  • Project 1 | 14 Activities

    The Number Guessing Game

    Build a console number guessing game that prompts a player to choose a number between a specified range of numbers. After the user guesses the correct number, display the number of attempts it took them to guess correctly.

  • Project 2 | 8 Activities

    Basketball Stats Tool

    Build a console-based basketball team statistics tool to help you divide up a group of players into teams. You'll apply your knowledge of important Python data structures like lists and dictionaries for the project.

  • Project 3 | 4 Activities

    Phrase Hunters

    Create a word guessing game: "Phrase Hunter." You’ll use Python and OOP (Object-Oriented Programming) approaches to select a phrase at random, hidden from the player. A player tries to guess the phrase by inputting individual characters. Can they guess the phrase before they run out of attempts?

  • Project 4 | 7 Activities

    A Store Inventory

    Build a console application that loads an existing store's inventory data from a CSV file into a Sqlite database. The application will allow a user to interact with the records stored in the database to view existing records, add new items, and backup/export the existing state of the database into a CSV file.

Build a Learning Journal with Flask

Create a web application using HTML, CSS, and Flask, a popular framework for Python web development. The web application, a personal learning journal, lets a user add and edit journal entries and store the results in a database. The result is a useful, blog-like web application.
