Explorer Task - End

I have looked over everything and there is nothing I am missing so I feel confident at this point in the process that I'm ready to submit. I sort of forget where to submit everything but I will look it up and figure it out.  On a scale from 1-10, I'm at a 10 when it comes to completion.

Explorer Task - End

Today I finished both 2.C and 2.D of the written portion of the Explorer Task Assessment. These were somewhat difficult to write because I had to make sure I explained thoroughly how I used things like algorithms and abstractions in my code while at the same time making sure I stayed under the word limit. After those were done, I inserted the screenshots of my code and exported the document as a pdf. I then put it in my create a final folder. From here I'm basically done, however, I will probably look over everything I have completed one more time to make sure I didn't miss anything.  On a scale from 1-10, I'm at a 9.5 when it comes to completion.

Today, I started writing the written portion of the explorer task assessment. So far I have written 2.A and 2.B of the document. I'm struggling to keep my answers under the word limit as I feel there is a lot to explain in my code even though the program itself is fairly simple. I also screenshotted the pictures I will use for 2.C and 2.D in the written assessment. In the coming days, I will complete 2.C and 2.D of the written portion and I will be all done :) On a scale from 1-10, I'm at a 9 when it comes to completion.

Today I screen recorded my program up and running! I noticed multiple spelling errors and I also messed up user input typing which made me screen record multiple times but I finally got what I was looking for. I also uploaded my code to that website, I forget the name but it basically allows you to draw shapes on it so I did that as well. In the coming days, I will screenshot pictures of my code and begin to write the written portion of the Explorer Task Assessment.  On a scale from 1-10, I'm at a 7 when it comes to completion.

Explorer Task - Beginning

I decided upon magic eight-ball and I have successfully created the code I will use for my program. It wasn't as easy as I thought however, I ran into several speedbumps including how I could elaborate on the simplicity of the code and a few functional errors. For the longest time, I couldn't get the while loop to work inside one of my functions and when it did work it would loop endlessly. I solved this by adding a break function to stop the code and I made the input statement I had for my user 'integer friendly' so that the program would actually recognize the user's input. In the coming days, I will create my video explaining how the code works. On a scale from 1-10, I'm at a 5 when it comes to completion.

I have decided to make a program on fortune-telling... I'm thinking of something like a magic eight ball but I haven't decided. I've seen other people do this online and it looks like a fairly simple yet fun program to design. As of now, I'm thinking about how I can include an abstraction in my code and also create enough functions to fit into my main function that runs the entire program. In the coming days, once I've figured out what I want to do, I will begin coding my program. On a scale from 1-10, I'm at a 2 when it comes to completion.
