law also gave me analytical skills, attention to detail, the economy of words and staying up to date with technologies that many learners may lack.

Data engineering and code language helped me maximize my firm’s ROI. I’m now creating learning algorithms and have executed other paramount tasks that lay beyond my ken as a lawyer. The secret behind my success and perseverance came from combining the basics with crafting something interesting.

Below, you can follow my first-hand hacks to pull off Python.

  • Determine why you need Python and how it will give you an edge
  • Learn the basic syntax and get it down to a fine art
  • Take on projects to push your capabilities, learn fresh ideas, and enrich your portfolio with applicable output
  • Learn data science or machine learning to start building complex algorithms like neural networks
  • Leverage a mix of educative materials online like games, websites, and robots
  • Work on projects alone to resolve errors and issues
  • Keep increasing the intricacy and scope of your projects
