What are the capabilities of what I can do with Python and how do I further my understanding?
John_WardWard (297)

Background

So far, at school, we've been learning python with Turtle, but I've seen also people do so much stuff on regular python. I want to do something a bit more advanced and start to makes some bigger projects, most preferably on regular python. Does anyone know how to do this? On python I basically have got through 50% of the Codecademy course, and know how to do maths and other basic functions like

x=2

if x%0==0:
  print("Even")
else:
  print("Odd")

However, this feels quite basic and I would like to push my understanding on further! Does anybody have any suggestions, or maybe give me an idea for a project I could make where I could possibly pick up a bit of python. Codecademy is OK, but like many , I prefer to learn by practically implementing skills.

Thank you.
John_WardWard :)

Maybe the flask tutorial will help. Flask is a framework for building python web apps.

Learning more about Python is good, but you will learn more if you learn another language as well. It sounds weird at first, but learning multiple languages will help you understand how other languages work.

@theangryepicbanana Would you recommend any especially?

@John_WardWard If you already know Python, I'd recommend Ruby or CoffeeScript, as they both share some features, and also add new ones.

@theangryepicbanana Learning ruby right now, and am finding it really entertaining!

@John_WardWard Awesome! May I ask what you are using to learn it?
