Beginner resources paid/free help

Stick w these free resources or cave in for codecademy pro / any other?

So I learnt the bare basics of Python 7-8 months ago, but didn’t practice much cuz of uni and stuff.

Started learning the basics again, I remember a bit but still had to start from scratch. been using learnpython.org, the YouTube playlist by Corey Schafer: [this](https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL-osiE80TeTskrapNbzXhwoFUiLCjGgY7) (the most helpful resource I’ve found till now), and other random YouTube content

Wondering if I should try codecademy pro or any other paid resource for a few months to actually learn the basics and then move on to building projects etc. or are those above free resources good enough to start off?

  1. pavementbrain

    take notes and try and use what your learning in mini projects, paying with money for information thats out on the web freely or something you can learn in your sleep/in a project wont help that much.

    tips i can give you are:
    1. try coding everyday before bed/debugging code before bed. You may not know it but your brain does a lot of things while you are sleeping and analyzing things you did throughout the day is one of them. If you are struggling with code or want to learn more information, sleeping on that information you learned is ideal.
    2. Never try a big project unless you know you are ready for it. When i was a lot younger and just started coding, i thought it would be a great idea to try and make a game engine only to learn it required a lot of dedication and some higher skills i still hadnt obtained in terms of education. This really put me off coding and probably stunted what growth i couldve gained in that time that i had gotten burnt out.

    Sorry if this is a lot to process but i think i could help you out a little bit. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask!
