New Python User at Saint Leo University

Hello All,

New to Python and am enrolled in a Python programming class. I have had previous programming classes (i.e. C++, Java, etc) and I have always been intimidated by programming and have just found it plain confusing.

I always struggle to ‘see’ the flow of the algorithm or don’t take into account what needs to be factored in.

However, based on our first week of reading assignments and practice with entry-level scripts, Python certainly seems to be more user-friendly.

Hopefully I can grasp this better than my previous programming classes.

Have a great day!

Hello, @dalematlock, and welcome to Python Software Foundation Discourse!

We hope you enjoy the discussions here. You might be interested in taking a look at the following pages:

Also see the great variety of discussions in the popular Users category, where many visitors ask and answer questions about Python.

If at some time, when asking questions or offering replies, you need to post code within these discussions, please format it correctly for posting, so that important details such as indentation are displayed properly. One way to do this is to place lines of three back ticks before and after the code, as follows:

# example code
for i in range(10):
    print("Hello World!")

There is also a </> button at the top of the editing window for formatting code, after it has been selected.
