How to Learn More repl.it
00:00 Okay, so maybe you got excited about using this online coding environment called Repl.it. Now here’s a question, “How to learn more about it?” And I don’t have a specific course that I can recommend you but what you can do, since this whole thing lives from its online community, I would suggest you to just get involved in the online community.
00:19 There is a Quick Start Guide on the Repl.it site that you can go through, which walks you through using Repl.it for Python 3. It looks like a lot of reading—it’s a bit like the docs—but it’s actually a nice getting started guide that you can work through.
00:32 And then I would suggest you check out the community. There’s lots of interesting tutorials in there. There’s conversations, comments that you can collaborate with other people on. Check out what they have built and just try taking it apart like that. Of course, one of the most important ways of learning is also just to go make an account—or don’t make an account and stay anonymous.
00:59 All right, so that’s what I would suggest you to do. Keep in mind that this is a pretty cool way of sharing code with other people. Know when you want to use it and when you want to work with a local coding environment, because obviously there’s some problems with working with something online.
01:14 For example, if I go and disconnect my WiFi—ha, that’s it, right? I can’t work on this unless I’m connected to the internet. It has its use cases, and sometimes it’s also just not the best way to go.
