What’s Next?

Now you know the basics of Python! Congrats! Up until now you have worked within Code Combat and while it starts you out with real code and gets you into the good concepts and syntax, its not the end goal. We want to be able to apply what we learned here in Code Combat to build our own Python programs from scratch, so how do we do that? Well, the most common course of action is trial and error, and following your interests. Do you want to build a tic tac toe game? Tinker and google until you get it to work. Want to build a story based game based on a undercover cow? Start with what you know and if you want to add something to your code, google how to do it! The more you code and work in python even if you are following Google’s lead, the more comfortable you will be in reading and writing your own code moving forward.

That being said, I am working on completing another self-paced course that takes what we’ve learned from Code Combat into the Python IDLE and walks through how to build several simple games. So, keep an eye out for that! If you want to be the first to know when this course comes out, subscribe to Log Cabin Schoolhouse’s email list!

I hope you all had fun and learned a little through this course, congrats again and don’t stop here you have all the tools at your fingertips!
