Yes, I agree; these instructions are so poorly written. I can't get beyond this problem, therefore no progress. The hint is even poorly written, with no apparent solution. This is the same problem that I had with a different code academy, and I could never finish the course. Just show us the freaking answer, so we can move on code academy!!!! Even when you use other solutions to the problem, it still doesn't work. I'm not impressed with code academy right now.
Spoonfeeding isn't a great way to teach. Cheating isn't a great way to learn. But yes, there needs to be some work done on some instructions for more clarity. However, most of them (and the explanations) only scratch the surface. Codecademy introduces you to some concepts to start your toolkit and it is up to you to expand it.
I printed this, and I know it's not right but it worked. Codeacademy, you need to fix this: 1 from datetime import datetime 2 now = datetime.now() 3 print now 4 print '%s/%s/%s' % (now.month, now.day, now.year) 5 print '%s:%s:%s' % (now.hour, now.minute, now.second) 6 print datetime.now()
Exactly! Yeah, I'm not too impressed with Code Academy's content and their inability to fix faulty content in an expeditious manner. I get the previous comments regarding spoon feeding and figuring it out; however when it's a beginners course FOR BEGINNER's; I think some leeway and mentoring are in order.
So Im 15 years old and really want to "expand my toolkit" but I'm not sure how to. I live in Texas and coding languages are considered foreign languages, so there aren't many options for me in high school currently. Do you have any suggestions after I complete the courses on Codecademy?
