The key to making anything a habit, including learning to program, is to make it fun. That's exactly what Anna-Lena Popkes did with her 100 days of code challenge. She created a magical universe where Python-derived creatures and castles live.

Join us on this episode as we explore some of the Python concepts she encountered on her journey as well as how she made her way to Microsoft Research in the UK where she is doing an AI Residency.
