    Programming teacher

    Hello i have just started learning python (finished my first beginning python book). I was wanting to make the jump to help developing python applications for Ubuntu. But this is where i fall short, i remember the topics covered by the book but i don't see this book being enough to really teach me everything (experience is allot). My question being, is there anyone out there that would be willing to teach me more, and learn to put the book knowledge to something practical. I don't really care what I'm working on as long as I'm learning. I don't have time to go to college because of the hours i work, but i do allot on my spare time. I am even willing to talk about paying someone to help me. I am very serious about this, you wont have to worry about the "drive" being there. Other than python i am also wanting to learn Gtk3 with python3-gi.
    If this interests you at all please pm me.

    While I dont know that much python, I am a Programmer by profession, one tip that I can give you for free is:

    have something that you want to make.

    if you have an idea for an app that you want to make before you start, then you can learn any language and all the programming metaphors that go with it by searching google
    please check out my blog I have a linux tips section

    There are some free online programming courses from MIT on edx.org with videos and exercises and community support and Peer to Peer University on https://p2pu.org/en/ also have something to offer there. Worth trying at least.

    MIT offers video lectures for programming and they use Python.

    Why not start w/ the programming challenges at the top of the Programming Talk Forum?

    Ubuntu: Because rebooting is ONLY for installing hardware

    Also, especially if you're into python (which is cool) then you might want to tackle the problems at Python Challenge [1] and Project Euler [2].

    Python Challenge is full of progressively more difficult riddles, and is a good place to start getting the hang of the language.

    Project Euler is a much more mathematically based site, but should still give you some good ideas about algorithm design.
