Last week I went over the Lhon’s Algorithm that is used in credit card validation. Today we’ll go through a basic way to write out the code for this algorithm based on the break down from last week.

  1. Break the numbers down to a list with and index.

2. Gather…

Like many of my blogs start out, I recently learned this during my Python learning through Udemy.

Lhon’s Algorithm, one of many methods used to validate credit card information. More specifically it helps determine if a credit card number is valid. It was exciting both in better understanding algorithms but…

Lately I’ve been working on projects to buff up my portfolio. One of which is an Instagram Clone.

Now why would I work on a clone vs something original? While I have some originals as well I thought it would be good for me to understand an application that I…

Last week I went on to show how to implement basic text to speech in our Python code with gTTS. Today I’ll go over taking a text file and converting that into audio.

Now, this will be fairly short because there is only one real change in our code and…

First I have to say, the more I use Python the more I understand why many companies use it for their applications (Although I’ll be a Ruby lover for like I think as it was my first coding language learned outside of Html/CSS.)

In the module going over Text to…

As I’ve been learning Python, I’ve gone from using Pycharm to VScode to utilize Python with other languages. While going through this, use of tkinter is bound to come up.

Going into it, my class did not tell me that one cannot run an active GUI (Graphical User Interface) in…

Today I did an interview with 1000hires and I wanted to talk more about it. It was suggested to me from a Career Coach who did my 2nd practice interview and I decided to jump at the chance to get out of my comfort zone.

First of all, what is…

When using a PostgreSQL database with our Python code, there are a few things we need to do that are different from how we use SQLite.

Firstly, downloading Psycopg2 is what we need to do as it will allow us to establish a connection wit our database.

As time as gone by and I’ve been trying to really work on a few wow portfolio projects but more often than not, I started many, finished none. That excitement to build something to show off what I can do got farther ahead of me than my work did at…

Last time I went over Regular Expressions, I covered match and search. While similar they had separate applications that can be useful in user authentication in Python apps. Today I’ll add to that with the last 2 of the 4 main regular expressions. Find All and Find & Replace.
