A little while ago I made a dive into learning Python, and to do so, started a “try and code something every other day” challenge. It went pretty well and I got up to about 15 projects including:
- An online magic 8-ball
- Texting app that gives you activity suggestions based on what season it is
- Forecast texter
- Basic questions quiz
- Movie title mixer that reads from files and emails you a movie title
- Texts from your cat (totally revisiting this one)
- Web scraper that tells you when Ghostly artists are going to be in town
- Pizza Randomizer – you enter ingredients, it picks some ingredients and combines them
- BikeTO hashtag scraper
- Recipe maker (you enter some ingredients and it does a search and pulls 3 recipes for you)
- Tweets from my cat
I’d like to get back into doing these again, they were a good learning process, but like all things I had to put it down to pay attention to a few other (awesome) items that popped up.
I also really enjoyed Python. After years of trying to learn programming and trying to think logically, it was Python that clicked.
