Learning over productivity.

No one should be hesitant to ask for help because they think they
would be breaking someones flow. We are not there to get things done,
we are there to learn.

It should be restricted to learning Python.  It is easy to get
derailed into trying to install Linux, or html/css browser problems.
It's great that a bunch of people are learning random things, but if
we hare concentrating on something other than Python, we are not
learning Python.
