    Question Where to learn python for beginners?

    Good day guys! Newbie here and I'm not really sure if this is the righ place to post this. Anaways, I want to learn python but when I tried searching the net or in youtube, the tutorials that I found were so old (most of them were created 2009-2012) and most of them is for windows. Can you guys suggest webistes or youtube channel to learn python? Thanks in advance guys!

    Best thing you can do imo is find a project or something you want to do. First find what you want to use it for, hardware control, modelling, data visualisation etc etc.

    Even if its plot a sine wave or sort the songs in a folder and rename them. Once you find a project and go about googling / reading each problem you encounter it will become much easier.

    Perhaps this book? Looks like it's free to read from their site.

    The best way to learn is to start give yourself a reasonably simple but lengthy project. When i read books i tend to forget everything. That is why i now just give myself projects and get started in a new language. That way it all gets stored in long-term memory.
