Hey there, coding explorers!

Ready for an awesome Python adventure? Let's dive into a world of fun with code, where we can make computers do amazing things! โœจ

First up, let's learn how to add numbers and words together by creating a simple module! ๐Ÿช„

Imagine we have a super-special treasure chest called 'my_module.py'. Inside, we'll store a function โœจ called 'add' that can add anything!

Here's how it looks:

def add(a, b):  # This line says: "Hey, here's a function named 'add' that takes two things!"
  return a + b  # This line says: "Take those two things and add them together!"

For example, if you use Jupyter Notebook, create a new plain text file. Write the code in it and save this module in your directory.

To use our funny 'add' function, we'll open the treasure chest like this:

import my_module  # This line says: "Hey, let's bring in the 'my_module' treasure chest!"
from my_module import add  # This line says: "And let's take out the 'add' function from the chest!"

Now, let's test it out!

  • Adding numbers:
add(2023, 2024)  # This line says: "Use the 'add' function to add 2023 and 2024!"
# Output: 4047
  • Adding words:
add("Python", " is fun!")  # This line says: "Add 'Python' and ' is fun!' together!"
# Output: Python is fun!

Wait, there's more! Let's make some animal sounds!

We'll use a special module called 'playsound' from 'playsound' library that we installed and another interesting function โœจ that we are creating called 'sound'!

Here's how it works:

from playsound import playsound  # This line says: "Bring in the 'playsound' module!"

def sound(animal): # This line says: "Here's a function named 'sound' that takes the name of an animal!"
    if animal == 'cat':
    elif animal == 'dog':
    elif animal == 'cow':
    elif animal == 'duck':
        print("Sorry, I don't know that animal's sound!") # Oops!

Save these fun sounds in a 'module_sound.py' treasure chest! โœจ

Now, let's hear some animals! Try 'cat', 'dog', 'duck', or 'cow'!

sound("lion") # Output: Sorry, I don't know that animal's sound!

๏ธ Built-in module

Python comes with several built-in modules that we can import and use in our programs.

We can even ask the computer what kind of system it is!

import platform
print("Your platform system is:", platform.system())  # This line says: "Tell me what kind of computer you are!"
# Output: Your platform system is: Windows ๐ŸชŸ

Stay tuned for more exciting coding adventures!
