Good morning – I am home sick with that cold.

Once again, please check to see if IDLE has been installed on your computer.  If it is, try a quick IDLE turtle program to test it out:

  1. the district’s efforts to fix IDLE have continued over the weekend.  Let’s test again.  If it works, try a simple turtle program.  Click here for a turtle refresher.  Click here for a turtle code reference sheet.
  2. starter code: 
  3. continue your work with codehs.com.

Developers Club first meeting today at lunch in 127 (right here).  Talk programming, plans for the year, what will the first program be?

Please check – again – to see if IDLE is available on your computer. This app lets us program outside of codehs.com.  I was all set to use it and then…it started disappearing again.

long range plans: once IDLE is stable and working, build programs.  Also testing out a game development version of Python called Pygame.

today – please continue your work on codehs.com.  Thanks.

  1. I want to check on the computers and see if installations are working:
    1. start menu should show Adobe Photoshop, etc>
    2. look for an app called IDLE.  Start it.  Does it work?
  2. move into the Basic Python and Console interaction section.  Now that you have a foundation of knowledge thanks to Karel, this section expands the usefulness of Python beyond creating amazing works of art.  Like displaying messages or collecting a wider variety of user input.
