E42Branching01 – Get your code to make decisions with branching.
June 8, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDTPrepaid through Classes or Patreon, or buy here
A program that always does the same thing isn’t very useful. Especially when you want to give it different input. Maybe you want to type different keys on your keyboard. Or click different spots with your mouse. Or maybe you want it to save the result to different locations. All of this requires the ability to make decisions.
These are not little decisions you and I make like what to eat for lunch today. And they’re not big decisions like what kind of car to buy. These are decisions you have to think of ahead of time and figure out what should be done. In other words, you have to write code that will handle every possibility you can think of that your program will need to handle and then what to test so that your program will know which way to go. It’s like writing instructions for somebody who has no concept of what to do.
This is an online class that you can attend from anywhere. All you need is a good internet connection and your computer. It will help if you have a large monitor or even two monitors so that you can watch and follow along at the same time. Headphones or earbuds with a microphone are recommended to avoid echos.
This is a live class where you can ask questions if you like. Or you can listen and learn and follow along without asking anything if that makes you more comfortable.
We recommend that you plan to join a few minutes early to give yourself time to connect. Click the Venue, Virtual GoToMeeting, for details on how to join.
This is the reservation that you can attend as many times as you want once you purchase the class session. If there’s no button below to confirm the RSVP, then this class is not yet available. Classes are usually made available a month or so in advance.
