This week I participated in the #SEOchat discussion on X/Twitter & it was hosted by my teammate Greg Bernhardt.
I will share below the questions and answer I provided on Twitter
Q2: For those learning or working with #Python for SEO, what are some of the hurdles you experienced? #SEOChat
A2: the hardest one for me was making sure I did not miss a comma, a colon or a quote in my code. And not forgetting the indentation of course.
I can confirm that I still have to double check for that
