So I'm trying to learn Python mostly for fun but also to prepare for graduate school next year (i'm going into a quantitative neuroscience program this fall where it will help a lot to be familiar with programming ahead of time).
The problem is I can't seem to find a good resource for learning python. I've read through some python books, I've attempted to go through the python tutorial on python.org but I can't seem to stay focused enough to learn much.
I know the really basic stuff but I lose motivation once I study more complex programming techniques. I know this makes me sound pretty dumb, but in order for me to learn something completely new (like computer programming) I need to have my hand held all the way through the beginning stages. Once I get through that, I'll be fine.
So my question: are there any resources online that present a project in python and then make it super easy to complete? For example, instructions to make a very simple game and then each line of code is presented and explained in detail.
So far I've only found stuff that is too detailed with no goals presented which makes me lose focus easily or projects that are too complex which I have no idea how to start!
I appreciate any advice, thank you!
