Hi Warren & Carter

I've been interested in beginner Python programming books for my kids, so thank you for contributing to the options out there!

I find the beginner end of the market has a decent amount of content, but less so as you move towards an intermediate skill level. Do you have any resource recommendations for kids as their python programming improves and they're looking for resources that will challenge them at the next level?

Cheers,
Greg

Hi Greg,

Once you've learned the basics of programming, what you do next really depends on what kind of programming you're interested in. You can learn to make games, or iPhone apps, or websites, or anything else you can think of!

I don't have any intermediate-level books to recommend off the top of my head, but we list a few websites to check out in Chapter 27 of the book. Here are a few more that I personally like:

- If you want to make web servers in Python: https://flask.palletsprojects.com/en/1.1.x/tutorial/#tutorial

- If you want to make Game Boy Advance games (I am probably the only one who wants to make Game Boy Advance games): https://www.coranac.com/tonc/text/toc.htm

- If you want to try fancy algorithm and math problems, like big tech companies ask in their job interviews: https://leetcode.com/

If anyone else has any intermediate programming resources they like, feel free to post them here!

- Carter

Hi Carter

Thanks for the recommendations! The question is more for my kids than for myself and they're at different stages. I'm not sure how far it will go for either of them - just looking ahead in case their interest accelerates.

Cheers,
Greg
