Python for Kids Book: Project 4


In these posts I outline the contents of each project in my book Python For Kids For Dummies.  If you have questions or comments about the project listed in the title post them here. Any improvements will also be listed here.

What’s in Project 4

Project 4 introduces the integrated development environment, IDLE, that comes prepackaged with Python. In Project 4 you learn your way around the IDLE Shell and Editor Windows. I demonstrate syntax highlighting, tab completion and editor history (making your coding life easier), how to save a file, open a file and run a file from the Editor window . You also learn how to automatically indent and de-indent your code. This makes working with code blocks much easier!

The coding concepts in this project relate to adding comments to your files – how and where to do it and some tips on adding comments so they are useful in the future. I also show you how to use comments in debugging to skip over “comment out” sections of code.
