Had to teach my “Learn Python for Research” PhD course remotely and decided to make the recordings and material publicly available for those interested. Feel free to check it out!

I teach a yearly PhD course on programming with Python for (social science) research. However, this year I had to deliver the course remotely and recorded a bunch of videos to go along with the material (to substitute for in person classes). So I figured to make it publicly available for those that are interested.

It covers five main topics:
* Basic basics
* Handling data with Pandas
* Gathering data from the web with Python
* NLP with Python
* Misc. topics / Best practices

Each topic will come with a accompanying lecture, demonstration recording, and problem notebook.

Read the rules and did a quick search, these didn't seem to be listed.

They all expire in a day or so, some as little as 15 hours at the time of this post.

Get started with Open Source Contributions and earn a T-Shirt

This years Hacktoberfest started yesterday and lasts until the end of the month!

It's a great opportunity to learn about Pull-Requests and get your first contributions to open source projects.

For beginners there are special curated lists of easy pull requests to help get you started. I encourage everyone to sign up and get those 4 Pull Requests for the T-Shirt.

All you need is a GitHub account and basic prior programming experience.

Start here!

*I'm in no way associated to Digital Ocean or the Hacktoberfest, I just think it's a great opportunity to learn and contribute.

Self taught programmer just learned the dumbest but most useful thing. via /r/learnprogramming


Self taught programmer just learned the dumbest but most useful thing.

I just learned how to split up your program into different files and import them all into a main file (at least for Python). I only ever learned what I needed to get the outputs I wanted in a decent fashion and was always frustrated by my long walls of functions to sift through. I'm sure most of you learn this really early on but this is seriously a game changer for me and if you are self taught and possibly a little naive like me maybe this can help you too.

Python programming for beginners via /r/learnprogramming


Python programming for beginners

I have been working on a website for absolute beginners on python and have created tutorials on each beginner topic in detail. This course is interactive and I made it the best UX possible. I have some practice problems with solutions and some interesting codes like Guess game, time conversion, Voice-controlled assistant etc. I am open for any critics/suggestions.

PHP + MySQL Basics: What should a beginner know? via /r/learnprogramming


PHP + MySQL Basics: What should a beginner know?

Hello. I applied for a trainee/intern position which requires basic knowledge in HTML, CSS, PHP and MySQL. I had a brief interview over the phone today and the interviewer told me I need more knowledge to pass their hiring test, and that I‘m welcome to call him back when I learn a bit more. I didn’t realize unfortunately that my knowledge was not enough. My plan right now is to learn some basics of PHP and MySQL (I know HTML and CSS fine) and call them back.

My question is, what are some basics of PHP and MySQL you would expect a beginner to know? Where should I start/stop? The interviewer asked something about PHP algorithms that I couldn’t answer. I panicked so much I even forgot the question… but obviously algorithms is one of the things I’ve got to know.

Sorry if that sounds stupid… I misunderstood their requirements, but I am ready to learn and really want to apply to this position again.

Thank you in advance!

I just solved the first three problems in EloquentJavascript and I feel like a million bucks via /r/learnprogramming


I just solved the first three problems in EloquentJavascript and I feel like a million bucks

TL;DR Took me several hours, but I finally solved the problems on my own, without any kind of help or search engines. My first real taste of what it's like to code.

I know it's not much, but this is the first time I actually put my head down and came up with a solution all on my own. Didn't even read the hints, or look anything up on the internet for any of the problems.

The first one was fairly simple. I had a lot more trouble with the second, the one the author says they fail a lot of people applying for a job on. The third was the hardest, it must have taken me several hours to complete it.

It's a very peculiar experience. I had no idea what I was doing, but as soon as I read the problems I walked around thinking on possible ways I could solve them with what I had just learned. Particularly with the third one, I went through like 7-8 different drafts, each time getting stuck on something and starting a new page to try and come up with a way to get past it. I ended up creating new ways of going about it with each new iteration, and finally I thought I had it, but then 3 more separate times I noticed the program wasn't working right when checking different values.

Anyway, I did it eventually. Programming is fucking nuts, honestly.

I know I'm still early in the book, but I plan to stick with it for as long as I can. I see a lot of people saying it's not good for beginners, but I hope if I read everything multiple times if necessary, I'll be able to solve whatever he gives me. Presumably he teaches all the tools you need for the job. Great book, either way, really recommend it.

These here are the problems(you can also use the site to read/learn from the book, or even copy it to Kindle or whatever – also, for writing down and running the code for the exercises):

Edit: I'm also reading Turing's Vision by Chris Bernhardt right now as a more light kind of literature. It's about Turing's Universal Machines, his "On Computable Numbers, with an Application to the Entscheidungsproblem" paper, the math surrounding all of it, and things like that. It's a very interesting read, I'm learning stuff about Computer Science and its origins. I recommend it; it's a lot of fun. Please share any similar recommendations if you have them(I mean in terms of lighter reading surrounding CS).
