Self-reflection, February 16th – Ian

Over the past few weeks I believe I gave it my all as not only have I achieved my goal from last weeks post (to work more on codecademy) but I got a lot further than I was before:

I believe I earned “I gave it my all” because I got through a lot of codecademy and learned a lot more that I can apply to other work.

One thing I learned to do was to make a battleship game that was pretty enjoyable to learn and make:

from random import randint

board = []

for x in range(5):
    board.append(["O"] * 5)

def print_board(board):
    for row in board:
        print " ".join(row)

print "Let's play Battleship!"

def random_row(board):
    return randint(0, len(board) - 1)

def random_col(board):
    return randint(0, len(board[0]) - 1)

ship_row = random_row(board)
ship_col = random_col(board)
print ship_row
print ship_col

for turn in range(4):
    print "Turn", turn + 1
# Everything from here on should go in your for loop!
# Be sure to indent four spaces!
guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))

if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
    print "Congratulations! You sunk my battleship!"
    if (guess_row < 0 or guess_row > 4) or (guess_col < 0 or guess_col > 4):
        print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
    elif(board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X"):
        print "You guessed that one already."
        print "You missed my battleship!"
        board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
    # Print (turn + 1) here!
if turn == 3:
    print "Game Over"

My new goal is to get to 85% by the next reflection as I believe that is a reasonable goal for me to achieve.
