Learning Python my journey and top tips!

Over the last year or so, I've finally got the hang of object orientated programming. An unsurprising enabler was learning python.

Lots of people have seen me on the journey and have asked me for some links and tips.

And the good news is you can learn all this stuff for free! Gratis…. no money….However! I will be giving Corey and Engineer man some money via Patreon, because I learned so much more than with Lynda or Linkedin learning etc.. and I give them £30pm
