In this video, you will learn how to make a simple program that simulates deposits and withdrawals from a bank account. The user will enter commands like “deposit 100” or “withdraw 59.99”. The program demonstrates how to use the Python .split() string method, while loops, conditionals, and more.

Returning to Clark College Fall 2022
I will return to Clark College to lead and teach the Web Development program this fall. It will mark the start of my 11th year teaching full-time and my 3rd year on Tenure-Track. New this term is that students enrolled in my Python courses will have the opportunity to earn a certificate from Harvard University simultaneously (CS50P). How cool is that? Come to Clark College and earn a certificate from Harvard! I will share more information on what’s in store for me shortly.

How to make screen recordings of code like CS50 does
Ever wonder what software the folx at Harvard/edX are using to make those cool demo videos showing how a problem should work?
They are using https://asciinema.org/
There are also other tools that you can use. More on this soon.
Video: My CS50P Final Project Presentation
This video demonstrates the output created by a Python program I developed for the Harvard CS50P course that I recently completed. It takes closed caption files and can generate HTML, Markdown or Text. You can also use this application to create clickable transcripts which can be embedded in WordPress or a learning management system such as Canvas.
I’ve Officially Completed Harvard’s CS50P
I’m happy to announce that I’ve completed Harvard’s CS50P – Introduction to Programming with Python course. Even though I do know the Python language, I learned a lot of new things. The Problem Sets were challenging and having to write your own unit tests for some of them was a nice feature of the course.
Onto my next course on edX.
