Is there a long term practice question (ie. capstone) where the skills we are picking up build into each other?

I learned so much working through one practice suite, I was wondering if treehouse has problems that are "course wide" vs module specific. This would allow us to gradually chip away at a problem and tie in concepts from different modules (good for repetition too).

For example, my first approach was to try and use .format and placeholders {} (instead of concatenating or working within the print function as Craig does in the solution) because I did the Branching module before coming back to the Input practice question.

After trying to apply .format to the print function unsuccessfully using various syntax, I remembered .format applies to variables, so I created a variable to pass in the verb/noun/adjective and it appears to work. Now I'm writing out my thoughts to try and capture the language as well as concepts for feedback.

Code: verb = input("Enter a verb: ") noun = input ("Enter a noun: ") adjective = input ("Enter an adjective: ") mad_lib = "I enjoy practice! I find it helps me to {} better. Without practice, my {} would probably not even work. My code is getting more {} every single day!" print(mad_lib.format(verb, noun, adjective))

In summary: is there a "final project" we can start on to explore the concepts we're continuing to build on?

I believe one of the differences in the "Techdegree" subscription level is that it includes peer-reviewed projects. But there are a number of coding practice sites around, and some of them are free.

Two that I've used are Code Wars and Advent of Code (both free).
