Nearly every day I will give you a set of coding challenges before the end of class that will involve writing code or adding to code that I've given you. These coding challenges will be turned in on Brightspace but will not be graded. I encourage you to work together on these challenges but to make sure that you understand the concepts yourself.

Each day I will randomly select a set of students to share their solutions to a selected exercise on [piazza.com/purdue/summer2020/com674 Piazza], at least one hour before the next day's lecture starts. I encourage you to also use Piazza to ask and answer each other's questions as you work on the assignments. We will use some of our lecture time to review the problems and I will make sure that a correct solution is posted by the end of that day. As you will see over the course of the module, there are many possible solutions to many programming problems and my own approaches will often be different than yours. That's completely fine! Coding is a creative act!

=== DataCamp ===
 
 
 
DataCamp is an online coding education site, with lots of great resources about Python. I set up our class for free access for six months - you can sign up at [https://www.datacamp.com/groups/shared_links/c474713e6d04d94d410bb7a04fa0e9bad0f7c2ab47bb39a72a2323958787bcb9 this link].
 
 
 
I will put a few courses as assignments on DataCamp which will be optional. I'll signal when you might want to do these courses in the schedule.
