Re: Anyone got any tips and tricks for python?
Basically it is just easy to read and program with. It has advantages to it, such as being able to deal with complex numbers without having to first program in those rules like you would have to with C or Java. And it is still pretty powerful. Basically, from what I have done with it, it is better for learning concepts and not having to worry so much about syntax. Which is a double edge sword really. The other thing is that you could make some lightweight and useful programs with it pretty quick compared to some. I found it quite good for getting into the concept of Object Oriented type stuff. (And made Java not seem so odd when it talked about classes and stuff.)
Upon saying all that though, just like most programming languages, it has its ups and downs.
My tip for learning it, do not try to memorize every command, but try to understand the logic. Use reference sheets if needed.
My other tip is, that this should probably go in programming part of the forums rather than the cafe.
The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.
