Beginner questions! What course?

Hello everyone,
I am a beginner programmer and know almost nothing about coding. I would like to code/program some games or data science or something like that. I have had contact with a bit of different programming languages, but I think python is my favorite and easiest one for me and the big question is what course you all recommend. I would like to study and learn Python, but I don’t know where to start. Where to start and what next?
And English is not my native language, so I apologize for my writing.

Hi there, It’s great to hear that you’re interested in learning Python! Don’t worry about your English, you’re doing just fine. Python learning material can be found all over the internet, the important thing here is pick one and stick with it until the end ( or at least try it long enough to know it is really helping you), The reason I am saying this is because there are a lot of different resources claiming to be the best at teaching Python and you can easily get distracted, I fell victim to it myself.
If you do not know anything about python, I recommend recommend this course, it is a bit long but covers the basics and some advanced topics and also building some games as projects

Hey Papaio,

I would suggest below steps

  1. Check YT videos about “career opportunities in IT industry”

  2. Check jobs opportunities in your area or location you wish to shift to later ?

  3. Once you finalize on above step, then only jump into learning particular technology or choose career path.

IMP note, once you choose just stick to that career path for next 5 years minimum to gain proper experience and make yourself valuable.

Jumping between career paths is risky, as you’ll be jack of all trades, master of none.

Let me know if you’ve further questions
