Another short post.

 

Here's something I have hinted at in the past but never formally introduced:

 

Comments.

 

Comments are sticky-notes from the programmer.

 

They could be things to remember such as - what to do next.

 

They could be things to explain such as - what does this code do?

 

They could be self-checks such as - this is what should be true leading into this part of code

 

They could be notes to other programmers or team members

 

They can contain copyright information

 

They could contain notes to users

 

Comments in Python start with the # (once called "octothorp" or "pound sign" now called "hashtag")

 

On a given line, anything after the # is ignored by the interpreter

 

Use them.. it's hard to overuse them.
