A very interesting approach. I think it's crucial for a developer to ask the right questions. If you know what to look for, the web has (almost) all the answers. When starting out, the biggest problem are the "unknown unknowns", i.e. the things that you don't realize that you don't know about them. A guide like this would certainly prove useful in this situation. Nice!


As someone who has been toying with different programs / tutorials / websites to learn programming, and who has zero background in programming, I found this diy guide very helpful.

Thank you.


No problem with TEST in any unit, but no chance in FINAL TEST ... Will you post some solutions or at least some hints later??


I've slightly changed the requirements to make it easier. I've also posted a solution - Please read the attached caveats first.


Thanks for the advises and solution. It looks like your code doesn`t work for me in case that there is more than two numbers for evaluation, I mean 2+3+6=11 - ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: ''

Anyway, I still think this is really too much for "This set of tasks will start from knowing absolutely nothing about programming" :)

And that's what happens when you upload the old version of the code to pastebin. Thanks for the heads up.
