Also, for my CTEC 121 Python course that I teach at Clark College. I encourage you to leave a comment, smash the Like button and subscribe to my channel.

Video: This technique might help you with your CS50P Conditionals Problem Set

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.
