Study, Day 7

Was on a roll. Went and finished the whole geography textbook. My brains are smoking now. Next step, spaced repetition exercises of all the chapters for two months. MITx, 6.00.1x, Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python Did quite a bit of the course’s exercises. I realise now that I should have just downloaded the course from the Open Courseware site and worked on it at my own pace....

Study, Day 6

Did a little bit of french and geography. MITx, 6.00.1x, Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python Doing compsci but no notes today, because i am busy learning. Am going to have to revisit oop sometime again. will make notes then But to summarise, i learnt oop i learnt about generators, which to me sounds like a tap on a loop. instead of a bucket of water, i get it by the mug....

MITx, 6.00.1x, Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python exceptions & assertions Exceptions What happens when program execution comes across something that it did not expect? like you could go beyond the bounds of a list i try to reference a variable that isn’t there i mix data types. (i dun dis :P 'a'/9) This is basically Python telling me, ‘I don’t get this!...

Study, Day 4

Back at it after a short personal break. Lots of stuff to catch up on! MITx, 6.00.1x, Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python Learning about lists. They are iterable, i can run through its elements one by one and do stuff mutable, i can change things inside them append, will append stuff to the end extend, will take another iterable (another list, for example) and then take those elements one by one, and tack them on the the end of this one i can go back and forth, between lists and strings, converting one to the other and vice versa...
