Did we really learn anything?
Hopefully you did!
You have learned several basic principles of coding in this short project
You’ve learned that:
- data can be a string, like your name, or a collection of items, like the color arrays.
- you can give your data a name so that it will be easier for you to work with.
- you can write code to find the length of a string, to do math and to compare two things
- there are reusable blocks of code called functions that do what they are meant to whenever you call them
- you can use if/else statements to change what happens in your program
That is quite a lot!
Using external resources is normal practice in professional coding
You may have noticed that your final result was doing a lot more than you probably expected.
Beauty of customization
You will have learned a little bit about customization too. Remember how easy it was to change the look of your bubbles just by picking different color and shape names? You can always make improvements to your base code. You can dig into scripts and change single values, like the size of the dots. Read more on that in the Customization section.
