Module 3: Observable & Colab Assignment

Below are my assignments for Module 3. I think I enjoyed python more than javascript- I don’t know how to phrase it, but it just seems more direct to me (if that means anything!). I don’t necessarily mind being frustrated by the small mistakes with big impacts (or at least big error messages – which are quiet helpful for problem solving), because it honestly feels like a huge accomplishment when I figure it out. Part of that is because, as many of us have noted, this is like learning a new language. I think the most difficult part for me is just getting the shift in language- terms and phrases that are correct but maybe I wasn’t “expecting” them so I have to reread the instructions, sometimes out loud, a few times, to understand them.

😀 Python is a very human-readable language, which makes it a very friendly first programming language–but as you note, yes, it can also make it tricky when there’s an every day word that has a special meaning in Python. Ruby (which can be used to do everything Python does) and Ruby on Rails (for building websites) are also very friendly, human-readable languages and fairly easy to pick up.
