In scratch, I have learned to use many blocks in all of the different categories. This is essential to know when coding something because each category has a different purpose in code. Below is a screenshot of a quick glide script I used to experiment with the amount of steps an object took to get across the screen.
So far in this class, the best way for me to learn how to do something is to just keep experimenting with something until I get it right. Unlike some other peers, I do not need to look into another game for inspiration into my code.
