Is this the place for this kind of thing?

So I started learning python this week after someone posted about the site codedademy. It's so far proven a great way to learn for where I am. However I decided to download an IDE to practice some of the stuff I'm learning before moving on (with a little google involved for some extra syntax help).

The thing is I don't know if I'm not googling right, because sometimes I feel like what I'm wanting to add is probably a very simple command I could add but always hit super complicated explanations online when googling.

So I'm looking to see if there's a tribe where you could post a discussion with some of your code included in the text section and then others are able to look at your question and take it within the context of what you have coded. They'd also be able to discern a rough idea of your level of understanding from the code they see.

I mean it may well be that the advice is, "This is beyond what you have learnt, keep learning and you'll get there." However there is also a lot of fun and sense of achievement to see a small challenge/project completed (even if just done as practice and learning) .

    Hi there!

    Just as a FYI, you can cross post into multiple tribes at once - no need to post multiple times for different tribes. Part of the learning curve, but I thought I'd let you know! :)

      Ya I was trying to look for the other tribes option that you usually see with posting snaps (I even hit edit a few times and moved from my phone to my laptop to see if I missed something haha) but couldn't find it so I figured it wasn't something meant for discussion posts. :P

      You can't do it for text posts, only for snaps.

    Confirmed. You can create a text post, then share the link to the post as a snap. Did that for you: http://snapzu.com/joker/question-about-learning-python

      Thanks, it seems the general suggestion I have received is to post one text post then snap that post to the following tribes..

      /t/programming; /t/python; /t/programminghelp; /t/codelearners; /t/learnpython; /t/learnprogramming;

      I must say, with the ability to link multiple tribes to a post, it seems to be blurring the individual purposes of each tribe, which seems to be having the side result of the users spreading over lots of small similar based tribes rather than one tribe for a fixed purpose. In other words, the answer to my question wasn't this is the particular tribe to post to but rather, post to all the python/programming learning tribes. :P

        Lol. That suggestion was mine :D
