@Codingforfun123 Hi,
Welcome to your new life of Coding...
Coding is like learning a new language and it needs a lot more patience than learning a normal talking language!
Being an absolute beginner, you have to overcome a lot of difficulties in coding...
You Should not quit-up easily when you saw that red lines on your console(errors!).
My formula for teaching someone to code:
Take a language, Stick to it, Never Back-Step, Solve your Red Lines calmly, Understand and Tolerate them, Be patient for your wonderful results in the future, And you will be a successful programmer, That's it!

It seems like you are learning Python
Here are some great tutorials for Python

@Codingforfun123 No, If you want to learn, You should.
That was my first tutorial of Python in my life.
I got all the fundamentals of Python from those videos.
Thanks!

This is mostly for later, but take a break if you need to. Oftentimes I'll think of a solution to a problem in my code if I'm not looking at a screen.

my tip is to start of simple common errors in python for beginners are forgetting to add a colon at the right times(syntax_error (syntax is basically the list of commands that are a part of a language)) this crashes the program in most cases), logic errors (when the code doesn't go according to plan in the proggrammers eyes for example wantin to print("Hello World!) but instead it prints ("!dlroW olleH"), does not crash the program)),and indention errors (indents are spaces or tabs in front of a command if that makes sense) remember that everyone starts somwhere and don't get demotivated if things go wrong. Hope this helped

@JosephSanthosh When does @MKWounderland 's class start? I asked there, but no-one is getting back to me. Thanks.

@JosephSanthosh Hey, I know this is the last min, but how will this work? like classes? will we just use comments to speak or?

JosephSanthosh (1140)

@Codingforfun123 So the classes will be taught through a repl and if you have any questions you go to the questions file and ask your question.

Codingforfun123 (0)

@JosephSanthosh Just if MK is in a different time zone I won't know when the classes are. Yes, I'm Justin and I've never do this before.

JosephSanthosh (1140)

@Codingforfun123 Ok, so you don't have to be in the same time zone or time as MK because the repl will always be there and you can see what he wrote and taught.

look at tutorial, go on the web to look for tutorials, and play around! over time, you get to know how this language works! check out my projects, but only turtle python related, but you'll still learn something soon. Hope this helps. Please mark this as answered if this helps!
