IAAC - Day 159 Python: The Programming Language not the Snake

in #ctp3 months ago

Today is Monday, November 8th and I am happy to be alive.

When I had first started college, I took several computer courses and started learning a few programming languages like Cobol and Fortran. Having a working knowledge of computers in combination with accounting helped me get my first job in 1986 when unemployment was around 7% higher than what the rate is currently running.

I always loved the computer parts of my job. In my last job, I played a large role in the integration of our Material Inventory Accounting System after our company merged with another one. We had sprints and used the Agile process instead of Waterfall. Even thought I was an Accountant, all of my jobs had a connection to the computer systems that were used in the companies at which I worked.

I am now retired but as a person that loves to continuously learn and also as an avid reader I have decided to learn a new language. It was suggested that I check Python out. For those of you who do not know, it is not a snake but a programming language.

Python For Beginners by Timothy C. Needham was a book that I had downloaded several months ago but never got around to reading. That was about the time I started on the Hive Blockchain so all my focus has been on growing my account up until now. So I start a new part of my Journey. Wish me luck.

Also, I am sharing a few photos of today's sunset.

There's a hive account @learncode that teaches some things with Hive...how to interact with the blockchain. You might want to take a look and I need to take more looks and get back to it. !LUV






@darmst5339, you've been given LUV from @crrdlx.

Check the LUV in your H-E wallet. (2/5)

Thanks for sharing this information. I will check out that account. Take care.

Python is definitely the programming language that I want to master. I started to study it several times but always got sidetracked. The great thing is that there are nice python libraries that allow you to interact with the hive blockchain!

Thanks for the information. It is good to know when I learn it I can use it with hive

Thank you it is appreciated

I was a programmer at one time, currently, as a reseller, I have always planned on learning python but like so many have procrastinated the effort in favor of income-producing actions.

Awesome pictures of your sunset :-)

Share your python learning journey with us :-)

Thanks. Yes I have well procrastinated about learning about the new programming stuff. As I go I will try to keep everyone posted

Awesome looking forward to it :-)

Fantastic that you will be learning Python David, it's a great language and IMO the best option to interact with Hive, plus it has good libraries for it, check below and stay !ALIVE


Thanks for the links. I will write them down so once I get further I can check them out. Take care.


They have very good documentation too.
