This is a step-by-step guide on getting started with Python as a total beginner.

(includes free resources and everything else you need to get started)
🧵👇
Before we begin, I want to congratulate you on your decision to learn how to code using Python.

I still remember how I wrote my first piece of code 6 years and all the amazing and cool things I've been able to do with it ever since.

Make sure to keep in mind that it is probably best for you to keep your expectations in check.

Don't expect to make AAA games or state of the art machine learning models in a week.

I wrote my first piece of code 6 years ago.

Here are 10 things I've learned since then.🧵
Not everything should be programmed.

Trying to automate something for hours that takes less than 5 seconds to do, is unnecessary.

Programming can be * overkill * at times.

Code to solve problems that are actually worth solving.
You write programs to get the job done.

It doesn't matter which frameworks or libraries you use to get there.

If there is an existing tool that fixes your problems, there is no need to reinvent the wheel.

Programming frameworks and libraries just tools.

Treat them like one.
