Hi everybody,
question: is it unprofessional copy a code instead of memorizing every step even if you know how it works?
Thanks and good day!

Hi Luigi,
Thanks for reaching out!
A well-known secret among programmers is that everyone is  ‘checking’ other people’s code (or stackvoerflow/stackexchange). It is not shameful to admit to yourself that you can’t come up with a solution to a certain issue.
That said, to become better/more proficient, you should always try to do it yourself and only check when you are having difficulties.
If remembering the syntax is your issue, then don’t worry! That’s not really a problem. Syntax is like language – if you use certain functions regularly, you will eventually remember them.

Thanks a lot for the advice! ….true…the question is I’ve just started with Python, with no experience in coding, and It is already a Universe!….thanks again!
