Session 2: What we did!

Today we started off with some simple Python.

We got everyone to log into repl.it and enter the following code:


print("this is python")
print(len("this is python"))

This allowed us to cover Strings, Functions and Nested Functions.

Followed by:


message = "Hello World"
print(message)

This section covered Variables.

And finally:


minecraft = 10
fortnite = 9

if fortnite > minecraft:
print("floss!")
else:
print("creepers!")

Which covered String, Variables, and if/else statements.

That’s a lot to be covered in two hours but the Ninjas were on top form so we got to play a bit of RetroPie and also a demo with two Raspberry Pi hats from Glenn.

Fire up repl and have a go (or enter these into the Python interpreter on your Mac/PC/Raspberry Pi/Android tablet/iPad. We were able to get it working on the Library PCs, and also on Raspberry Pis and our new refurb Chromebooks
