  1. Corey, your videos are awesome, they cover more than the basics and are explained in a crystal clear way. If I could make a single suggestion it would be to run your codes using the Jupyter notebook. It would be easier to follow and perhaps easier for you to explain. For example, you could write down beforehand the topics in markdown and keep coding according to the topics described beforehand. Thanks anyway for the amazing videos.

  2. Hello, Thanks for the wonderful tutorial. Can you please help me with this expression…I am unable to comprehend it.

    parts = re.split('s|(?<!d)[,.](?!d)', s)

    Thanks!
