Learning a the fundamentals of programming is very empowering, but the next question is how can I use it? We are going to use some of the skills and knowledge that you have acquired to build a childhood game, Hangman, on in the command line environment. Let's get started!
Hello everyone, and
welcome to this course overview for
Applied Fundamentals at DevProTV.
And here to help us is Mr.
So Justin, tell me what are we
gonna be learning in this
this series is actually
a culmination of some of these
introductory skills that we've been
learning over the last few courses.
So if you're here, there's an assumption
you've learned some Python,
you've learned some
concepts about programming.
And now, we're here to flex those muscles.
And in order to do that,
we're gonna apply the problem solving
skills that we also learned about.
To plan our project, draw pictures,
make sure that we understand the dynamics
of what we're trying to build.
utilize the programming concepts.
Like functions, and strings, and
methods, and also loops, in order to
actually build the Hangman game, which
I find is always a a childhood classic.
But sometimes it's a little macabre,
so maybe we'll have to change that
in of itself.
>> All right, well you mentioned
you might have watched a few episodes,
you have a kind of base knowledge.
But who's the intended audience?
Do we need to have these prerequisites
that you maybe have mentioned
to watch this series?
>> I think having the prerequisites,
watching the courses
about introduction to programming, about
getting comfortable with the terminal,
as well how to define and
think about functions.
Those, you might get away
with not knowing those.
But it's going to make a lot
more sense and also help cement
what you've learned in those previous
courses as you build this project.
So it's highly recommended.
You might get away with not having them,
but for me,
I would recommend them strongly.
>> Okay, is this series directed towards
any type of specific certification, or is
this more of just a general knowledge to
help us better coders?
>> This is an application of
some of the beginning things that you
learn when you start programming, right?
So what is an a list, and how do I use it?
What is a string, and how do I use it?
What is a function, how do I use it?
What are the patterns of thought
that I need to employ in order to
Because they're kind of odd
to put all those together.
Now, that is not a certification,
that'd be really hard to certify in.
So this is about leveling up your skills
and making sure that you understand
the fundamentals of, well,
of programing in and of itself.
So if that sounds like something that
you're excited about, I hope you are,
then we'll see you there.
