Recap of Week 3

Recap what we've covered this week, and find out what's in store for you in Week 4.

This week we explored how pseudocode helps you plan scripts you want to write. We looked at different data types in Python, and you wrote a script to calculate how old you are in dog years. You rewrote nursery rhymes, and improved your debugging proficiency in another challenge.

Tell us and your felllow learners what you’re planning in the comments.

Next week we will show you some amazing things you can achieve with Python by installing and using external Python libraries to address interesting challenges.
