Asking Questions and Support for Course Participants

Support during and after the course

 

All CodeToday courses come with a support package included during and after the course. You can ask us questions about errors or problems you are getting when coding at home, or ideas you have which may may not be sure how to start implementing.

We use the Dropbox sharing system to facilitate this support.

​On this page you will find details on how to ask questions about your programming and get feedback on your work.

Option 1

  1. Download the Dropbox app from https://www.dropbox.com/install and install it on your computer.

  2. Copy the Python file you are working on and want to ask questions about to Dropbox and then follow the 'Get Feedback and Support' section below.

Option 2 (recommended)

This option requires a few extra setting up steps but will then make communication a lot easier and smoother.

  1. Download the Dropbox app from https://www.dropbox.com/install and install it on your computer.

  2. Link Dropbox with PyCharm by following the steps detailed on this page: Linking Dropbox and PyCharm. This will make all of your code (in the shared folder) accessible by CodeToday staff. 

Get Feedback and Support

  • Find the file you wish to ask a question on by finding your Dropbox folder on your computer, and finding the folder "<Participant's> Python Code" within it if using Option 2 above, or else finding the file you wish to ask a question about:

  • Right click (or control-click on a Mac) on the file name and choose View Comments from the menu:

  • This will open the file on Dropbox.com and you will see a comments pane on the right hand side of the page
