WOW! this is so cool!
First, I have just found a Python tutor for my 10 years old son and I hope that I can also learn with him along this process. I had not heard about Pycharm before last week.
Second, I am also seeking to change my career path in middle age. Like you, I learned about BASIC while I was very young with enthusiasm but somehow did not continue to code ever since.
Last, I have also thought about learning to code with a clear target and Hive seems to be a perfect place to do that. 😊
So, thank you for sharing and I definitely will benefit a lot from your future sharing.
