PyAngelo News

Welcome to the PyAngelo website. My goal for this site is to teach anyone anywhere how to program. This site uses Python which is one of the most popular languages in use today. However, the language is less important than the concepts you will learn. With PyAngelo you can start coding straight away without needing to install or configure any software. And what's better is that PyAngelo is designed to teach you programming using graphics! This makes learning so much more visual and fun.

Each of our tutorials has a video and the code editor in the same window so you can easily follow and code along pausing the video as required, updating and testing your code as you progress. So what are you waiting for? Jump right in and try one of our tutorials now.

Hello Mr. Rage,

 

Just to let you know that Ask the Teacher doesn’t work. As in, the functionality is added in, but there is an error with the form when trying to submit. It is possible to Inspect and submit the form using JS which works and puts the question in My Questions.

 

Thank you,

Julian Rowse

Also, running Sketches does not work! Please fix soon!

Also, around 12:20 into the “Drawing the Road | Top Down Driving Game” tutorial video, you are sharing your screen on Whiteboard not Chrome, meaning that you’re talking about typing the code but we can only see your whiteboard.

Also, many thanks for the Asset Library; it certainly makes finding music much easier than searching it up on Github!

Hi Julian,

Thanks for your posts. It looks like the ask the teacher section is working but it doesn't show up on the website until it has been answered. I'm glad you are enjoying the asset library too!

With regards to the sketches not working, we have recently made a big change to the site to remove the @loop_animation command. We did this because that functionality made it hard to give meaningful error messages. Now you will need to use a while statement if you need to create a loop.

Does that mean that all our old codes are broken? Would it be possible that old codes use the old compiler so they still work?

Julian, to update the old programs, you need to replace the @loop_animation with a "while True:" loop. If you used any of the sprite functionality you'll also need a "from sprite import *" line at the top of your code. If you watch the Introduction to Programming tutorials you should be able to figure out how to update your programs. Let me know if you need any help with this.
