Semi-weekly reflection, Sep 30

For the past two weeks, I have been trying coding with a new platform, which is python. I have tried hard to succeed and gave it my all. I found some interest in python, and since it was interesting it made me work even harder. I found out how to print on python, and also make a lullaby. This was successful, however it took me and Loremasterrellim about 1 class to figure out how to get swampy on my laptop. We figured it out and it works successfully, but it just took time to make it work.

This is the swampy turtleworld project I have made. It is really simple but I feel like I have achieved a lot.


My goal last time was to have more ideas and create more stuff with creativity. I achieved my goal by creating new stuff on scratch. One example is ping pong. I made a game that you could play ping pong with a paddle that I have programmed on scratch. My goal this time would be to be better at TurtleWorld. Instead of making really simple programs, I would want to make a more complex programs.

Semi-weekly self assessment, Sep 8

For the 5 previous classes I gave it my all. I consistently tried to succeed. I have constantly tried to become a better scratcher and tried hard every class, making new things every class. My most recent project was a story I made mostly using hide, show, go to x:y, and go to front. There were some mistakes in my projects, however it turned out to be a good project after covering up my mistakes with the good parts of the code.

This is the story I have been working on.

My goal last time was to become better at scratch. I have achieved this goal and by looking at my projects now and the previous ones, you could see a distinct difference. My goal for next time is to have better ideas of what I would like to make. I always struggle to think of what I should make.

Who are you?

I am 19yyun, and I enjoy coding. I believe that I could become a better programmer, and I am very passionate about math. I enjoy the subject, and I am also good at it compared to other peers. I spend time by doing many things, such as doing sports when I have energy, and watch movies when I am lazy.

Storyteller (tier 2)

In my opinion my story is very creative and funny. I believe I am good at making stories. However there are some non perfect parts in the code. For example the fire of the rocket is not attached to the rocket, which makes it not perfect. Next time when I make a story I would like to make the code better and more organised in order to have a more clean story.

This is an example of someone moving and after the conversation they hide. During the conversation one of the sprites go on top of another sprite. As the start block is pressed, the x and y will reset. Hide can be used when something touched and make something disappear, like a coin. Also it would be weird if the coin is on top of the sprite, so by using the go to front block, it would look more real.
