  12. My Perspective says:

    This seems like a better more practical approach to teaching the base program principals in Python then the Scratch system does.
    The Scratch system seems like an easy to do taste of programming and not intended to teach a bridge into practical Python programming.

    Who strong is this system? Can you program a basis avatar with a rudimentary nuero network. like the fish in Polyworld simulation?

  18. Electrician One says:

    I'm taking another course and couldn't get the turtle to work, after almost giving up I found this video and it was SO easy! Thanks for this series of videos! Every other course assumes you "just know" how to do things with python. Well if your like me and never programmed anything maybe it's best to start on a first grade level… Because of your beginner lessons I have the confidence that I will be able to actually make sense of python programming and get through this other class! THANKS AGAIN!
    From a 51 year old…..
