GameJam: 3 keys on the Run

This week, I participated in Python Discord’s 2020 GameJam. GameJams are sort of hackathon for games, often video games. In limited time and from scratch, you have to build a video game alone or with a small team, in a limited time, from a few hours to several days! The aim of this game jam was to use the arcade game framework with Python. I already told you about arcade and how clear and simple it is, in my last article.

How to code a simple Minesweeper game, on a lazy Sunday

Recently, I had the opportunity to train and discover various algorithms to improve my Python skills but also programming skills in general. After some weeks of training, on a lazy Sunday, I was wondering how easy it would be to code a simple minesweeper game. I discovered the Arcade library on an episode of Talk Python to Me where the creator, Paul Craven, was invited. I was impressed with how simple and clear the library was (compared, in my opinion, to Tkinter which I talk about in my previous blog post here ).

As a self-taught hobbyist programmer it’s especially important to me, because it’s the only form of evaluation I can get.

Without changing how the variable were stored or the logic of the program, i just made helper function of the repetition. So, for the code of the earlier blog post:

Refactoring biology project : Part 1

One of my first coding exercise after having getting introductory certificates in python programmation is an open source project. Due to work at my lab, i had to set up a quality control scheme on our ELISAs. ELISAs is a method to assay proteins. Quickly said, we put some chemicals and samples in wells, and the stronger the coloration is, the higher concentration of said protein is. However, we have to carefully check, if our assays don’t get wrong at the time of the experiment or overtime.
