  1. Hi Man,

    Muchas Gracias Mi Amigo! You make learning so effortless. Anyone can follow you and I would not mind following you to the moon coz I know you are like my north star.

    I’m doing a master thesis in Finance so I decided to learn python in order to make things simpler.
    I have learned the basics but my question stands in the possibility to python read a folder
    full of pdf files and search for specific key words.
    This is probably a beginner question, but any help regarding the subject would be extremely valuable.

    Great effort, I wish I saw it earlier. Would have saved my day 🙂

    Thanks and Regards
    Irene Hynes
