I have a decent understanding of python, however in order to advance I definitely need to learn.
I have tried to use wikis, youtube, etc and coding whilst reading/watching, but for me it just doesn't stick.
I then thought "I'll just do what I can and ask the community for help." (hoping to give back in future) but again, not a great experience.
Despite accurately conveying what my problem is, what I've tried, and what I need to fix, the forums I have used (particularly the python community on stackoverflow) have consistently landed so far from my question that several times I have rewritten my post to redirect the reader to the actual issue I have as opposed to "don't do it like that, use this module". The "that" they refer to is pretty much the entirety of python I know, and "this module" tends to be something that almost seems designed to scare off beginners.
Is there a forum where if I ask a question it will be answered? Is there (ideally free, but I can pay a little) software for PC or mobile that aids in learning more than just the basic python functionality?
