This is a basic text-adventure game that I updated from coursework I had previously taken. I know I could have changed some of the functionality to make it easier, but the current implementation highlights specific programming concepts, like text-parsing input with multiple words.
Overall it was not too difficult and once I sat down to do it, it only took a couple of hours. I look forward to hearing what y’all think and would love any and all feedback
The inspiration for my program came from my job as a sous-chef. I noticed that creating a shopping list for the retreat center was a time-consuming task, and sometimes we made mistakes with the quantities. I thought to myself, “how can I automate this and save time for other duties?” That’s when I decided to create a Shopping List Program as a part of my portfolio. While it’s not quite a kitchen planning tool yet, it was exciting to see my simple version take shape!
In all, I would say this was a fun experience. I had a great time going through the motions and trying to figure out how to code my Blackjack game. I would say it took me probably 5-7 hrs of straight coding, not taking into account me being distracted.
I’ve decided to not put classes and objects even though I already started to rewrite this program with it. I wanted to quickly finish this project to improve myself in computing science and do a better job. What do you think? Should I focus on this project to make it better or should I improve it as I learn more things on python?
This game is part of the projects required for the Data Science path from Codecademy.
The rationale was to code a game where the player requires some basic knowledge of math, and shopping, in other words, anybody could play the game, and in the way practice some basic tools.
Completing this project allowed me to review a lot of structures and functionalities learned along the path as well as research and applied others not known. So, running this project made me a little more expert in coding with Python.
I have developed this single and multiplayer mode tic-tac-toe game. Check this out here: tic-tac-toe. It took me about 2-3 days to complete this project and I would appreciate anyone else’s review and feedback on this project. Looking forward! Happy coding !
I chose to build Mancala for my portfolio project.
I had wanted to build it for a while (since it was a game I hadn’t already come across a tutorial for) and thought it would be fun to build and play in the terminal. Back at that point in my learning journey I wasn’t quite proficient enough in Python to get it fully functional. Proud to say now at the end of the course that, although simple in appearance, the game works!
