For this exercise “Taking A Vacation” that I did on code academy, I had to plan out a vacation and calculate the cost of the vacation by using certain codes. Each code has a function and needs to be defined. I pretty much made a little calculator for my own vacation, in this case we used four cities and the one that was used for the calculation was Los Angeles. Doing this simple coding exercise made me realize that coding is really hard but it can make your life much easier if it’s is done right. For example if I want to find out the cost of the other city, I just have to swap out “Los Angeles” for “other city name”. Also I like the way it is taught because I know that I learn better by doing hands-on activities and tutorials such as this one. This is because the more I struggle the more I learn and not forget easily.
