I’ve been on and off in using Python as my go-to programming language. In the past 6 of months, I have started researching more about its internals and why they work the way they do. I have read numerous online/offline publications and spent my daily commute listening to Pluralsight‘s Python videos. I’m about an hour to an hour and half away from work so that’s a pretty good time for me to either listen to podcasts or learn. I mostly choose the latter.
Pluralsight has started providing Paths recently. Paths allows a subscriber to pick a topic of interest and Pluralsight provides the list of courses related to the topic. I think this really helps their subscribers streamline their training. One way to measure you are learning is by taking skill assessments and certification practice exams.
And last month, after taking quite a few courses in the Python Path, I decided to take the skill assessment and received a Proficient rating. 3 more points and I could have been an expert. Oh well, the importance is I’ve learned more about the language.
By the way, I am not affiliated with Pluralsight but a happy subscriber.
