I started on Coursera with UofM’s Python for everybody. You have to be resourceful once you get beyond syntax, basic data structures, but Coursera is a good place to start. Stackoverflow, Reddit will you be your best friends once you get into more complex code and data handling.

M1 - I am starting with How to automate the boring stuff with Python.. Both the book and videos are available online for free. I have only completed a few chapters myself so far, so can't tell you if it's a good resource or not. Hopefully some of the experts can chip in with other suggestions!!

This is dumb. The best way to learn is to practice and an iPad even with a keyboard is a poor substitute for a development environment. Just buy a smaller laptop if you do it often when flying with limited space. The GPD pocket 2 is very nice.

Reading and watching is great, but ime you get more out of your time when you can try things out while listening.

On a tangent... what is the best way to learn python. Any tips on website, classe, etc? Thanks in advance

Thanks OP, will check it out!

HI everyone. I very recently joined PwC as a Technology Consultant (I moved over from a big tech company where I was in business development and solution engineering), but my goal is to be in an internal role that isn't client-facing and is more projects- / ops-based. What opportunities are there at PwC for this? Which LOBs should I look into? Is there anyone I should reach out to?
