    I've completed the Codecademy course for Python and I have a little extra understanding. I'd like to push myself, so if anybody could give me a project to do, that'd be great.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Try exploring outside interactions with Python. E.g. databases, requests from the internet and the like. What you would want to do is try to expand the use of Python and not confine to a local script.

    What I would do is look at the possible routes and uses of Python. I mean it is a flexible language and where I am not a professional or an expert to comment but nevertheless trying to parse documents from the internet or setting up handling databases is key to many programs.

    E.g. You might want to look up the requests module (it is amazing for parsing/retrieving information from the internet and vice versa - sending it off as well). Try looking up web technologies which allow interactions between users e.g. RTMP/flash or other popular protocols and also see if Python has an any relation to its use. A really good starting place for all this is GitHub.
