Lecture: Your 3 day overview

Login or purchase this course to watch this video and the rest of the course contents.
0:00 Here is your three-day breakdown for this lesson. It's actually pretty simple. There's not much to it because we are dealing with data structures.
0:09 Super important though, so very important that you get this down. For the first day, we're just going to watch the videos.
0:17 Okay, there's not too much involved with this. Just watch the videos that we have on lists, tuples, dictionaries, and then just have
0:26 a play in the Python shell. There's really not much to do. So digest the content in the videos and then hang around for day two.
0:34 Now the second day, it gets a bit more interesting. What I'd like you to do is follow this link here, this bites of Py code challenges promotion link.
0:46 This will give you free access to this specific bite. This is a little challenge for you. We just open it in a new tab.
0:55 Okay, I will log in with GitHub. So you have to have your GitHub account ready. And there you go. So I'm already a premium member obviously,
1:05 but this will unlock this bite for you to work on if you are not already a premium member. This here is regarding dictionaries.
1:15 So have a good play with this. Enjoy the challenge. Work on it in the command line within your browser and do that for day two.
1:27 Back for day three, this gets a little more tricky. What I'd like you to do is a bit different as well. I'd like you to go into this data.py file
1:37 which is here in the repo. And I'd like you to just have a quick look at the dictionary and the lists that are in there.
1:44 It is pretty much a list of just the United States states and the acronym used for them. So what you can do then is complete each one
1:58 of these little tasks, okay. It will involve you actioning or working against the list in the dictionary, pulling out data
2:07 and just playing around with them. So you'll need to pull them into some, whatever script, import them to whatever script you'll be running this from.
2:17 And just remember that dictionaries are unsorted so that should make this a little more tricky. Alright, so that's your day three.
2:25 Just playing around with that data.py file. Obviously if you want to play around with it in any other way, go ahead, feel free.
2:32 But this is just a couple of quick, these are just a couple of quick tasks for you to do that should give you around 15 or 20 minutes worth
2:40 of practice which is what we're aiming for. So enjoy, these are your three days and let's get on with the video.
