This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at if that is a problem.


I don't know about you, but I sometimes type verbosely into my IDLE prompt. This confuses both myself and mycomputer.

>>> Remember the beans.
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
>>> What the?
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
>>> i = hungry
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#18>", line 1, in <module>
    i = hungry
NameError: name 'hungry' is not defined

OOOOH, now I understand. I am not making sense. Thankfully Python is Frank and Frankely points out my error.

After eating, I can quickly restore my confidence by talking to Python how Python expects, no exceptions.

>>> "Recuerdo los frijoles"
'Recuerdo los frijoles'

Much better!
