Snapes and Harry Potter?

Never thought I’d hear learning Python to be associated with Harry Potter. But great to know. The contents in the sessions are well thought out. The series progresses in excellent fashion. Although I am only listening to the podcast I look forward to the video version as well. Dr. Severance knows his stuff! Thanks!
