Awesome veeery handy :) Especially after I tried really hard to find a solution to how to loop through dictionaries and format the output in a tidy way. As a beginner who aspires to become a game developer I discovered my many basic Python knowledge gaps and work now through Real Pythons Basic, which is a fun and way less distressing way than my previous approach of panicking through book chapters which where too demanding because I was too demanding and didn’t know the solution. I will come back to them at a later point. The video tutorials are also very convenient. They show complex concepts and explain the solution in an easy disgestable / understandable way.
