Why is everyone making Python tutorials

elipie
elipie

ok i kinda get it... they are good at the language and they want to show others how good they are at the language. Oh and sometimes help people out

but fr, most of us(all of us) know python so well we could teach a two year old... and its just clogging up the tutorial suggestion and blocking it from tutorials people actually need.

Some of you might say: "Oh well it helps the people who are just joining"

But again, really? A lot of people are join from schools that already have classes, or if they aren't, there are millions of sorry for this better tutorials out there, no offense.

I mean sure, some tutorials contain something that you originally didn't know, but, you would learn if you keep coding and coding and coding.

Sorry for rant, just wanted to ask this

I honestly think it has to do with wanting cycles.

People want cycles so much, they decide to reinvent the wheel Python tutorial to get upvotes...

Really, why don't you make a tutorial on machine learning in Python.

If you think all the tutorials on a thing are crappy and not in detail, sure go ahead and make your own tutorial on that.

However, there are many well documented Python tutorials, it's much better to just leave that alone and make your own tutorial on a new thing that no one has documented yet, or make a tutorial that explains a subject better than another tutorial so as to help people out more.

well im not saying python tutorials in general are bad, like the one advanced concepts one helped me a lot... just the ones about the "basics"

I know! I can't find any good ML tutorials that are friendly (ML quite complex)

oh the ones about 'basics' generally tells you a lot about the person.

If they are implying cycles, they want cycles. Otherwise, you can tell they probably are new to python, and just want to help others

I don’t think it’s cycle related I mean obviously the person making the tutorial wants some cycles but if someone truly wanted cycles then they would try to do something else. And that’s kind of why I think everyone makes python tutorials just because they know it and it is a common language and etc reasons.

It's really easy to just post what you know, which is why people make lots of python tutorials - they know enough about Python to make a "Python basics" tutorial.

Yeah, I guess they are just polite and want to teach people what they know, but some people just do it for the cycles.

Heck, even I'm falling for the cycles now (although I don't post random garbage, I still ensure quality tutorials).

I literally just whipped up a tutorial about something no one has probably made a tutorial about here...

Exactly!

I think it is also because it is so easy to make Python Tutorials.

I guess Python is popular? It's easy I guess.

This is the general thought process.

  1. See someone's tutorial reach 20+ Cycles.
  2. Learn just enough python to teach to someone else.
  3. Make tutorial on print statements and variables.
  4. Have a net profit with 100+ internet points.

TBH just wanting cycles. There are a million python tutorials that are literally the barebone basics like variables, print, input, if, loop, not even functions. They just want the cycles bc there are lots of newbies on replit that don't know much about Python and upvote it like flies. It's very rare that another equally useful programming language, like JS or C++ get a tutorial on replit, and even if one is made it gets roughly 0 upvotes.

Yeah, I get that, if your making a python tutorial that is just teaching someone python that been pretty overdone here, but if your making a tutorial on how to do something in python that there isn't many tutorials on, then I think it's fine to make them
