#100DaysOfCode, Day 004

Realised I am woefully underprepared for the #100DaysOfCode in Python course.
That does not mean that I’m going to give up on the project however.
I am just dropping down and getting fluent with the basics with the Python Jumpstart course.
I aim (very optimistically) to complete an app every 3 days.
This should give me #130DaysOfCode 😂

What did I do today?

  • I finished App 1: Hello (you Pythonic) world
  • Done with the videos for App 2: Guess that number game.

What did I learn?

  • I am a slow learner. It took me two hours to watch and understand (play, get confused, rewind, play … repeat ad nauseam.) I must also be the only one who watches videos at slower than playback speed 😝
  • Program flow is not quite like what I imagined.
    A program does not execute top to bottom.
    The python genie must be reading all my statements and figuring out the order somehow.
  • Learnt conditionals. If this happens, do this. Otherwise do that.

Will know how much I learn when I actually write the program tomorrow.

In other news

I hit all my September goals. Only because of my health issues they turned into September & October goals 😂

  • I do all my basic editing in Emacs
  • I type horribly at 30 wpm in Dvorak. (I’m really happy. My arms and fingers and nerves no longer hurt)
  • I walk 10,000 steps most days

Ciao for now. More tomorrow!
