Through the Assignment 3, I learned a few more things about Python including how to use ‘Try and Exception’ and how to make a function. ‘Try and Exception’ is very similar concept of ‘Try and Catch’ in C++ so it was easy to understand the usage of it. For me, using ‘argument parse’ library was hardest part. In fact, I still don’t know how to use it exactly. I think I need more practice to use it.
Now, I might know just few things about Python but I want to say Python is interesting and easy language ( Even I had a conflict over finishing Assignment 3) especially, when a variable is declared, it is interesting that I do not need to select a type of data such as int, double, float and char. (actually, user can declare a type of data after declare a variable.) Of course, there is a thing that I do not like it. That is indentation. I think it is very strict about indentation since there is no use of brackets in Python. Sometimes, it makes me hard to keep tracking my code.
First of all, my first posting is pretty late. I’m so sorry.
I was using Oracle VM VirtualBox to run Ubuntu until last night. It was slow and inconvenient to use it. I could not take this anymore. Therefore, I decided to make an Ubuntu PC with my 5-years old Netbook. My netbook is the first ’Eee pc’ series, which was made by ASUS. (It really doesn’t look like netbook. Heavy and Thick)
I used the program ‘Universal USB installer’ to make bootable USB installer. After setting the boot priority configuration, I plugged in my USB. Installing Ubuntu was pretty easy. What I did was just few clicks and set my name and password for my account. The installation took 50min including update. Everything works well. One thing that I realized was I did not need to install drivers for graphic, sound and network. Since I had used only Windows before, it was pretty interesting.
