    Paul. looking forward to your new series of classes on Python. Enjoyed the series on Using Arduino with Python. It is great that you are putting these lessons together in the format you do. Where did you get your teaching certificate? You do a great job and make learning so enjoyable and understandable. Jumping ahead a little, what reference would you recommend for Matplotlib? Want to go a little further than what you presented in order to be able to make plots having multiple Y axis while keeping the same X axis. For example, make a single plot which shows balloon height, speed, temperature, and pressure as a function of time with 4 corresponding Y axis. I hope you continue to create Youtube videos after your move to your coffee plantation.

    You started me on Python in the Jetson Nano series. I've gone beyond and sought other extended Python tutorials and it's a great programming language. Better than C++, C#, Javascript, and like you say, it's free!

    I'm also excited about the python lessons. I use a software call trimble business center for surface modeling highway construction projects. The software lets you add you own macros written in iron python. I don't know anything about python. Do you know if iron python is close enough to your version in your new lessons to be helpful in that?

    Paul, I have been TRYING to learn Fusion 360 from your tutorials. I did the design for the glasses case, followed the lesson to the letter, HOWEVER, when I 3d printed the parts don't fit. I have checked and checked all the parameters and they ALL match whit the design you created. What am I missing here? At this point looks like I'm going to DIE trying.

    P.S. I am asking here because the lessons are so old I didn't want to ask there for fear of no responce.

    Best to you on your move! Sounds exciting. My dream is to live in the desert of Arizona some day. I found your arduino videos recently. I enjoy them & am learning a lot. I don't have a natural ability, but have always been interested, so I am trying to learn the best I can.

    Looking forward to the new lessons:) I gave your older Python lessons a try but was having version compatibility issues and gave it up. Very best of luck in your upcoming move.

    Hey Paul maybe you could buy Starlink in the US and take it with you to Africa? That will solve your internet problems. Check it out, they're in beta and selling to people in US. I'm super excited for python, lets go deep and become pros!

    A tad confused here Paul, as I'm sure that you said you were going to Kenya. As far as I can tell, the Nile River, including the Blue and White tributaries do not pass through Kenya, although there may be other rivers that do, finding their way to Lake Victoria?

    in the kind of part of Africa you describe, you might also get the opportunity to add IoT to agriculture or wildlife.

    Hey!! Have you ever thought on teaching Scilab or GnuOctave instead of Mathlab? They're rather the same. In fact, I once heard that Scilab was the open source version of Mathlab.

    Thanks Paul. Blessings on your move. Your timing is great. 2021 I am worried about inflation and dollar devaluation. Moving rural is a great move. Look forward to hearing from you across the pond

    Looking forward to your broadcast from Africa. By the way, if you ever give a lesson on adjusting the setpoint on a temperature controller using two pushbuttons. It is to control a 220v pressure fryer. Thanks! (I'm an ol' Abilene, Texas boy and lived in Lubbock.)

    Just wanna say, you've been kind of an inspiration for me.
    Been learning lot from you in your Arduino tutorials, I also watch your bible channel and I have been enriched by both.
    Thank you for putting your stuff out there for us.
    Ever since I ended up partaking in your courses, I've started regaining direction in my life I never should have let go.

    Watching the video now…a couple of question: So will you have an agency here in the US supporting you? I mean, tax exempt status where people in the US can make donations? Also, are you a ham radio operator? What kind of radio communications are over there in your area?

    Hi Paul, SciLab is alternative to MATLAB, XCos is free alternative to Simulink for model based electronics system design.
