During this quest, my partner Mahmoud Abdel Baki found that my codex entry for the quest Operation was not well written enough. So I edited to make it like this:
For this quest, I looked over and tried many different equations in Python so that I can figure out what the order of precedence is. I tried multiplication and division together, I tried multiplication and addition, I tried parentheses and exponents, and many other combinations so that I can figure out the order of precedence. This is the order of precedence:
- Parentheses (Grouping)
- Division and Multiplication (Whichever comes first)
- Subtraction and Addition (Whichever comes first)
This means that if you have addition coming first before exponents, python will compute the exponents first and so on. This is what order of precedence means.
I truly believe that I gave it my all because especially now that I am in Cigor and am doing python, things are going to be hard and are going to take time to complete, so even though I am doing less, I am actually working harder and am learning more. I might talk a bit in class, but I work while talking and I work a lot without talking.
This week I started working on python and working in Cigor so it was harder and a bit more challenging especially in the beginning. But I realized something, I used to always wonder why whenever I would join a computer programming class, they would always make me play scratch or go on code.org. I always thought it was useless. But In this class, I pushed myself past the scratch and onto the actual coding and I truly realized how helpful scratch was in helping me code now.
I have achieved my goal from last time. My goal last time was to have 300 gold and 1500 experience. I have achieved that. I currently have 364 gold and 1600 experience. My goal for next week is to learn more about python, as well as that I want to have 500 gold and 2400 experience.
I am excited to use python because I can finally actually learn coding hands on and actually get to know the codes. The thing that I am worried about is that because I do not know what to except, I am nervous that things will be extremely slow and it will take me a lot of time to finish levels and get experience or gold. It will also require me to focus much more on the videos and also the instructions. Other than those two, I am excited and ready for whatever is gonna happen.
When I come to building a story, I always have a lot of great ideas in my mind but then when I come to put those ideas into stories it turns out good but not as good as I expected. This happens because of two reasons. One reason is that I just simply do not have the skill to do some of the ideas that I have in my mind. The other reason is that I start working on one of my ideas and then towards the end I get lazy and slack. This again relates to the first reason. I need to work on m patience and I need to understand that sometimes a very simple thing can take a really long time, just as long as it is good in the end.
