Python vs Java
posted to Ask by AquaMarine0421

Python!

I recommend Python (3.7 - not 2.7) because of its use in data science. First, python has a simple syntax.

The Zen of Python:

Open a bash terminal
type python3
type import this
read!

Games

Python is a great language to write anything from simple text adventure games to complex ones - all using data collection. In its simplicity, it is the perfect second language (but not a good first language). I recommend learning python from an expert rather than from an online program such as CodeCademy. However, if there is no other way, use CodeCademy.

Alternatives

HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (NOT JAVA) are always a good trio of second or third languages. They are empowering, allowing you to make websites, style them, and power them. These languages are good to learn from CodeCademy, but also good coming from experts if possible.

It's always good to know as many languages as possible, in any order possible (except with python first)

The Fishing Game
posted to Share by AmeliaBlackwell

EDIT:
I never thought I'd say this, but I spent over 40 minutes straight finishing this game. I finished on:

  • day 390
    with:
  • 194040 gold
    and:
  • 11916 bait
    on:
  • level 100.

This is a great use of data storage and analysis in Python.

If I could give this multiple upvotes, I would!

also:

  • just a suggestion: end the game once a player reaches level 100.
  • the error from my original comment has been fixed!
  • once again, great game, @AmeliaBlackwell!

@AmeliaBlackwell:

This is what I'm getting:
would you like to log in or sign up?
sign up
enter username
blahblah
Traceback (most recent call last:
File "main.py", line 782, in <module>
player = log_in()
File "main.py", line 110, in log_in
player = create_account()
File "main.py", line 76, in create_account
if account.name == username:
AttributeError: 'dict' object has no attribute 'name'

Pokémon Battle Game
posted to Share by SuyashAgarwal

Wow! You just started learning Python? This is really advanced! Only a few minor suggestions:

  • allow more time to read each line in the introduction by increasing your t.sleep() value to 4
  • allow more time to read after choosing your primary Pokemon
  • change username to name so that Professor Oak doesn't call you something like bobc1234, etc.
  • place print("") elements between important lines such as the help file confirmation and the Weak Pokemons line.
  • use clear tool more
  • avoid spaghetti code! it makes the program hard to edit and interpret.

since these are just minor OCD things, you're getting an upvote from me anyway!

#minor adjustments

No need for wait(8) here:
print(colored("CyanCoding's BFPC was created as a better version of the PIN Guesser which just fished around for numbers until it found your PIN", "magenta")) wait(8)

and at doneBefore = input(colored("Have you ever used this program before?", "yellow")).lower() just a minor fix: at the end of input string add space

Yes, this should be tweaked a little to prevent the negative integer, 0, or any other integer over 3. Overall great game though!

Try to use colors to make the o's distinguishable from zeros.
HANDLE hConsole = GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE);
// you can loop k higher to see more color choices
for(int k = 1; k < 255; k++)
{
// pick the colorattribute k you want
SetConsoleTextAttribute(hConsole, k);
cout << k << " I want to be nice today!" << endl;
}

Monopoly

This is pretty cool for a 427 line python program. Although there should be a way to play against the CPU and a way to play with more than 2 people.
