adults learn to code PYTHON!

This page is the one-stop resource for everything we do in class!
You will be able to find links to slide content, kahoot quizzes and more resources below



Write a program that mimics a chatbot!
Refer to code that you’ve already worked on!

Your program should make use of decision making through if-elif and else conditions.
To make the program seem more “intelligent”, remember that you can nest decision checks (if-elif condition branching)
within other decision checks.

Your program should continue back and forth with the player (user) for a minimum of 8 questions.

For eg:

What is your name?
Hey Amina! It’s great to meet you!
What is your fav color?
Well that’s a bright color! What’s your fav food to eat, all the time?
Omg yes, all things potato forever!
Etc etc

In the example above, the conversation maintained itself back and forth for 3 questions.
Feel free to have fun with this assignment, and make it yours!

If you encounter errors, try your best to fix them, they’ll most likely be one of the following:

  1. Spelling Mistakes / Incorrect Keywords

  2. Missing Symbols

  3. Weird Indents

  4. Sometimes the bug is on the previous line rather than where the red highlight is happening

homework assignment 1

  • Add in dev messages:

    • Whenever you’re jumping to a new method - Something like:
      DEV MESSAGE: Going to LoadCourseOptions()

    • This is so that you can easily follow the flow of code. You can always remove print statements later

  • Add in os.system('clear'):

    • Whenever you’re jumping to a new menu

    • This is so that you’re only seeing the menu you’re currently concerned with

  • Add in spaces in your menu:

    • So that the option is separated from the “Press 1” type options

    • This is mostly for visual clarity
