Throughout this year I believe I gave it my all most of the time because of my effort into completing most of the tasks at hand.
In the beginning of the year we learned about Scratch and although I knew most of the basics that we were learning, I still managed to get a chance to work on some more advanced topics like making a platformer where the character is not allowed to go below blocks and making the character shoot, jump etc. This was the tasks that I enjoyed throughout the year because it was one of the things that I as allowed to work more advanced on because I knew quite a bit about Scratch.
After Scratch, we went into working in Python and there I learned a lot because I didn’t know at all about Python other than ‘print “Hello” ‘. After working through the first few tasks on codecademy.com I understood most of the basics and when it came to the quizzes I understood most of the questions and only had to search them up every so often. So after learning the basics of Python, I went more into the slightly advanced tasks which were confusing for me, but if it got too confusing I’d ask Mr. Miller for help on what I did wrong/didn’t do.
After I finished codecademy.com Python lesson I went into Ruby and learned the similarities and differences it has to Python and how most other languages aren’t at all like I learned about Python, but Python alone is still really helpful.
Now to what I learned about myself. I found out that if I put my mind to working on something I could easily achieve it, and if I need help I could always help. I managed to become more of an independent person as I started doing the tasks and questions given on my own. One more thing I learned about myself is that even if I don’t understand something I can easily understand it by either reading up on it to help me or by simply asking help and patiently listening and asking if I was confused to what I heard and that I should always clarify what I was told.
Overall I was thankful I chose this class that it helped me learn computer languages which could eventually be helpful in my later years in life. Thanks for the great class and I was happy I came in every day.
