Do you want to use PyBites in your company / team, to recruit top talent, or to teach Python at your school?
Let's talk, schedule a 30 min Demo Session with 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!
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've been practising using other platforms such as Leetcode, and Hackerank, but I found PyBites significantly more advanced considering both content and website interactivity. Very recommended even if you are not new to Python!
PyBites exercises are a fantastic way to learn by doing. I've gained much more experience and confidence in my coding doing the bites on this site than I have in a couple of years of using books and video tutorials. I wish this site had existed when I first started learning Python, it would have made it much easier and more fun.
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.
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!
To become a solid and confident software developer, you must stretch your skills and knowledge. You have to practice more than most areas of study. That is why #100DaysOfCode has connected with the community so deeply. However, when you are new it is very difficult to know what to build and to stay on track. The PyBites platform is a great asset to help focus your enthusiasm and keep you going for that amazing 100 days.
After being a Pythonista for some time through online reading and writing my own code, I still felt like I missed out on a lot of concepts to make my code more Pythonic and to make use of Python's full potential.
By taking a couple of challenges a day, I managed to take in some more difficult concepts that I didn't understand before.
The bites are just that, small bites of information, all coming with a different Python feature or chaining features together into full-blown usable tools. This allows you to learn at your own rate, while taking breaks as you deem necessary.
The community is very active and helpful if you have questions or you just wanna have a laugh while taking a break from coding. Any problems on the platform or questions about why your code doesn't run? There's always someone to help.
If you're looking for a Python community where you can REALLY develop your skill while getting support from people around the world, don't look any further.
A final note for Bob and Julian, I'm still fresh meat in the community, but the way you guys are handling things makes people feel appreciated as members.
Python has become interesting again and we don't get overwhelmed with useless information. It's a huge language, so sometimes you need a roadmap to get from point to point. You have done a tremendous job mapping this all out.
Thank you guys for turning us into real ninja's :-)
