If It’s not hard, It’s not worth doing, right? This is what made me start to look at coding, the title of the book (Learning Python the hard way) looked like a challenge I was willing to take up. I’am not saying I took to it like a duck to water but it molded my mind to make me think like a coder much like reddit molds your mind into a twisted sence of humour.
I find self teaching works for me but it’s not for everyone. Give it a try what can go wrong!
