Invent With Python

I have been interest in learning the Python programming language for a while. My college had offered a class to teach you Python. But I have not seen the class offered in the last two years or so. Finally I have figured it is time to take matters into my own hands and learn the language by myself.

To help with this, I got a copy of the book Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python. I call it Invent with Python for short. I read through the book over the last month or two. I took a lot of notes. But I did not work through any exercises. Bad move. When I sat down to write my first program, I was clueless.

Now it is time to really learn this language. I did complete my first program with the help of Google. My plan is to write the games that were covered in the book. But I will write them on my own without looking at the source code in the book.

My company is sponsoring a Python hackathon in less than two weeks. Time to really get up to speed so I can complete. All right. I can use the input() function to grab data from the user. That returns a string. Need to convert it to a numeric value using int() before comparing to other integers. I can also use the print() function to do my output.

This is going to be a long ride.
