A Hundred Days of Code, Day 025

To get over the hump of just blindly following videos, and after some talking over with Kushal, we got to me solving problems that he would gimme.

So now I can alternate between a regular path and real world practice.
The first couple were about using psutil to do various things.
The first one would give me back my CPU and memory usage, while the other one gives me what programs are using the network on which ports.
This was fun to do!

Code’s here on Gitlab (1, 2) and on Github (1, 2)


A Hundred Days of Code, Day 024

Done with a new app!
This one is a small app that searches for some text you want, through a folder full of files. I learnt

  • about try / except blocks. this was necessary to catch non text files.
  • learnt about recursive programming. I understand it in principle now. I need more practice.
  • learnt about generators. This too, I get in principle, but need lots more practice.

Code’s here on Gitlab and on Github.


A Hundred Days of Code, Day 022

This probably should be my final day of doing nothing.
Am stretching to finish up something, so that I can then give more time to this #100DaysOfCode endeavour.
Wish me luck.

The #100DaysOfCode stretches A Hundred and Five!

In the vast abyss before time, self
is not, and soul commingles
with mist, and rock, and light. In time,
soul brings the misty self to be.
Then slow time hardens self to stone
while ever lightening the soul,
till soul can loose its hold of self
and both are free and can return
to vastness and dissolve in light,
the long light after time.

— Ursula K. Le Guin, How It Seems to Me
