Coding Bootcamp: Build a Web App with Python with Brendan Kohler & Abby Fichtner
Want to learn the latest technologies that startups are developing in? Join Hack Harvard and the i-lab for a weekend of Learning by Doing. We'll build out a web app - from the database through to the UI. We’ll be teaching the basics of programming python, building web servers with the Flask framework and MongoDB, and building responsive HTML5 web interfaces with AngularJS.
Pre-requisites: Understanding of Programming Fundamentals (variables, functions, control statements/loops). Bring a laptop with the latest version of Chrome installed and be ready to code!
Saturday 10am - 8pm (Lunch & Dinner provided)
Sunday 10am - 6pm (Lunch & snacks provided)
Prove Your Chops! To gain entry into the bootcamp, you'll need to prove your chops by completing the following task (you'll be asked to paste your answer into the registration form). We'll email you within 72 hours if you've been accepted:
In the programming language of your choice, construct a function that takes the integer argument n and for each of the numbers 1 through n (inclusive):
1. if the number is divisible by 2, print “TWO”
2. if the number is divisible by 7, print “SEVEN”
3. if the number is divisible by both 2 and 7, print “TWO-SEVEN”
4. if the number is divisible by neither, print “NOTHING”
Make sure you only print one value per line.
For example, this is what your function should output if n = 14:
