Meh to heck with it: I'm more motivated to dive back in to and learn by osmosis than forcing my way through and .

@bthall I have formed the attitude that programming is learned best with everyday practical problems, and then you learn the theory within this context. You then realize what is relevant to know in terms of theory because you can then see how it fits into the true picture of what you want to do.

@zacts I like that! I hope that that'll let things stick for me when I eventually get around to Python.

Not yet. I figure I need to learn some Python before I jump into Django

@jim orly? Have you done many courses on there? I think the last time I saw your posts, you were doing ...?

I have completed a few of the shorter courses, like how to use git but I have yet to cross the line on the big important ones. I had life get in the way in November and am just now starting up again

@jim Which course are you going to do? There's a couple with Python/Django

I was doing FreeCodeCamp for a while but it didn't work for me. Courses done or on my to-do list are Colt Steele's Web Developer Bootcamp 1and 2, he has one on Python/Django also.i will be doing Python/Django: From Zero to Hero (or something like that), and a mish-mash of stuff like how to use git and howto pick your nose so your finger doesn't get icky. Steele is my fave instructor so far though

@bthall Wow, I had the opposite experience. Did a couple of years of Django, then a couple years of Rails, and couldn't *wait* to get back to Django. Feels so much more logical/intuitive to me.

@shacker That's great to hear! Since I posted the post you're replying to, I've kinda fallen in love with and the Python community, so I'll be looking into more. 😙
