Hi Dan and Farshad,

Was Farshad’s playback issue ever resolved?

I am about to upgrade to MacOs Catalina, but won’t do it now if it means losing access to RealPython.


Dan Bader RP Team on Feb. 13, 2020

@Will: Yep, the videos work fine on macOS Catalina. I’m using it myself right now :)

Thanks, Dan. BTW, I’ve been an occasional RealPython reader for a while. Great content! You and your team are doing a great job on this. I (finally) signed for full membership yesterday, and am happy I did. My worst problem so far is finishing one tutorial or article and immediately starting another that catches my attention. So, I guess if that is my worst problem, things are pretty good.

Cheers Will, and welcome aboard! That’s a good problem to have indeed :) See you soon on the RP Community Slack!

I like this idea “Make Forward Progress Every Day” I am going to promise myself to make little progress each day. I am part of real python family for last 1-2 months, however this is first time I am watching this video. This really has very cool tips on how to get most out of real python. I am positive that I did right thing joining Real Python family.
