Fascinated by the boundless and complex nature of computer coding, I’ve always longed to indulge in its wonders. When our STEAM Team teachers brought the Ozaria Competition up, I agreed to join it at an instant.
I would like to express my utmost gratitude to Caprikon Education for allowing me to seize this invaluable opportunity. Not only did the Ozaria Competition provide me with a platform to practice Python, but also allowed me to strengthen my analysing and problem-solving skills.
I still recall the fulfilling week that I spent on this competition. I was far too ambitious with the story planning, and ended up biting more than I could chew. While a myriad of choices could bring liveliness to the story, it brought many issues that were difficult to overcome. Fortunately, I had received the assistance of my friends, who helped me point out the underlying bugs of the game.
With their feedback, I was able to refine my story and add a special touch to it — multiple endings. The endings of the story change according to the decisions made by players. Though I had coded a ‘choice’ feature before, it still took me quite a while to bring it to perfection.
Aside from learning more about Python, taking part in the Ozaria competition also allowed me to think critically and logically. It was a valuable and worthwhile experience.
