Go beyond the book and master programming fundamentals with practical projects designed specifically for beginners to hone your skills.
This collection of programming projects features expert, follow-along instruction across 16 individual projects that each focus on a different foundational programming concept. Projects can be completed in order or at your own pace, and a solution guide is provided for each if you get stuck.
Includes lifetime access to 8 beginner-friendly coding projects with an estimated completion time of 3 hours.
PROJECT PACK #1:
FizzBuzz (Python) – This classic learning game makes an appearance on many coding interviews to gauge an applicant’s Python looping and conditional functions.
Random Number Generator (Python CLI) - An alternate approach to a common programming problem that teaches you how to use interact with the terminal, manage arguments, and handle user input—all critical skills real-life programmers use every day.
Coin Flip Simulator (Python CLI) - This deceptively simple project explores producing user-friendly interfaces and computing statistical results.
Currency Conversion App (Nodejs CLI) - At the end of this hands-on project you’ll have a handy command line interface tool that fetches real time data and produces instant results while exploring practical programming concepts such as APIs, handling HTTP requests, and command line interface exploration.
PROJECT PACK #2:
Temperature Converter (Python) – Learn how to quickly build graphical interfaces surrounding a functional Fahrenheit to Celsius temperature converter.
Dice Roll Simulator (Python) – Build on the comparative simplicity of the Python-based Coin Flip Simulator project from Programming Project Pack #1 to build nested loops and more advanced logic.
Guess The Letter/Hangman Game (Python GUI) – Build a fun and functional Guess The Letter game and learn more about graphical application interfaces and APIs using Python along the way.
