The only way to learn a new programming language is by writing programs in it.- Dennis Ritchie
There is only one way to eat an elephant: a bite at a time.- Desmond Tutu
PyBites is the best platform I can recommend for beginners and advanced Pythonistas. Before joining I was reading books and would not apply anything I learned. On the PyBites platform however I learned: 1. to use many Python libraries. There are plenty of ways to arrive at a solution and through PyBites I learned about many modules in the standard library using them for my solutions. In the discussion forums I learned how to code more "Pythonically", 2. that providing a solution to Bites is one thing, the unit tests that are part of every Bite are really worth reading as well (the test code for every Bite uses different pytest features), 3. that PyBites has a great, wide ranging slack community of pythonistas of all levels. I have had the freedom to share my queries and the community has been really helpful. It's been 2 months since I joined this community and my progress is really good. Not only did I learn about a lot of modules, I also learned how to write better unit tests.
Every bite of Py has been educational and I am continuously being pushed way past my comfort zone and have grown accustomed to an ever changing and dynamic environment. At this rate, I'll be a pro in no time! Thanks Bob and Julian!
Dennis Ritchie said: “The only way to learn a new programming language is by writing programs in it”. This saying is completely justified by PyBites! Their platform gives you immense possibilities to play, experiment and learn with so many different types of pythonic problems, ranging from code challenges, bites and even their interactive courses. Apart from these, PyBites is a community of its own kind. You get help whenever you are in need. Since so many Pythonistas from all across the globe are active here, you get 24*7 support to continue learning in an efficient manner. I literally gained a lot from this place by solving code challenges and learning from and talking to great mentors who are always ready to give you the deepest insight possible. You literally can talk to them even for moral support. How cool is that, don’t you think? Come join our community and become a PyBites Ninja. Happy Coding!
During my long commutes, I wanted to invest the time, instead of being bored out of my mind. I started listening to TalkPythonToMe, which lead me to #100DaysOfCode. After spending a couple of hours every day on the challenges, I got access to some bites on the platform and I got hooked! Perfect timing as the Python Bundle was right around the corner and it was the start of my vacation. I got hooked to the level-based approach. The introduction to the different parts of the standard library and the complexity of the challenges is perfect. It is hard enough to need to read through the documentation or to justify the approach while being specific enough to not 'waste time' on boilerplate code. Before using PyBites and TalkPythonToMe I saw myself as a python script kiddy, enough knowledge to get the job done but no idea how to do it 'pythonicly'. I've completed all of the challenges on the platform in a rather short amount of time because I really enjoyed every bite. In a short period, I feel like I learned how to tackle a large variety of common tasks and know what is considered 'pythonic' and what isn't in most cases. :) Now I spend more time on in the standard library documentation or other docs instead of looking up google queries/stack overflow questions. Thanks, PyBites for this challenging (and addicting) platform!
I used PyBites extensively during my first 100DaysOfCode round. It is an excellent platform for learning Python. Most exercises are bite-sized enough so there is always room to get in at least one of them even on a busy day. It felt I learned a lot of Python language fundamentals, from beginner to advanced topics, by doing different exercises each day. Also I think the test-driven approach in the exercises are a great for learning, and inspires good routines in programming. On top of all that, they make it fun to learn Python, with scores, Ninja belts and what not!
I think one of the nicest things about this is that it's giving me the confidence to say I am a programmer. I was just talking to some colleagues who want to learn Python (for data analysis) and they kept asking me if I thought they "had what it took to learn Python" and I remember being in that boat months ago. However PyBites' code challenges, going to PyCon, always listening to Python Bytes and Talk Python kinda switched my mindset and to be honest I think that's the biggest gain from this platform.
I am a network engineer, not aspiring to be a developer at all. At the beginning, I just wanted to learn some Python to automate stuff. However, after trying PyBites I delved much deeper and learned much more than I ever supposed to. You guys, came up with an absolutely fascinating way to teach a programming language, and I'm grateful to you for all the fun I had and all things I learned. Thanks, and best luck to you developing this project (and any others you may start in future).
I'm really enjoying the Bites! I have not made this much progress in my tech skills in a while and it feels invigorating! Specifically i like that you have: 1. designed the Bites so that they are fairly ambiguous and one has to use Stack Overflow/Google to solve them - this is a good simulation of what a dev does at work / 2. the testing is not too constrained so even if I import different modules etc, tests will still pass. I've noticed that on other platforms, testing is "dumbed" down which can get frustrating. Keep the infinite supply of Bites coming ...
