Hey Mechanical MOOCers,
We hope you’re enjoying week one of the course. We can guarantee that learning Python will be equal parts exhilaration and exasperation, and we hope you’ll embrace both as a natural part of the learning process.
When you hit the rough parts, we encourage you to read this post by Claudia Scholz, Mech MOOC participant and blogger extraordinaire. Wise words for aspiring programmers.
