The projects live on GitHub:

They are instructor-led, following roughly these outlines:

ColorWall[edit]

  1. Review relevant material from lecture (e.g. dictionaries)
  2. Go over SolidColorTest and DictionaryTest in effects.py as a class
  3. Have students implement RainbowTest

If people finish (3) early, have them tweak existing effects or write a new one. Example tweaks including:

  • changing the hue bounds in Twinkle
  • change the math in Checkerboards
  • write and customize (e.g. colors) your own message in Message

Twitter[edit]

  1. Review relevant material from lecture (e.g. modules and imports)
  2. Go over search() and trendingTopics() in twitter_functions.py as a class
  3. Have students implement userTweets()

If people finish (3) early, have them implement trendingTweets() or customize the display of individual tweets displayed by search() (e.g. display the sender).

Wordplay[edit]

  1. Review relevant material from lecture (e.g. for loops)
  2. Go over words1.py through words6.py as a class
  3. Demo scrabble_cheater.py
  4. Have students explore other interesting word properties or play with scrabble_cheater.py (we've had people start Words With Friends games and cheat using the script)
