I had tried to learn some languages using online resources on the net(freely accessible ones tho). Didn’t actually commit to it with a plan.
Curious on how others went about it.

Do mention the resources that you liked/found useful.

    The usual, some introductory books and then some more advanced for my needs. As an actuarie, the languages more useful for me were R and Python, I chose Python because is more versatile for things beyond data sciences. If you said your specific needs, maybe someone can give you a guide from where to start.

      I know some Python, but have never gone beyond normal stuff.

      I have downloaded online pdf’s on Python. Sometimes I read it without trying it out and forget how it is used. Or just jump into something and get confused. When I try to read code on github, I take some time to understand what the functions do and stuff.
      Maybe I’m learning on and off, and it’ll take time.

      Currently, I’m trying out stuff using Gcollab and it seems to be fun and easy to access, since I grew up using a phone more than a pc/laptop.

      What method/plan did you use?
