I spent about 2 months using sites like Udemy and Codeacademy and while they are good, I've learned more with the challenges here in 3 days than I have in the last 2 months of watching videos and doing very basic exercises. The challenges aren't easy but they do force you to code, fail, Google, read docs, Stack overflow, code more, learn and finally solve the problem. PyBites has been immensely helpful.» Robert M.

You guys aren't developing an army of geeks or nerds. You're developing an army of problem solvers and that's a nobel deed ! It's very inspiring.
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.
I recently interviewed for this Data Engineer position. I was able to answer questions during their technical phone screening that I otherwise wouldn’t have known because I kept up with the bites.
I ended up getting an offer and I start next Monday!
It’s true that there is a degree of luck to this, but practicing allowed me to capitalize on the luck!
PyBites was very challenging when I first started. But, I quickly found that the testing system provided helpful, instant feedback. The bites push you to learn new aspects of the language and how they fit together to solve a problem. The successes spur you to keep trying and this creates a virtuous cycle. It's a bit embarrassing but I started dreaming about Python! I can honestly say that the platform took me from beginner knowledge to intermediate. I definitely recommend it to anyone who would like to stretch their limits.
Overall the PyBites is a great resource to jump in and begin coding in Python. Each bite showcases a certain topic in Python that helps establish the fundamentals of the language. Looking forward in continuing the journey. :)
Regardless if you're new to coding or an experienced developer, the greatest approach to hone and advance your skills is by coding daily. Even if just for 30 minutes a day. I've been teaching myself to code for a few years now and I've used countless resources to do this. But, NOTHING has dominated the benefits I've received growing my skills on PyBites. PyBites is a FANTASTIC platform with a GREAT and FRIENDLY community. There is ALWAYS someone willing to help anyone else out. You should come join us!!
I can't thank the PyBites team enough for their dedication to building a solid learning platform for the beginner, intermediate, and advanced Pythonista alike. The variety of exercises continues to grow in depth and breadth, there are consistently new coding challenges to push your limits and expand your knowledge. The Slack community is a open and inviting place to share ideas and ask for help if you get stuck on a problem.
PyBites gets me up and motivated in the morning! It's better than coffee!
PyBites was instrumental in getting me up to speed fast with Python after a career with other technologies. Not only was it directly responsible for helping me land a great job but it also exposed me to many different aspects of Python programming that crosses multiple disciplines, something that very few resources do.
