Hi! So, i want to learn how to code.
And, since im a beginner, i decided to start with Python.
But, im having quite a bit of difficulty.
i looked up things for beginners to try and do, and was immediately overwhelmed.
i know some basics due to having some tech-y friends in the past, like typing certain things. but, not much. i know like... print "Hello, world!" and ive been trying a few exercises from www.learnpython.org and i have been completing them easily, but still find it very confusing.
like, i understand how to type something, but when it comes to "Play rock paper scissors with the computer" (an actual one i tried to do) i failed miserably. i almost think i 5 year old could have a better attempt.
So, for anyone that knows this, any advice or videos or tutorials or ANYTHING would be helpful!
Links, programs (like, interpreters or code editors/text editors that are free and easy to use) would be useful
And, advice or descriptions, videos, definitions, anything really. i want to learn all i can, to hopefully become good at this.
And, what kind of things can you do with coding? i know you can make games, websites, etc. but is there anything you can do besides the obvious?
Sorry for this being so long! If i have it in the wrong spot, please tell me!
Thank you for reading all of this, and your replies would be very helpful :)
@TheSmartOne Do you know anything about python and coding and stuff?
See the MIT courseware on Introduction to Computer Science. Also, the see the book by Allen Downey at this site http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/
