Excellent video, I was struggling to get to know about open source projects I think I got a headway

carykinsfather on Aug. 10, 2019

pdw was the biggest takeaway from this course. I wish I had known about that from day one. Thanks!

cellis4 on Aug. 13, 2019

Great intro video.. loved the pdb video as well as the GitHub info… thanks!

great video! Thanks a lot

Vaclav Pokorny on Nov. 21, 2019

Thank you very much for pointing me to the right direction. :-)

fpatterson55 on Nov. 29, 2019

PDB, is something new I hadn’t seen. I also appreciate that fstrings are introduced with it being a more recent implementation.

thanks!

Daniel on Dec. 5, 2019

Good point that of pbd. Step by step debugging, something I wish I had known before!

binuacs on Dec. 6, 2019

Thank you !!

eduartef on Dec. 20, 2019

Using PDB, and the recommendation about using shell were the most profitable for my learning path. Thanks a lot.

agerbes on Jan. 16, 2020

Thank you for your intro video. pdb was really easy to use. For the moment, I am more interested in a topic related timetable, where I know how and where to start my python journey and continue strategically. Do you have such a sample to share with us?

cbpagalis on Jan. 24, 2020

thank you very much. good videos good resource for a totally new beginner

Phil M on Jan. 25, 2020

Very good tips and information, thank you! :)

emalfiza on Jan. 27, 2020

@Darren is one of my fav pythonist. thanks for everything you have done for python community.

Lokman on Jan. 29, 2020

Thanks for this tutorial, really awesome since there is module pdb that can trace you error code not just about linter. And how to use github platform to contribute your knowledge.

chellaganesh on Feb. 19, 2020

Great, Thanks.

1 take away is, Coding, every day.

davidriddington on March 11, 2020

There’s a great tip in each of these sections, but the one that does it for me is the one on asking GOOD questions. I bet that, by the time I’d formulated my problem into a GOOD question, I’d have figured out the answer for myself 50% of the time.

deardamao on March 14, 2020

Real Tips

dragonfly7 on March 22, 2020

Good stuff !

My main takeaways are: * pdb * asking GOOD questions (obvious though … ;-) ) * taking python projects at github to further elaborate skills

wayne2056 on March 27, 2020

Great TIPS.... WTG!!!!

Cristian Luca on April 4, 2020

Awesome, Darren! Thank you so much!

Cory on April 23, 2020

I appreciate this video series since the way I learned php was to just plow through and constant lookups of things that I glanced over.

Uday Kiran K on May 21, 2020

Excellent! PBG is my favourite part of the video.

Omar Scott on June 16, 2020

Great stuff. My take aways are using pdb and a Pomodoro timer to keep myself going at a steady pace instead of overworking.

Thanks.

sherekhan1 on June 28, 2020

good video! thank you, great take aways such as pdb :-)

chrisford51 on July 17, 2020

This series of videos compliments other courses I am doing very well

Perryg on July 18, 2020

Thanks for these course.

Agil C on July 20, 2020

Thanks for the tips..!

cherianzachariah on July 22, 2020

Excellent Video!! I was blown away by the python debugger module. I was completely unaware of this and no other learning sites mentioned about this. Wow!!

jameslradford on Aug. 2, 2020

I agree with @cherianzachariah. I will be using this module a lot in my learning. Thanks.

Nate S on Sept. 3, 2020

Great course series. Two really great things I got from it were PDB and ways to improve skills by contributing to open source.

Sabrina Teoh on Sept. 8, 2020

Definitely a great start to my Python journey and learning about pdb is the most rewarding out of this short course.
