Python 3 learning for the first time
I have a background in
shell scripting, so when I had to automate something,
bash scripting would do the job just fine!
Took me a while to do something useful with Python 3. At first, seemed an easy language to learn, and I still think it is!
If you already started first steeps, you know you can easily do print a
print ("Hello World"), and you probably learnt a difference on the

Just the command
I thought that there might be someone else out there struggling to get started in Python 3, so I decided to share my experience on “How I start learning Python 3 and doing something useful”.
You can execute command directly from running the command python3

Then, I installed
ipython and practice from there, but I was still on the basics commands and wanted to learn more.
Learn Python 3 on-the-go offline and mobile phone
After trying the basics, I set myself to practice on commute or free time.
Started by downloading the mobile app SoloLearn and started to practices while I was on commute. Some time later I completed the course, and Hey! Actually the final certificate feels like a good and well deserved rewards for completing the corse.
Here is mine [Antonio SoloLearn Python Certificate].
Learning by doing and practice often
So, after that, it really boosted my Python 3 skill when i started the fun project Stranger Things Alphabet Wall Lights.
With a fun challenge and with some physical visual result I felt is a lot more engaging.

while loops and
