I did the Flappy Code and the Hour of Code tutorials.
The tutorials were easy for me because I know basic coding and did all these things before. I was slightly annoyed doing the repetition over and over again. It was a refresher in learning all I’ve been through to get to the point I was at in my programming journey.
Computer programming and computer science are important things for the ever changing future because everything we do involves technology and some kind of computer along with it.
I chose to help Wilfred because he wanted a dairy cow for production and to feed his family. I understood this from both points of view. I understand this as making money for his family and feeding them too. It’s a smart decision so that’s why I would give him money.
It made me feel useful to feel like I could help this person, I wish it was possible to help everyone but I can’t so I try to help as many people as possible.
The idea of Kiva is nice, because it helps people in need and shows people hope in humanity can possibly do nice things for other people.
I could possibly help people like this in the future because I hope I can make an abundance of money to give.
I chose to help Jose because he is just a guy with a low income trying to support his family and raise his children in better conditions. He doesn’t make a whole lot from his small farm but from the information on his Kiva page you can tell he’s been working really hard. I believe this man deserves some extra money.
It makes me feel good to help people, especially ones in need. This Kiva thing is a really good idea and I would definitely contribute in the future.
I completed the Code With Anna and Elsa tutorial. In this tutorial, I was taught how to put certain actions together to make Anna and Elsa make certain designs with their ice skates. For example, if I wanted to make a line, I would tell them to move forward 100 pixels. I personally do not enjoy computer programming, because it is so much work to make the computer do one action.
For the hour of code I did the flappy bird activity. You program how the bird is controlled, and what the reactions are. Like when you hit an object you can make it so they game ends, you could also control the speed of what the bird goes.
On hour of code I did the flappy bird coding and I made it so the bird never died and it could score a point if it hit anything. I also made a snowflake with lines and circles. I think computer programming is very fun.
The Hour of Code was a challenge at times. And got fairly confusing. But for the most part it was fun to see how to make the actions by the codes.
I thought the hole hour of code thing was really cool because it shows people who don’t know how others create games and websites that we use. I think they could have gone a little me in-depth with and and show us how to create websites but its okay because I already know how to build my own websites with code.
The Hour of Code was kind of fun actually. I did a Flappy Bird game tutorial and I was able to get pretty creative with it. Overall it was a cool learning how to do a little bit of code and make simple games, but I don’t see myself making a career of it.
I was taught how to code in seminar about a year ago. I was taught how to do it on Scratch. I did the code on the website that you had given us, and it looked and worked the way that Scratch worked and looked. I find computer programming to be fun.
