 Learning through doing -- Where to get experience??? Open Source Volunteering.
I am trying to figure out how I can continue learning and improving. I have taken python courses and I have a lot of the fundamentals down pat, but the problem is every time I go to create a new program, I run into new problems that I have never seen before and can't seem to figure out on my own. I could certainly use a mentor of some sort, and I think the only way I can continue to learn is if I do Hands-On python projects where I learn from my mistakes from other people. I can only learn so much on my own, and it is becoming difficult. I feel like I don't know much more than I knew a few months ago because my learning has come to a standstill. I'm a kinesthetic learner, and I do best by doing and learning from my mistakes.

1. What is the best way to get more hands-on experience with Python? Should I join open source projects?
2. Also, does anybody on here have a mentor? How would I go about getting a mentor? What are some different ways some of you have gotten mentors?

Like I said, I'm not going to learn much more unless I start building projects and have support from people who have experience and know what they are doing. There's only so much you can look up online and to figure out on your own before you get stuck again.

Also, what are some good open source projects that take volunteers with little coding experience? This would be a great way to get hands-on experience.

If anybody could provide tips and advice, or any good open source projects that are open to taking a newbie, it would be greatly appreciated.
