Why hello there everyone!
I decided to take part of L1T Devember event/challenge, so well here goes. I’ll try to structure this post so that anyone interested can read the interesting parts (if there even is any) and skip my unnecessary yadayada.
Oh yea, and this is my first topic I’m posting. Sorry if I screwed up something!
First, before I forget:
I, Even747, will participate to the next Devember. My Devember will be to relearn programing using Python. I promise I will program for my Devember for at least an hour, every day of the next December. I will also write a daily public devlog and will make the produced code publicly available on the internet. No matter what, I will keep my promise.
My Devember challenge and goal
I’m going to use this Devember event to get back to programing. For this I will use Python. I’ll try to achieve this by using online tutorials and maybe doing some small programing projects on my own. I will also use part of the time figuring out how to use Git/GitHub and also, how to use Vim. Previously I’ve used Notepad++, NetBeans, and Atom for coding, but lately Vim has started to look really interesting text editor. So my Devember won’t probably be 100% about coding, but definitely 100% of coding related. IF for example Vim turns out to be too much for me then I simply change to something else and thus won’t waste my whole Devember to it.
Oh, and part of the reason to join Devember event is to get to know this community better. I joined about two months ago and so far L1T forums have been awesome place to be.
About the little project etc I mentioned please see dedicated section.
Background and the project itself
All my previous programing experience is from Win7/8, but now I will use Ubuntu 18.04, or 18.10 if I find enough motivation to upgrade. Not sure if this is relevant info but now you know.
While not going too much into detail I’ve been struggling with some health related issues past 6 months, and my feeling is it’s not over yet. So I for this or what ever reason I have to cancel/abandon this challenge I will let everyone know in this devlog and message @Dynamic_Gravity, since he is the the event maintainer.
Well every time I’ve googled for “best beginner programing language” or “what language to use to learn coding” Python has always been on those lists, often being the first one. Sooo I’m guessing that could be the best language for my Devember? Also, I’ve understood Python is not some learn-to-program language that would turn out to be obsolete after a while, but is actually used in both small and big software projects.
But if someone has suggestions for some other languages I’m open for suggestions!
Why not JAVA? Idk tbh, I would rather use/learn something else.
I’ll explain my ideas for the coding projects in next post.
