Editor’s Note: On all dive certifications, we try to edit the writing as little as possible to preserve authenticity, personality, and writing style. We typically fix spelling errors, but minimally modify grammar and sentence structure (just enough to ensure readability).
1. When and Why Did You Decide to Pursue This Dive At This Level? What was your inspiration and motivation?
2. How Long Did It Take For You To Accomplish This Dive At This Level From The Day You Decided To Pursue It, And Why Did It Take That Long?
3. What Was The Hardest Part About Achieving This Particular Dive Level?
4. What Was The Easiest Part About Achieving This Particular Dive Level?
5. What Is Your Advice For Someone Who Is Pursuing This Dive And Level?
6. What Are Some Of The Best Resources You Recommend to Those Pursuing This Dive At This Level, And Why Do You Recommend Them? Please Include Relevant Weblinks, If Applicable.
W3schools is a very good starting point for your Python studies. It teaches you the basics of the language by explaining the topics you’re taking and by giving you practice formats.
You can also go to Youtube. It might sound cliche, but you will find a lot of interesting sources that’ll help you improve.
I stuck to those two in order to start learning, but I know that I’ll have many other good options to practice, learn and move forward.
Resource 1: Break Diving - Come talk with other Python coders
Resource 2: W3Schools - A great starting point for Python studies.
Resource 3: YouTube - Just search for "Python Tutorial"
7. Tell Us A Story Of One Of Your Adventures While Pursuing This Dive (At This Level).
I started by making the plan of the website (very simple, title, url, pictures, font…). I made this plan according to what I’ve achieved learning so far.
Using variables, grids, functions, loops, data types… I managed to do something small, but it’s something, isn’t it? I was happy and proud.
Seeing those small achievements come in handy motivates you to continue learning!
I know there are way too many things I still need to learn about Python and so many levels for me to get to. So I’d say that what I’ve done so far is just a simple introduction to what I’d be expecting if I continue learning this coding language.
8. What Evidence Did You Submit to Prove You Met the Requirements for This Dive and Level?
I have also written the following code in Python:
a= Black hair
b= Brown hair
c= Blond hair
if hairColor == a :
print ("You Have Black Hair")
elif hairColor == b :
print ("You Have Brown Hair")
elif hairColor == c :
print ("You Have Blond Hair")
