Using the Mac Terminal: As it relates to Python Programming

WOWZER! What a ride! I just finished the crash course on using the Mac Terminal. If you are a LINUX Guru then this should be a breeze for you. I never have much played around with the terminal but after my mind blowing ride through the course on MAC Terminals called, “Learn Code the Hard Way“, I am endowed with a new sense of confidence, a slightly higher IQ, and insomnia….but hey it brings me closer to the end-game.

I could go through everything that I learned but it would take hours for me to do so. I highly recommend going into the online book, “Learn Code the Hard Way“, and just hammer through it like I did.

Tips For Coming Out Alive

  • Follow the instructions to the “T”
  • Pay Attention to the Details
  • If he says do something…do it…no matter what you know or how silly it may sound
  • if he says not to do something….DON’T DO IT….that simple
  • Stay encouraged…there is light at the end of the tunnel
  • Take breaks when you find yourself making a lot of typos
  • Spread it out over several days so you really absorb the material…I did the rushed version of studying and you too may be a quick study, but I will be going back from time to time
  • After you have completed all of the excercises….take a break and do them all again.
  • When you are finished download the cheat sheet for quick referneces
  • Finally pray for wisdom! Although that should always be a first on your list.

Next time…we are going to really dig in to Python!
