# Goals for Oct 15th

We're starting a series of Python courses on [Lynda.com](https://www.lynda.com/learning-paths/Developer/become-a-python-developer)!
Learning path: _Become a Python Developer_

* [Washington county library](https://www.wccls.org/research/lyndacom)
* [Vancouver regional library](http://www.fvrl.org/resource/lyndacom)
