This week I really picked up speed with Learn Python the Hard Way. A quick review of my progress:
Monday, January 5: Exercises 7, 8, 9, and 10. Instructions on prepping kale.
Tuesday, January 6: Exercises 11 & 12, and a kale recipe.
Wednesday, January 7: Exercises 13 & 14, and instructions on how to prep tofu.
Thursday, January 8: Exercises 15, 16, & 17. Attended PyATL meetup that night!
Friday, January 9: Studied exercises 18, 19, and 20. Drafted first half of cooking lesson.
Saturday, January 10: Completed exercise 21 and posted 18, 19, 20, 21, and a significant cooking lesson.
Now I’ve moved on to exercise 22, in which I’m supposed to review all previous chapters (0 – 21, and the Command Line Crash Course) and identify all symbols used. I’m doing this on paper, taking notes as I review the previous exercises.
I’ve been taking notes on paper through the exercises, as I find it’s a good way to force myself to be concise and really put what I’m doing into my own words. I also sometimes draft phrases for my posts on paper, though more frequently in text files. I’ve also have pages and pages of notes from the several times I attempted LPTHW in the past.
Tonight, however, I’m taking myself out for the first time since New Year’s Eve! I’ve been working incredibly hard all week: really applying myself and devoting all available free time to my Python lessons. Tomorrow, I’m attending another meet-up. So, at least for tonight, I am allowing myself a bit of fun: Atu and Dpat at Basement ATL with a new friend. Adios for now!
