Here's what Python Morsels users have to say about their experience.
I just did my semi-annual review with my supervisor, and realized that in the six months or so I've been doing Morsels, my Python skill levels have significantly improved. I have been a programmer for over 20 years and have deep expertise in C++, Perl, and Bash, but when I signed up for Morsels, I was frustrated at the gaps in my Python knowledge, especially with all its idiosyncrasies. The weekly exercise model really works for me, and now I'm confident handling all the Python problems work throws at me, and feel confident calling myself an intermediate to advanced Python programmer.
Python Morsel might be single-handedly the best learning option for Python regardless of level. Trey Hunner explains everything eloquently and does so in a great order of when and what to learn. Trey is also really responsive to his students, which I love.
I love the fact that you have video and written content to explain concepts. It's super easy to follow along and the screencasts are great. I need to be more disciplined about doing the weekly exercises but those are good options as well.
I would highly recommend Python Morsels to anyone who wants to learn Python or anyone who wants to refresh their skills as a developer.
During my study of Python, I used various programming challenge sites. I came across Python Morsels via the Python package on the Humble Bundle. I can say for sure that this is the best challenge site I have ever come across, not only in terms of the challenges but also in the form of additional material support on your blog. There are many websites with similar programming challenges nowadays, but yours is certainly distinguished by the fact that the tasks are really thought out, created by a person with a passion for what he does. You are great at what you do.
I was hesitant about paying for Python Morsels given how many free learning resources there are. But it was definitely worth it. I've learnt more from Python Morsels than anything else, by far.
What I appreciate most are Trey's explanations: deep enough to give real understanding, but still accessible and concise. The exercises are well-designed, the interface is nice, and Trey is trustworthy.
This is the best Python learning resource I've found.
I didn't knowing what I would receive or whether it would be worth the money before signing up. I'm glad I signed up. It's been worth every penny.
I've enjoyed the option to practice and learn from a variety of sources, the great quantity of exercises, the different levels, and the variety of explanations in each exercise. The reminders and the option to return and practice previous challenges have also been great.
Python Morsels is a great way to learn and practice Python.
Overall I have to admit that I'm blown away by the usefulness of your weekly exercises. There is nothing academic about them and they seem to be applicable to many situations. In addition, the exercises are simple enough to follow the basic concepts while the bonus sections provide depth to keep me busy for the week. Thanks again for your great training!
I got this week's exercise and completed the code quickly. It worked, passed all the tests. Seemed too trivial. I knew there had to be a python angle... but what? I tried to do it cleanly, using slicing and splitting and string formatting... but refactoring to achieve sum of comprehension never occurred to me. Your write-up always turns on new light bulbs and makes me smile. Thank you!
