It's been a couple of years since I started looking into python. But more and more I have been using it at work, and more recently at home. Although I haven't really been pushing myself to learn it outside of what I need to for work, that need has is becoming more and more so I have started following this MIT CS course using Python.
As I mentioned in my first python post I come from a Art background, not a programming one, so I need to make sure I haven't missed anything in my programming education that could cause me to make bad decisions in my scripting.
Trying to learn something, like a language, is difficult outside of work when you spend all day looking as similar things. That's why I'm trying to find fun little projects that I can wrap up in a short time that I can learn from. The last one was a twitter bot. After watching a GDC talk on procedural content, in which one of the examples was a twitter bot, I decided to give it a go. One Sunday afternoon and a little scripting later this is the result. (See below)
I'll hopefully be doing more of these little projects and aim to post them up here when they're done. Watch this space. And follow me on twitter. ?
