Why I Started Learning Python - Should you Join Me?

// A THREAD // Image
I will present you with the strongest reasons why I started learning the Python programming language.

I will start with more philosophical reasons and then will jump into the practical ones.

In other words:

1. Why I started learning to code
2. Why Python

ready? Image
If you know @naval, you probably know he strongly advises almost everyone to learn how to code.


Code is the ultimate leverage.

- Zero replication cost
- Programming is a definition of outputs > inputs
- Thousands of machines are waiting for your orders Image
Most truly new-rich people generated their wealth through code.

- Bitcoin

- Social media sites
- Amazon

To quote @naval once again: "Build something, whatever it takes".

And the good seems to be one of the best ways how to do that. Image
Why python?

- Easy to learn - simple syntax
- High-demand
- Broad application
- Great learning materials + community

P.S. If you're interested more in the reasoning behind picking Python check the great article by @javinpaul at hackernoon.com/10-reasons-to-… Image
To increase my motivation and % for success I pick a project I would like to build in it:

I would like to program two small web apps on my blog.

1st. The calculator of your minimum hourly rate based on your expenses
2nd. An app that would project your compound growth Image
How exactly will I learn Python?

I've started this course on @coursera :

coursera.org/professional-c… (non-aff.)

It's directly from Google and in the end, you get a certificate that should be somehow valid in real-world settings.

... I bought a couple of books as well. Image
Why the hell one need books to learn sth. in 2021?

Well, you probably don't but I think having some solid theoretical background is pretty useful.

Trial and error is powerful.

But if you combine it with some good theory, you step into a different dimension. Image
To sum it up:

1. Coding is a high-income skill and ultimate leverage because the machines are waiting there (at almost no cost) to do the work you tell them.

2. Python is an easy to learn language (simple syntax) with high demand and broad application. Image

5 Mistakes That Starting Web Designers Make

// A THREAD // Image
I made all of them for you, so you can avoid them.

What are they?
1. Visual > Functionality
2. Starting with a landing page, not wireframes
3. Mobile second
4. Making the website just to have one
5. Making the website just for themselves. Image
1. Visual > Functionality

This is an obvious trap. And it's really self-explanatory.

You may use beautiful colors but if the structure is a mess, it doesn't matter.

Keep in mind. Image

In other words: how to make a recurring income instead of one time sell.

Here are some of my most favorite ones.
1. Hosting and domain renewing

This one is the most straightforward one.

For the customers, it's usually painful to keep track of domain registration and hosting and if you offer them a maintenance fee they most probably won't refuse.
