If you still are working on honing your programming skills, then building something simple can help that skill development along. In this series, we are going to build another simple game that allow you to flex your programming muscles. See you there!
Hello and thank you for watching DevProTV.
We're talking with Justin Dennison
about this course,
applied fundamentals, guess the number.
Justin, can you tell us what
the course is all about?
>> So the course is actually to take some
of our Python knowledge that we've built
up in the previous courses thus far.
And kind of apply those, applied
fundamentals, who would have thought?
To create, guess the number,
a very simple game where the object is,
the computer selects a random number.
And then you go, is it that,
is it that, is it that?
Now, I know it doesn't, hey, listen,
it's not Halo, it's not Fallout,
But it does encapsulate a great deal of
things that we have learnt up until this
that's the ultimate goal of this course.
>> Awesome, now,
who's the show targeted towards?
>> This show is targeted to someone who,
you've come through our previous courses.
Introduction to Python, programming
fundamentals, those type of courses,
where you're just getting started.
Like, all right, I have all of this
knowledge, I have this piece and
this piece and this piece.
How do I put these pieces together and
actually build something that maybe you
can hand off to someone else, they can
play it, and see your programming skills.
So it's a very kind of introductory,
maybe an essential type thing,
a rite of passage, if you will.
I take all of these Mega Blok bricks and
then put them together into,
well, a guess the number game.
>> Is there a certification available for
>> This is not certification based,
and the reason being,
it would be hard,
I don't even know you'd get certified.
It'd be like, you are a certified
guess the number builder,
[LAUGH] I don't know how that would work.
But, in the long term, this is setting you
up to see how the pieces of a programming
language, how your thought process kind of
comes together to build an application.
Which, maybe that does lead to
certifications in the future, so
think of this as a stepping stone to
getting a little better at your craft.
>> And you already kind of touched on it,
but what topics are covered in the show?
>> So this topic is actually gonna
look at conditions, functions, loops,
to some extent, how a game works.
And things like, okay, I'm printing
to the screen, I'm taking user input.
So there's a lot of these basic
elements that you may need for
very simple applications that
are all rolled into one.
It is a pick and choose,
essentially, of a lot of the topics
that we've seen in previous courses.
>> Thanks, Justin, so if applied
fundamentals guess the number sounds like
a course you'd be interested in,
and you should,
make sure to see all the episodes
inside of our course library.
And thank you for watching DevProTV,
a good dev pro is always learning.
