05: Python: Naming Conventions

This activity is designed to help you learn how to use python to write a program that uses and stores data in variables.

Use variables and constants with sensible names
Python naming conventions: Use variables and constants with sensible names

So far we’ve looked at input, output and variables along with a healthy dollop of debugging.

The next step is to learn some rules that help us keep our code easy to read, debug and share so that others can understand it too.

As well as learning how to debug syntax errors, so far we’ve looked at how to do input and output in python. The next step is to learn how to store the data that’s been input and use it as part of the output. That’s where variables come in handy.
