      The irony!

    This is actually meant to be a really good course. Goes hand-in-hand with this freely available ebook.

    • +1

      might be due to not having enough coffee this morning leading to some reading fails for me but - does "freely available" mean that it's "free"? or just that it's available to be purchased without restriction?

      brain hurts already

        You are freely available to access it freely.

      • +3

        You can read the book for free on the author's website but the ebook isn't free.

      It is actually a good course.

      One of my peeves with the Udemy deal spam is us OzBargaineers are so keen to get freebies we overlook the trash-tier level of teaching many of the free courses "offer", and I know it seems unfair to judge a free course but if there are hours and hours of lectures that are poorly made people should speak out about it.

      This is a well made course (one of the few I've almost completed).

    Can you use Python to automate word bolding?

    • +2
      import random
      sentence = "Can you use Python to automate word bolding?"
      for word in sentence.split():
        if (random.getrandbits(1) == 1):
          word = "**" + word + "**"
        print(word, end=" ")
      Can you use **Python** to automate **word** **bolding?**

      (There's probably much more elegant ways to do this, but I haven't read the book yet!)

        Is jv's bolding random? I've been looking for a pattern.

        • What are you trying to achieve by bolding?

      • +1

        It's not random.

        • Yes. jv's word bolding is distinct and calculated.

          • @Chandler: or JV may have the rare affliction Commentus Coprolalia……"words and phrases usually expressed out of social or emotional context, and may be spoken in a louder tone or different cadence or pitch than normal conversation".

        • I couldn't find a jv module to import.

    • I wanted to see if it could brush my teeth for me.

  • rather than you automating, get this done from coders (Labours) lol

    This actually a really good course, I recommend people find the time to give it a go.

  • Hope this is better than the Udemy Vue.js course with the German dude who can't pronounce V's.
