>So, last year I build a Sudoku solver in C which was an amazing experience (though re inventing wheel is not a big deal at all), I learned a lot.
>Now, I would like to do a similar project using python (which should be quite acceptable to put on my resume).. Any Ideas please!!
>(Note: I am no computer science guy, My day-to-day affairs deal with resistors, capacitors, transistors etc. I try to learn programming myself at home.. So, I wouldn't have knowledge exactly how a computer science guys will have. But I have more than enough enthusiasm..
Why not simply create a Sudoku solver from scratch in Python.
That way you will be familiar with the logical process and learn Python?
Or just use it to do something you do on a computer you find tedious.
My last Python script (at home) was simply to take a bunch of Facebook
emails and merge the comments so I could go back and read the comments
on a deleted post. A script before that was to help me download files,
but it would save where it stopped so I could go back if I stopped
prematurely or if new files were added to the list.
Maybe you have something you could automate at work? Some kind of
calculation or circuit planning?
For non-CS people, usually games are the most interesting. So if you
are bored with Sudoku, pick another game. Casino games e.g. poker /
blackjack / slots are common beginner games and can be done without
having to learn a GUI framework...you can just print cards/slot.
Hope that helps,
