Weekend Project - Weekend Emotion

Welcome to another awesome weekend and starting today every weekend we are going to do some fun projects and today we are going to do something related to weekend. First of all create an empty python file with the name weekend_emotons.py , it is very important to keep the extension of the file as py which will tell the interpreter that this is a python scrpt file. Save the file in the path of you choice (for my machine the path is ~/PycharmProjects/untitled). Paste/type the following code into this file -
def weekn(day):
  say_like = ""
  if day == "Saturday":
      say_like = "HURRAY it's weeknd :D:D"
      print(say_like)
  elif day == "Weekday":
      say_like = ":( :("
      print(say_like)
  elif day == "Friday":
      say_like = "Yeeeee :D :D"
      print(say_like)

today = "Saturday"
weekn(today)
Save the file and then open the command prompt and type python3 weekend_emotons.py and if you are in linux or weekend_emotons.py if you are in windows and voila you will get the desired message depending on the day you have passed in the variable today.

What the code does?
We created a function weekn which takes in a parameter day. The code checks what day it is, if it’s saturday then it prints the appropriate message and if it’s some other day then it prints the required message. In the variable today we pass the day we want and the function returns the required message to us.

What else now?
Now that you have run the above code and successfully generated the message why not make the code more dynamic? Why not improve it to make it more shorter? So go ahead play around the code an you can post your version in the comment section below.

How To Install Tensorflow On Windows

Why I am writing this tutorial ?
Recently I have started learning machine learning specifically DeepLearning for one of my pet projects, and during this quest of mine I wanted to learn TensorFlow library which is developed by Google. Learning is one thing but first I needed to install the library, but there was this problem which I faced during the installation. I am using Anaconda as my package manager and trying to install the Tensorflow library on my work computer which is behind a proxy, installing directly from the anaconda cloud while behind a proxy always displayed a proxy error.

How did I resolve the issue? Well this is exactly what I am going to write down in the below tutorial. The Steps To Follow
Before we get all cosy with this short tutorial on Tensorflow installation, let me tell you that
this tutorial is on the assumption that you have already installed Anaconda on your machine and you know at least a few basic things or two about python.
If you want to learn basic pyt…
Programmer’s skill set


Hey guys welcome to another article of Thecodingproject. Today I will share an answer to another interesting question for you budding programmers out there. When I first started learning to code this same question came to mind time and again and the question was what skills sets I should posses as a programmer ? What tool set should I start collecting in my coding toolbox ?

A programming language is just an ends to meet the automation/programming goal of a software engineer. So, I would like to touch base on the skills required by an automation engineer irrespective of the language skill set since it would be applicable to every type of programming language be it JAVA, R , Python etc. So, let's see what skills we need to have as a automation engineer-

Logical skills- This is a rather obvious skill that every programmer should have because a even writing the first line of code requires logical thinking so that you can frame your code around the correct logic. Des…

For Loop in python 3 : How to become a Python Jedi - Beginners Python Programming Tutorial - Part 7

I am back again with another part in the beginner python programming tutorial series. We will continue with "Loops" but this time we are going to learn how to use for loop in python 3. 


Difference between For loop and While Loop
A "For Loop" and "While Loop" have a common connection that both are looping statement, but major difference is that unlike while loop, a for loop gets executed a specified number of times.



We can break down the For loop into the following components(Refer to the for loop flow chart below).

The above flow-chart is..well horrible I know, but I make my own drawings because I can't afford an artist. So, bear with me. In the above flowchart is a very basicy, laymanish representation of a for loop. The decision box contains the For statement along-with it's soulmate i.e the Range function. As long as the variable I …
