What's it like to be a beginner in software development? How about learning Python for the first time? This episode is a special panel episode and is the first of a two-part series we are doing on the podcast called Beginners and Experts.

On this first episode, we have a conversation between beginners and experts and how we can close the gap to help beginners get up to speed as quickly as possible. Our panelists are Karly Sindy, Joy Dantong Ma, Tsitsi Flora Munikwa, and Ned Batchelder.
