Is Python used in CSD or code.org for grade 7+


#1

Do any of you know if one of the units in CS Discoveries is based on Python? If so which unit? Thank you

Ms. Gigliotti,

I’m not a developer, but I believe GameLab is completely in JavaScript. I’ll ask someone higher up to confirm. In the meantime I’d suggest the Python tutorial from the website (python.org), Codecademy, Udacity or a number of courses on edx.org or Coursea. Even the end of Harvard’s CS50 now has Python lessons (it starts with C which can be a difficult language to pick up with all of the storage issues.)

I’ll ask and hopefully someone will get back to you!

Brad

No python is used in CSD. It is an awesome language. I used to have the students draw with the turtle graphics (The turtle!) for a few years. That was really fun!
