Meet Simon! He doesn't have a technology background, but he wants to be a programmer. Should he go to a boot camp with 17k or read 29,900,000 options provided by Google when he searched "Learn Python". Or he can join ChiPy mentorship program.
While all of these will work, I would like to make his journey bit more enjoyable by presenting a more natural, friendlier, and a more interactive way to learn programming concepts. In this talk, we will look at functions, for loops, list comprehensions, and generators in a way that is easy for people like Simon to understand and use.
