Welcome to the Saturday afternoon projects section of the Python Workshops for Beginners! After lunch, we'll break out into groups to practice Python through short projects on two fun and practical topics.
Wordplay: You are filling out a crossword and need a word that fits the pattern E*G****R. What are your options? How many words have all 5 vowels in order? What's the only common English word that ends in 'mt'? Use Python to answer questions like this instantly while practicing manipulating data from a file and regular expressions.
Shakespeare: How many times does the word 'love' appear in Shakespeare's plays? Is it possible to find negative passages using a list of keywords? We'll use Python to practice our skills and answer questions like these.
