Today the Python group began looking at the Hangman Game from Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python (http://inventwithpython.com/chapter9.html). There are many new concepts in this game so we are going to spend the next few weeks looking at these.
We looked at Lists which are a way of storing a number of values in one variable. We had some fun writing code snippets mainly based around X-Factor. They are available here https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ax43g3recnn02p6/Cat_QexogU
We looked at some new ways of working with strings such as multi-line strings. We also learned about new types of functions called methods.
Next week we will be looking at a new type of loop called a for loop.
Here are my slides from today. python session6
