The Hard Way

I’m about a third of the way Learn Python the Hard Way.  Progress has been uneven but generally forward.  I’m in a frustrating position.  I’ve learned a fair bit of actual programming in web environments (Code Academy, Khan Academy, whatever) but no command line whatsoever.  Hard Way jumps immediately into command line.  I’m glad for that but the book is more self-directed than I expected.  Programmers need to be independent, but it could be more balanced between “baby steps” and “here, go look this up”.  Okay, that’s enough whining.  On to module review.
