My name is Meenakshy Kurup. I completed my graduation in computer science and started my career as a software engineer. I was introduced into the corporate world as a python developer and now its been two years of my career working with Python and Django. In my journey of learning i was too often to make mistakes especially during my initial days and i believe its okay as mistakes are meant to be the best guide ever. Im writing this article to share some of my thoughts and experiences about programming and some of the common mistakes you might confront on your way of coding.
