The second night was full on with us creating a text based game using multiple classes and inheritance. It was a great learning experience and a good refresher on classes, objects and instances. Something it always takes me time to get my head around.
What I couldn’t stop thinking about was how to implement at Level 3. Is the step up so big that it is just not worth contemplating using Python? The standard requires the use of a GUI and that is not easy. We didn’t even get that far in our course and it requires further investigation.
So is Python really the best choice for a language to be used at school or are there better alternatives?
