What are the necessary packages to be installed on atom for python development?
A good starting point
It could be a little old, and may miss some packages, but it should serve to get you started.
Thanks for the suggestion!!
I am beginner to programming but intend to one day become a full stack
developer. So, can you please suggest me free online resources that could
you help me in it?
I started python with codecademy.
There is also a site called Project Euler with ~600 problems that can be solved by a combination of maths and programming. These little exercises can also keep you motivated to learn new things about Python and programming in general.
