Nothing is wrong with that attitude, some even became presidents that way! Welcome to Python ;)

Not really a new user, but I've been gone for a while.
I would hope at least a few people remember me.

I've been having some personal issues lately, but hopefully I'll be able to participate in the discussions regularly relatively soon.
Looking forward to rejoining the community.

Hey there, I've been dabbling in python for close to 6 months now. I'm hooked by the simple syntax. Python is like a breath of fresh air after being stuck learning C++ in high school!
DDD - Welcome and enjoy

I'm new to both the forum and to Python. In fact, I probably wouldn't have a desire for any of this were it not for an idea that I had for work. 

We use these old 10-key calculators to take inventory and they're constantly breaking. So, like an idiot, I had an idea - why not build a version of that with Raspberry Pi 3 and Python and then we could reduce cost while having repairs be both in-house and modular, and step away from proprietary and expensive software and just extract our data into Access / Excel like a normal rational person. I've noticed that the Python syntax is really straightforward and reminds me a lot of VBA and how I structure functions in Excel (which is more my wheelhouse than anything else at the moment). 

So.... here I am.... burning in like a rock through the atmosphere, ready to learn Python and a few other things I never knew I wanted to know. 

Ambitious? probably. 
Attainable in a six to seven month scope? probably not. 

Still going to work toward it? yep.

I mean, the worst that can happen is that I keep my job (because I'm an auditor, not a programmer by trade) and I learn something useful that can be applied in the same sense after the invisible deadline. Win/Win.

I like your attitude. Continue and you will succeed.
