Getting Back Into Python09 Jun 2018 Coding python coding
I have enough games in my backlog that I could probably play every game to completion and still not beat them all before I retire so that’s kind of low priority, I just need to stop buying new fucking games. Hmm. Looking at you, Lumines Remastered. And N++. And Smash Bros. And the stupid fucking Snes Mini sat on my desk.
Anyway, I was pretty nifty with Python about ten years ago so why not jump back in. I vaguely remember working on an IRC bot for the channel I used to mod back in the day!
I found this list of mini projects which I am going to work through and blog about as I get through them.
- Dice Rolling Sim
- Guess the Number
- Mad Libs
- Text Adventure Game
I spent an evening this week setting up a Linux virtual machine to keep my environment consistent no matter what computer I am using (VirtualBox + Ubuntu 18.04) and revived my old BitBucket account (because I like the ability to set a repository to private) then spent an evening learning Git whilst cobbling together two versions of the dice sim. I’ll make a separate post about that soon.
