Hello everyone! I am new here and this is my first post.

I found Mosh on YouTube and decided to give his Complete Python Mastery course a try. Before a couple of days ago I had zero Python experience. However I do have quite a bit of experience in MATLAB from university courses for my Mechanical Engineering degree.

In my experience it seems everyone kind of makes fun of MATLAB calling it a joke of a language and what not. However after completing 30% of Mosh’s Python Mastery course 90% of the information is very consistent with what I know from MATLAB except for syntax obviously.

Things like data types, if statements, while loops, for loop (nested for loops) are all concepts I am very familiar with as well as indexing variables in lists (in MATLAB we called them arrays). Most of my coding in MATLAB was used for solving complex mathematical models with a few fun little projects like a basic image editor/photoshop type program which was really just a bunch of matrix manipulations of the original image data to get your desired effect.

I guess my question is should I skip this basic mastery course and move on to more advanced topics? I’m sure later in the course Mosh will get into more advanced topics I am not familiar with but up to this point everything he has taught are concepts I am quite familiar with. It has really only been helpful for learning basic syntax differences and writing cleaner code so far.
