Hi fellow Hiveians,
Today I wanted to catalog a bit of an update on my Python practice skills! It's getting there, not as quickly as I was hoping but progress nonetheless!
Steady As She Goes
Practicing Python has been one of the things I’ve been trying to every night or every other day. The training varies but I’m making progress. Some of the things are still pretty foreign to me but I can usually figure it out. Some of the cool things to do with it is calling things in ranges and stuff. I don’t know how useful it is yet but one of these days I’ll figure out exactly what I need to use in order to do what I need.
FizzBuzz is apparently one of the common ways that companies will test a person to see their programming skills. I've encountered it twice in my brief foray into training and it's a pretty cool thing to have to figure out. It takes patience sometimes for sure!
I just learned how to insert some code into a paragraph with markdown. I was thinking what the hell character is a "back tick" only to find out it's what it known across the world as the SQUIGGLY next to the number one. Cool stuff! Pro code skills right there.
So what this particular iteration of FizzBuzz was asking for if a number is divisible by both 3 and 5 then you need to print FizzBuzz. If a number was only divisible by 3 we should print Fizz. If a number was only divisible by 5 we should print Buzz. It then counted from 1 to 15 and iterated through it until it was finished. I am still not completely sure the point of the name section below it, I've learned and read about it but I guess I just don't understand the use of it yet.
def fizzbuzz(n): #write your code here for i in range (1, n): if i % 3 == 0 and if i % 5 == 0: print("FizzBuzz") elif i % 3 == 0: print("Fizz") elif i % 5 == 0: print("Buzz") else: print(i) if __name__ == '__main__': n = int(input().strip()) fizzBuzz(n)
What was challenging is that it kept failing by only printing 1 to 14, despite the input being 15. Thankfully it took me a few minutes but I figured it out, I adjusted my code a little bit at the beginning and it worked beautifully!
for i in range (1, n+1)
That took care of that pesky problem and I was glad that I was able to figure it out. Sometimes it works out for me lol
One of the other really good things I’ve come across these past few weeks is an additional website and platform to use in order to learn the stuff. The app I’ve been using is SoloLearn but the website that I’ve started to use has been Hacker Rank. They have a different way to show you stuff but it’s good. I think there’s less hand holding with them versus SoloLearn so that’s good. Different ways to teach and learn are really good to have!
