Thanks for this inspirational article! May this serve as a guide and inspiration to the python beginners out there. I too made a similar mistake of watching but not doing (using CS50 and Datacamp). Python is not easy language to learn and you miss stumble, you will fail, you will get frustrated. But this is a wonderful community to be in and us volunteers are here to clarify your doubts when you need us.

We will learn together and from each other and become better Data Scientist/Analyst/Engineers/People together!
Here is the article by the way if you would like to have a read:
