Loved it! I can easily say I have scaled myself up on this topic. Just one suggestion- can we include some more practice programs- Q&A

Thought I had a good handle on tuples and lists, but I learned probably twice as much as I knew before. Super in-depth, great course.

OMG! I thought I knew Python well and you proved me wrong. Know what it is is totally different of knowing how to use it. I am so glad I took this course. Thank you! Thank you! Greetings from Brazil! :D
