The learning curve has grown pretty steep. It went from very easy to comprehend to accelerating quickly into programming challenges that I could not wrap my head around for hours. However, I constantly remind myself that I am entering the stage of learning when most people will quit. I just need to tough it through even though I have no idea where the light at the end of the tunnel is. At what stage or depth of experience do programmers start feeling proficient and “experienced?” I doubt I am even into the “steep” portion of the learning curve yet. After I finish my 25-30 hours in CodeAcademy’s Python3, I was advised by friends to start looking at code challenge sites like CodeWars or Kaggle for real life projects and practice.
What else should I be learning alongside Python3? I was just reading an article on the difference between programming and computer science and it makes me wonder if I should start taking some of the free Harvard or Stanford MOOCs on computer science.
I don’t know. Merry Christmas.
