So I’ve been a little quiet lately, apart from studying from some very important exams… I’ve been looking out for that one thing which will extend some of my hard core coders! I’ve been teaching Touch Develop, Python and Scratch and would like to step it up a gear with some of my students.
Last week, I received an email from my Wife saying that I should try out the new coding from Microsoft. I had to investigate. This has led me to Code Hunt! It is a free tool from Microsoft which allows you to do debugging. It does require some pre-programming knowledge and it expects you to solve problems. There is a short tutorial and it makes it seem like a game. You capture the code and then find the error.
You are then given the result. You can see it expects X to be equal to one. I would then go and figure out how I could make X = 1 using the code and capture it again. This would then tell me if I’ve solved the code or now. I do recommend you have some coding experience before you try this. Make sure that you read the tutorials fully! You should get a nice little reward when you have finished and then you can continue to code other problems!
