Welcome to Python!
As a student, you will be wondering:
“Why do I need to deal with Python and programming? I am a psychologist!“
The answer is

Also, coding makes you smarter! (well, kind of)
Figure 1: In the last years, Python has become the most used coding language, from Data Analysis to Research.
It is definitely a CV booster, even for psychologists.

What is the best way to learn to code?
There is no perfect answer to this, but in my experience, the best way is to borrow other people's code and edit it until you understand it and it works for you (ask me for demos). Often you do not have to code everything from scratch, but only change a bit previous versions ;-)
In addition, also running tutorials (doing the exercises in real-time) can be a very good way to familiarize yourself with the coding language.
