Today I started on what I hope will be a fun quest to learn the language of Python, my first ever attempt at a high-level language. While I've seen code many times before, I never really understood all the wording and such, but in only a few hours, I can now safely say I'm familiar with the basics. [smile] Things like if, elif, while and a number of other things are now engrained, only took me 21 years to get there.
I've already written a few little programs: Fibonnacci sequence, password, number guessing game, they're all really simple but I'm excited to know I can actually make these things now.
I have lots to learn and will be sharing some of the cooler things (at least cool to me) with you all. So stay tuned!
In other news, Fruny, IrishArtist and I are working towards our card game and have nearly completed the initial design of the game. While Fruny is putting together a card client in Python and IrishArtist is doing some card design work, I'm tweaking the ruleset and figuring out how the card system will work. We've gotten quite a number of offers for help, ranging from art to audio to additional programming, so we'll be seeing just who we'll need in the next few days here.
San Diego is two days away and I'm ready for some fun times. We'll be there for six days (18th through 24th) and will be hitting all the tourist spots in addition to visiting the relatives. We'll be going to Seaworld, Balboa Park (Zoo), that beach with the sea lions (forgot the name), and a number of other places. I'm going to try to get in a game of golf with my cousin but our schedule is pretty tight.
Until next time!
