Login or purchase this course to watch this video and the rest of the course contents.
0:00 In this video I want to introduce you to the PyBites Code Challenges Platform. If you head over to codechalleng.es
0:10 you're presented with this home page. We designed our Code Challenges platform because we are strong believers in learning by doing and the best way
0:18 to learn Python is to write a lot of code. First, let's log in with GitHub. When you log in you're redirected to the dashboard. You have a leaderboard
0:33 the bites you have earned but what's relevant for this course is that we have 100 Days Of Python section. If you go there, there are a couple
0:41 of grids and to follow along with this course we made a talkPython_web template. And here you see all the course materials spread out over a 100 days.
0:59 You can start the 100 days by clicking start button. This will create a project or as we like to call it, grid and every day you can Tweet out
1:11 your progress and mark items complete. The Tweet is already formatted to show the work you are going to do today #Python, the day number
1:23 and copy in @pybites and @talkPython so that we are notified on Twitter. Then you can mark the items complete. This way you're working towards
1:38 100% completion of the course. This is totally optional but we noticed that having a tracker can be very efficient to persist
1:47 and the Tweeting part is a nice way to share your work and to work with accountability partners. A great way to share your progress
1:56 is to join our Slack community. There are some great Pythonistas there sharing the work and you can always ask questions
2:03 if you get stuck with the course. To join our community, just head over to settings, confirm your email and use the join PyBites Slack button.
2:20 By default you will join the code challeng.es and the general channel but we also have 100 Days of Code channel which is a dedicated channel for people
2:31 taking a challenge. Well, that's that. We hope you enjoy the course and use our platform to stay on track. Have fun and learn a lot of Python and web.
2:45 Keep calm and code in Python.
