Has anybody seen this? It looks idea for people looking to get into programming using Python. It's a course aimed at total beginners that's been funded via Kickstarter. You can find it by searching for "Python 101: Python Programming for Absolute Beginners" on there. It looks ideal for people like me who are just dipping my toe in but want to get serious about programming.
Isn't Python 2 about to drop out of support? Or perhaps has done so already?
Python 2 went officially End-of-Life beginning January 2021. It is no longer pre-installed in many recent Linux distros, including Fedora. It has significant differences with Python 2 and they have 2 separate code repositories. Probably not since Visual Basic became VB.Net has there been such disruption in languages.
In fact, the primary reason why I started my project to implement the Gourmet Recipe Manager as a JEE application was that Thomas Hinkle's original version was written in Python 2 and it appears that flatpak-packaging isn't isolated enough from the core OS to keep running as various parts are shuffled out (it also couldn't print from within flatpak).
Just as an aside, I do have my spin-off of that project pretty much complete as far as recipe management goes. I'm working on supporting shopping lists now. Check my thread on Meaningless Driver for progress reports.
